I just bought a 1984 mustang with a 302 4bl and put a new starter solenoid and fuel pump in and still wont fire. Going to shoot car please help.

Check to see if you are getting fire to the #1 cylinder.  If not, then it needs to be timed.  Also, if it is a carburetor engine, take off the fuel line and see if you are getting fuel up to the carb.  If not, then the fuel pump is not working, or the fuel line is somehow stopped up.  Check the fuel filter to see if it is stopped up.

Not sure just what you are looking for, but here is a diagram of a 302.  Hit the "zoom in" button after clicking on the link below.

i got my 84 to come to life today but it takes a lot of tries to get it to start up and once running it backfires loudly and occasionally throws a flame or two out the exhaust.

Most likely, that is a timing problem.

I am trying to find a new intake manifold for my 302? I am also trying to find out if a 5 speed transmission from a 1994 3.8 v6 will bolt to my 1984 302?
