I have a 1968 cougar 302" with Air Conditioning
Can I install a cam thru the front without
removing the engine?
Thanks

Yes, but you will have to remove the radiator and hood latch, and the center grill.

guide it out and in carefully so as not to disturb the bearings to much. Also be sure to use proper additives in your oil (zinc/zddp) to protect your investment....she'll purr like new I bet!

As bad69cat says, slowly, carefully in and out of the bearings, I found out after putting all back together that I had a couple of bearings in the oil pan. Having to tear it all down again and install new bearings was a pain. Good luck!
