Question 1973 F250 specs

Hey guys,
I've put a 390ci from a 73 F250 into my 65 falcon and was wondering what the specs were on it. Its a stock 2bbl engine. The only specs I've been able to find online are for the 4bbl. It has an Edelbrock 390 performer intake and Edelbrock 725 carb, but I didnt' change the cam. If you could give me a little advice on it or let me know anything, i'd appreciate it. I was finding that the stock 4bbl was producing 300 bhp, so I'm not sure what i have with this one.

Thanks
Holli

Just out of curiosity, hows it handle and how fast does it do the quarter mile and what kind of gas mileage are you getting?

You are actually looking to find out the specs of a 390 2v engine ...not the actual truck...right ?


Engine specs in Trucks are something Ford hid from people.

I'll see what I can find.

Maybe check in the FE engine series forum ?


EDIT:

195 hp @ 4400 rpm
319 ft lbs torque @ 2400 rpm

I'm in Oakley.

And sorry guys, she hasn't ran the quarter yet and I still have no idea how she handles. I still need a driveshaft and a to finish the brake lines in the front to get her streetable, but i also have home-made open headers on her, so gotta do something with the exhaust to get her steet legal. Then of course the other little things that you need... like gauges, etc. I do have a video of the first time I turned her over on my webpage. Check it out @ www.lemanz.net/holli.htm

And yes, i'm looking for the specs of the 390 itself, not the truck. I was just letting you know what truck the engine came out of.

I'm actually a member of an FE forum somewhere on the internet... they didn't have much input for me, so I kind of forgot what website it actually was...lol.

yeah, i haven't been able to do to much to it the last few months, to many other things going on but it'll be a cool car i think. Next step is wrapping the front and putting a straight axle under it.

I really do own a ford truck though...lol my boyfriend and I have a 71 F250 and if you count this as a ford... we have a 71 IH travelall too. And I'm working on getting a 72 F150 right now if the guy will take a trade for it!!
Holli

PS... know anyone in Northern Cali interested in buying a 1971 International Harvester Travelall, 4wd, 4spd, 345ci, runs, needs a front wheel cylinder and radiator.
Just checkin =D

the truck 390 specs are way lower than the car specs. the trucks had lower compression. try the fe forum here they have a ton of info.

I thought that starting in the early 70's, all cars were rated at the rear wheels.
