Is an 87 Fuel injected? I'm not sure when they switched the trucks.

Married to TARA so that makes me "TARA-fied"!

Does it have a computer?
My 1982 F250 had a computer (EEC-III). So to desmog it, I had to remove the computer, replace the carb (it was a Variable-Venturi carb so needed to go) and install a stand-alone ignition system (I went with MSD 6A but DuraSpark is good too).
