thanks for the info in new to the computer thing I guess you can say I'm old Xx loved. I just bought this bronco from a old farmer which he passed away; and it has a.400 motor with a Holley carburator with a rajay turbo on it. I can't find any history on it on the Internet your forum is about the only place that I have found with any info about it...I'm haven't even started the truck. Is there anything I should know before I do....if this turbo system is rare and if it is a Carroll shell by product is it worth anything. I'm not sure on what to do with it..thanks

JMO:

Rare-probably

Worth--something, but not a lot

Do with it? --pull it off and rebuild the engine with some compression and a real cam, add headers and 4bbl if you like.

Serving suggestion, ymmv

Check oil and coolant before you start it, not sure what else to check until you find out if it actually still works. Add-on turbos sometimes suffer from coked up oil in the bearings, as there is no oil flow or coolant to mitigate the heat soak after shut down.

You will know pretty quickly I would think.
