New to Heavy Truck F-750 ownership

Just purchased 1971 F-750, in very good condition. Has 391 with 5 speed trans, very little rust. Previous municipality vehicle, they built the custom flat bed around 2006. Like a time capsule.

Drove it home in 0f temps, heater works great. No tachometer, and no governor since they replaced the distributor with a modern Pertronix. I kept it under 50mph to play it safe, need to install a tach so I know if I can push it much higher. Engine sounds like it's screaming at 50, but it has an aftermarket aluminum fan on engine and I know they can make a lot of racket. Brakes work awesome, but carburetor needs some love. Had to keep choke 1/2-3/4 on the entire drive, so something is messed up with the Holley.

One of the best things was the folder of service history all the way back to 1972, about 2 inches thick. Its had a lot of service...

Glad to be here again (password problems). Presently working on a 52 COE F6, 75 F250, and a 77 Highboy. Daily drive a 2011 F 250 SD with 6.7 Powerstroke. Couple of flat fender jeeps. Have used this site for years to solve problems.

Beautiful. You'll like it. I had one a few years ago. Just remember many standard 390 FE parts will not fit on the 391 industrial. Strong old beast though.
