5.0 Block Question

I purchased a 5.0 motor to put in my jeep. Was told it was an HO but it's not, wrong cam firing order, plus it has Flat Tappet Lifters. My question is can I put the roller lifters and cam from a 89 mustang in my block. The block casting number is EZTE, any help would be appreciated.

Why? its got the EZTE block code with E7TE Heads, and it has valve reliefts cut into the pistons, plus new pushrods for the rollers? Whats the difference? Isn't this the same block the mustang used?

I know its pry a truck motor, it had flat lifters and the wrong cam, it came with the HO intakes, that's why we figured it was the ho, never pulled the lifters tell we figured out the firing order was incorrect.

Huh? You just need to drill and tap two holes for the plate that holds the dog bones in place.

The truck block I have was already tapped and everything. It will be 100% bolt up.

No it looks like mine needs to be drilled and tapped to hold done the retainer, no big deal. Hyde, yea we got it running but it had the stock cam, and the wrong firing order, it should be ripping here in the next couple weeks, swing by. As for the Talon, Shelby bought it and then decided to do 150 on the fresh motor running from the cops, and ended up blowing the motor, what an idiot. Thanks for all the help guys!

Well I heard about the whole Talon thing and saw it at Terry's yard. As for the Heep I will stop by next time I am over in your part of the country. Good luck on the cam swap
