But I remember all that takes money so am trying to make do. Sorry to take up your time reading this crap just wanted to know your thoughts in the motors.
hello F-250 restorer.. ive seen previous post and responses from you and i had a question maybe you could help me out with... i have an 84 f250 with a 4 speed 1 barrel 4.9 300. i wanted to take the intake and exhaust manifold off to replace the gaskets...due to an exhaust leak.. but i cant get them seperated and the bolts holding them together on top of the intake manifold that bolts to the exhaust manifold one snapped off so im screwed.. i was going to replace the intake and exhaust manifolds now, but was thinking of getting a 2 barrel carb? whats your thoughts.. i dont have any performance parts on this engine so i want to keep it simple as possible, but i know ill have to hack the manifolds off to get to the bolts inbetween the pipes..and im worried about the egr tube what do i do with that or were can i get one... any information that you have is greatly appreciated.. thank you -eric
Jim, I would recommend the fan that I did the write up for in the last issue of True Blue Trucks magazine: From a lat 90's model Ford Contour or Mystique, with the 24 valve engine. It is a dual set up and pulls 3400 cfm! I use it in my F350, and fully loaded with boat, camper in Baja I've never had a prob. I hooked each fan up seperately, so if one fails I can still get home. I'll prob. be selling them on my site: truckmeblue.com. Email me and I'll send you the article.
