Main thing with the old donks is the crappy gearing that comes with them, mate of mine has a 253 worked up sounds wild as but goes like a bag of crap because its got a 3 speed and crap diff behind it.

253 sound good, and they um sound good, they go nowhere.... It's amazing the difference it makes going from a 3.625 inch bore to a 4 inch bore makes (308).
You will find that JGSW**** are late model blocks, the old JGNumerical are older blocks.

From memory the 302W had the engine number at the back of the block behind the intake, the 289W had them on the front beside the water pump... Or was it the other way around?
Please correct me if i'm wrong, it's been a while since i played with an old windsor.

your right on the location of the number its on the left side rear just below the last spark plug.

So you say the JGSW** are late model motors like what they but in the xr BA'S

My AU starts with JGLW, my EF was SW.
