The first thing to do is to make sure that everything matches. The engine could have been swapped and parts could have been swapped. On a 51 year old truck, anything is possible.

Cardone is good. Napa is overpriced on many things. Try other sources.

Something to be aware of is that the rebuild may be a Motorcraft, rather than Autolite. There is absolutely no problem...

It is because it is a Y-Block ;).

The next step is to make sure oil is getting to the top end. After you have put a few miles on it, pull the valve covers and make sure everything is wet with...

Tedster,
Some do camp out at the track. A lot of us stay at a Super 8. In the morning, there's not a whole lot of time to do anything, so most of us eat breakfast at the motel. So that's one...

The valve train is the only thing that is significantly different from a 5.0. If you have lots of issues there, then something is wrong. Otherwise, it's points, condenser, oil change, carb...
