Ok I have a question.. How much would having a 302 engine change the towing capacity?
Anyone care to venture a guess??
I have a 26 foot Argosy (airstream) travel trailer coming in at 2600 lbs empty..
I made an 800 mile trip already bringing the trailer home and didnt encounter any major
issues other than the lack of trailer braking on wet roads.. I really tried to avoid pushing it at all..
My 91 F-150 is equipped with a class 3 hitch, and if it looks like the F-150 will not be overloaded than things like a trans cooler will be installed. The F150 has an AOD automatic trans. I did use it without going into od. With one exception on the way home for maybe 50 miles. I couldnt see any issues, but again did not push the trans. And any incline went back to Non overdrive.
