    Always Bill, you deserve it!

    I didn't mean to suggest you were unaware of how that tunnel was going down, just that it related to your earlier post.

    I'm a geek for infrastructure!

    YOUR 2012 post
    "I have a NOS TV cable for a carbureted 300 6 w/AOD if you need it. It was bought to use on a friend's E150 but never installed."
    Do you still have? Would you happen to have a photo of one of these hooked up? I want to put a AOD behind my 240/300 thanks for any input

    Nice, my 85 wasn't a woody, but it was a Mark Cross model. It had an unfortunate run-in with a distant cousin, a Mercedes ML320.

    I am following Mathew's '86 FE build and just noticed your '86 with a 460. I have a 460 in my '85. It has the fishing weight, Autolite carb on it. I am swapping it for an Edelbrock Performer (#1406) today, but I see you have EFI.

    How does the older engine handle the EFI?

    Did you have to use the newer (EFI) heads?

    Right now, I think my truck is getting about 5 MPG with the Autolite. I am hoping to get at least 10 MPG and hopefully 12 MPG with the Edelbrock.

    How does yours do with the EFI?

    I had an '86 F250 Super Cab with a 460, Holley 650 DP, 4.10 gears in a Sterling rear end. As long as you kept it at or below 3,000 RPM (about 55 MPH) it got about 12 MPG.

    My truck has a Dana 60 with 3.54 gears. So at 65 MPH, I am below 3,000 RPM.

    Bill, That is very noble of you. (I can't find a 'salute' smiley)
    Feel free to PM me any time.
    Perhaps I can offer some insight or explanation.
    Understand that it is all 'on the spectrum' so there is a wide range of challenges and behavior.
