That's a Mercedes engine, not this thing they are going to be using. Smoothness may or may not be part of it's strengths. Notice, they don't talk about it's quietness, smoothness or any of that. ...

I just went back to stock fan clutch on my 94 F-150. Electric fans didn't produce any tangible improvements. Well, no fan noise at startup....but the mpg didn't really improve and the fans crapped...

I'm thinking you guys with carbs would get more bang for you buck by converting to the EFI engines. Most can be had on ebay and jy for less than a $1K, and doing the head only would be around $300. ...

A/C compressor swap is the best thing to do, followed by a new aluminum radiator, modern Holley (650 cfm is plenty for under 400 cid) carb. The single serpentine belt and pulleys is a great idea, but...

Gears will wake up that engine and allow it to spin faster quicker, but going from 373 to 430s isn't going to net much. It will be the best money spent for the bang recieved.

I remove the dang stickers. Took the F-O-R-D off my 1994 F-150 tailgate. I just didn't like the lettering. Looks much better clean than with those stickers. Heck, everyone knows an F-150 Ford...

I've had the "miss" issue on my 94 since it was new. Took it in for warranty claim when new and was told that's the way they run. WTH? Oh well. 15 years and not another problem, but it does do...
