Forgive me if this sounds stupid, but I am not very familiar with Ford trucks. I recently bought a 1988 F150 Lariet. I saw the original window sticker in the glove box. It listed the optional 350 engine and dual fuel tanks, so I would guess it has the 350 engine.
However, the man from whom I purchased it said it was a 305. He said the engine and trans were replaced at 100K miles. That was 10K miles ago. Now, that man purchased it from a recently widowed female friend, so he may not know the trucks history.
What is an easy way to check what size engine is actually installed?
I ask because I am having some minor issues, and want to be able to accuratly list items when I ask some questions about what troubles I have. So far, the truck seems nice, but there are some issues I need to resolve.
I also have an 88 F-150 4x4 with daul tanks. However It has a 351. The 350 is a GM motor isnt it. As for i.d.'n the motor the 7 digit of the vin number (should be a letter) tells you what size the motor is. Mine is an "H". Since your motor has been replaced you'll have to get the number of the block.
