66 Ford

I got my 66 F350 home a little over a week ago.It has a 352 with a 4 speed trans.It runs good.Drove it up the road last week and i like it.It has 88,000 orginal miles on it.Steel flatbed.Been doing a little work on the bed and got some of it repainted.Order some new lights for the bed waiting for them to get here.Just thought I would let you guys know.Tony

I looked and apparently my dad got tired of all my stuff laying in his barn since I got married and moved out. all I could find were the parts and pieces of my old 65 mustang , the bigger ones " engine, trans,headers stuff like that". sorry I couldn't help but I'll ask my pop when he gets back in town maybe he knows where all that stuff went.

Question Huh??

Why would a 352 engine be any harder than a 360/390 to get parts for? Engine parts are the same except for crank, rods, pistons and rings.

Main and rod bearings, valves, lifters, gasket sets, waterpumps, fuel pumps, distributor parts, spark plugs, carbs (2V)...etc are the same.

My guess is your parts store may not list the 352...?
