Bought this 1979 Ford F150 4X4 with a C6 automatic transmission and a 351M/400 engine in it from a kin folk of mine
I drove it around like this for awhile and it looked trashy, and the cab has some rust so I decided to spice it up so I bought this 78 2WD Ford F150 for $400
I was thinking about swapping cabs but I looked and thought, I have to rip this and that out and it would eventually be a headache. So I decided to keep the cab and then started with this process
I had the brakes fixed and got the motor running better but the carburetor (Edelbrock Performance Series 4 Barrel) is a problem though (even though it is rebuilt) it tends to flood alot. So I am going to need a new carburetor. People told me to stay with Edelbrock so I am probably going to but I have to figure out what kind I should get.
I drive the truck around a good bit but then I may go bog with it some (but not all the time).
So I need some opinions about my engine/carburetor/gears/etc
So I bought this 71 Lincoln 460 (from what the vin says) but the top intake has D5VE.
And then I started to taking it apart to see if they did anything to the engine before.
Here is what I did from the beginning to the end for today:
Sludgy oil..needs to be cleaned out-any ideas what I should use to clean these lifters?
start taking the carb off but accidently broke a linkage on it...
