absolutely not the 302 is in the front and the 460 is in the rear
In mechanics books it says to set the timing to 6 DBTDC with a timing light, (Caution: this is with all the pollution stuff on the motor) If you removed the pollution gadgets the timing should be set with a vacuum gauge and the timing will be 12 DBTDC.
As far as I know, yes you can, but you have to get a 1979 and later block in order to do so. (bores were made longer in the block in 1979)
