I've been a fan of the "Cleveland" engine for MANY years - for those wonderful canted valve heads, not the oiling system!

You FEEL it's worth $16,000.


Wow! LOL! Nice engine? Yes. Disc brakes? No. Dana 44? No. Fuel injected? No. Winch? No. Original? No. Nice paint? No. Relatively straight? Yes. ...

The source 77&79F250 points out, "I think" goes to the original carburetor solenoid? If you have an aftermarket carb you aren't going to use it anymore anyway.

I would go for an Edelbrock Performer 400, then Weiand - now Chinese made unfortunately. The Edelbrock SP2P is a "low performance" 4-barrel intake from what I've been able to find out.
