Default jeep cherokee chief build

Hey guys so i posted earlier this year about considering dropping a sbc or 302 in my 85 chief, well i ended up going with a 302 and i am currently building the 5.0 up, new cam port/polish stage 2 intake with Edelbrock 600cfm 4bl carb and all new ignition system. When i get the parts back from the powder coater ill make sure to start a timeline of the build, i think it should be a cool project. I'm also lining up a new transmission for it and every part in between. I have seen alot of questions about a build like this and this build is fairly common where i live, so i will share what i learn with the forum.
