Can you give any information on a 302 chevy engine?

first off, im alsmost certian that the chevy 5.0L was a 305, and the ford 5.0L was a 302, but i could be wrong on that.
the 305 gets its roots from the 283 chevy small block, and some gen 1 305/350's still share some parts with this motor
the chevy 305 is simply a de-bored chevy 350(not to be confused with the big block 350 found in old chevy cars and trucks, which was later bored out into the very powerful 409), and shares numberous parts with this engine, and its little sibling, the 4.3 V-6(which is simply a 350 with the back two cylinders removed)but the stroke on all these motors were the same.
about the only things different would be the heads and pistons, and related parts(rings, valves, some bearings, cams)
the crank, block(except for the bore), carb/intake system, oil pump, oil pan, valve covers, timing, water pump and other parts are the same, as long as the years match.
there were varying generations of this block.
1st gen(pre 1985)
2nd gen(after 1985)
there were also performance forms.
ls1(305 and 350) was the older, less sought after performance block(found in the old POS crossfire injection vettes and camaros).
the lt1 was a 350 only engine found in newer camaros, trans ams c5 vettes and late model GTO's.
chevy has since dropped the 350 engine yet again(as it did about 5 years ago, but brought it back) and replace it with the ls6 6.0L motor found in the new SSR trucks, silverado SS-AWD, c6 vettes and some GTO's. but you can still get the good ol 350 in the standard GTO's. the new 505HP ls7 7.0 is also available in the z06 vette, and its main block is found in some chevy trucks. all which derive their pasts from the original small block 283...
this is what i know to be correct, but dont quote me on it, i may be a lil wrong on some specifics, but if anybody can find any errors, feel free to correct me.

I know about the 305,350,283's, 307's and the early, 265's. But the 302. In a chevy. Stumped me. According to Hollanders interchange, these engines were produced between, late 67, and early,70. They were put in some z-28's from the factory. Hollanders dosn't give, all the part #s If I could give you a factory mold #, from the cam. Could you give me a cam of the same grind, from crossing your parts? Tell me what you can do.
