And I'll stick with the 400 and C6 for now. Rebuild kit and TQ for the c6 is stupid cheap when it needs it.

Getting a 78 f250 this week, camper special, 4x4, 400m, c6, extended cab. It needs tlc but it's the right price. The truck was used for firewood for a few years so I'm thinking flatbed. It's got 4.10...

thanks for the info. I was told it "had" a 390 and now has a 400 in it, but I'm not too sure about that. Are the 400's worth rebuilding? I've read some mixed stuff about them, esp compared to the...

I'll have to look into the shackle flip.. Would it be cheaper/easier to put blocks in the rear? I found a lift block kit for about $80. What would I need to lift the front 3-4 inches? 1 or 2 leafs?...

Thanks for the quick repsonse! Did the 300 6cyl ever get paired with the c6? I love the old straight 6's, and would be cool to have one in there. I have a lead on one out of a 79 that runs great for...
