Well, I got what I needed out of insurance without to much of a problem. The 71 is going to the scrap yard in Axtell KS pretty soon. I got a few things to strip out of it then it goes to scrap. My new baby is a 1977 F150 4x4 I bought tonight. I dont exactly like the 351M it has in it but oh well.
I picked the truck up from an old farmer that bought it in 1979 and used it around the farm since then. Grand total $400. I need to do some tinkering to get it to idle and that is all.
Well, the 351M is kinda tired, not running the best oil pressure. From what I read thats pretty typical of these when they get old. A kid I work with has a 400 I am buying from him this fall if it doesnt go anywhere. His motor only has 30k miles. I just need to swap oil pans since it came out of a 77 2wd. I will throw some pics up tomorrow night of the new beast.
