|I found a dude here in columbus that bought a crate motor 4 years ago and is selling it.
Long block, the paperwork says 71 F150 or econoline.
All new, wants like 800 bucks for it, half what he paid. Inside on a stand.
I have lost my early ford pizzazz, so from the people who know stuff here can I bolt an expo intake system on it and would it be worth it.
I'm leaning heavily toward no, I would have to see what cam is in it. Those early ones were not rollers and I think they will not tale roller lifters due to the gallies not being cut for the notch?
The only great thing is it would be a fresh piston fresh rings fresh valve springs and seals... even from 71 they went like 80K miles without problems. I wouldn't have to tear it apart.
The sensors/distributor replacement with the synch thing, none of that bothers me I can figure it out that is fun.
I'll see it today and get copies of the paperwork, probably call the builder to see if it has been updated for unleaded fuel LOL.
I dunno I'm just lazy at this point and want to put something together that I won't have to pull in 6 months.
Truth sounds like hate for those who hate truth.
