Can anyone identify this engine?

As some may know, I got an Ď86 F-150 and the seller said it had a 5.0 from a 1979 f-150 but he didnít do the swap and didnít know much about it SO I was seeing if any of you fine folk could tell from my bad photos. Yes the engine looks terrible but Iím trying to polish the turd

Sure looks like a 302....
Contrary to popular belief..... it's not impossible to polish a turd. Myth Busters did it and I am doing it right now on my 302.

So hereís my questions!

Is there suppose to be this gap? Also that plate where the throttle cable attaches becomes super stiff once the truck is turned on making the gas pedal stick really badly. (Makes it hard to shift)

What does this thing do!? It has a spring attached to it and a set screw but I can seem to figure out what the heck it is.

Fuel spits out of this... I assume itís not suppose to do that?

Yep.... there is supposed to be a gap. That is the dashpot.... a part that control the closing of the throttle.

From all the other issues I can say this.... You are in BAD NEED of a carb rebuild..... (Or a new or rebuilt carb.) Yours sure is FILTHY!!!

The part that spits fuel.... that is where the accelerator pump resides. and NOPE, sho nuff aint supposed to leak.

Rebuild kits aren't very expensive.... Maybe about $25...

These are easy to rebuild..... Yours looks like a 2150 .... clean off a little of the grunge and see what you find under there.

Well a rebuild obviously couldnít hurt. I did notice at the bottom of the accelerator pump there is a little hole and thatís where the fuel comes out. Is that hole suppose to be plugged?

There is a diaphragm inside there and it is probably punctured....
Looks like....



I'm not so sure about the "wouldn't hurt" part.....
I think it is very necessary
