1985 F350 XL, 4 door, two tanks, straight body, couple minor bumper hits cracked the odd molding and lense . been sitting for a few yrs, was primed for repaint before being put up
sweet little 351, that has a jasper rebuild about 3-4000 miles ago, needs carb work
it was a work truck, but well maintained, the old guy got sick and died, and it never got put back on the road
one problem, one of the guys employees must have had a problem
the truck has B.O. seinfeldian B.B.O…, it s bad.
my boy dropped it off to me a couple of days ago as a gift , he says he didn t know, but he drove it… and he smiled…, LIAR!!!
it has a MSD box, that apparently needs rebuilding, instead of the original ignition box, which I know nothing about, but that he says is better,
he used the one off his 1980 z 28 to get it running, which I also don t understand how it would work for a GM and a Ford.
I won t ask any specific question, as they are too numerous to mention, but feel free to chime in with anything
my boy is gonna do the carb and ignition for me, and it should be running fine soon, the motor purrs, but won t run at idle
I have a longterm plan to make it rather nice, and a longterm purpose in mind for it.
did I mention that there is no significant rust?
cab supports are fine, bed is lovely, floor is great… amazing
