    I have sent you a message response to your phone but have not heard anything back. It is
    Labor day weekend so you may be out of town. You can also send an email back to [email protected].
    Thanks Vern

    Hey Abandoned Brono, I was wondering if you ever found a solution to your issue of "fuel lines running dry" in this post

    I am having a similar issue on my 1979 F-150.

    Also, saw that you're in Idaho, I'm not far away in Walla Walla! Pacific Northwest representing with the old Fords

    Hey AB, Ive been following your threads for over a year now, you and F250restorer. I am doing a 360 to 300 swap in a '76 F250 2wd. I'm having issues with the perches, and signed up so I could get your input (never needed to ask any question before b/c everything else has been covered). If you dont mind, and have the time. Thanks... MIKE

    Thanks for the info.Would milling the head down increase compression?

    I got your message, thanks it's a big help. A follow up question though. Do I need to hook up the smog pump to an egr or is there another way? Sorry to bug you, I'm just trying to figure this stuff out. Thanks, John

    I haven't figured out the private message. I'm not that tech savvy I guess lol. But thanks AB!

    AB I may be moving to the Boise area and was wondering how you got your rigs to pass emissions. I have a 300-6 in my 86 F250 4sp. Points dizzy, single barrel with stock intake exhaust. but I have a single plane Clifford and some autolite 2 barrels I'd like to install. I'll probably go with the Walker main pipe and FI exhaust manifold. I'd consider a 600 cfm four barrel, probably edelbrock because I'm not an experienced tuner. And I'd also add a Petronix or DS2. Any help or advise would be appreciated. John

    Got a box of parts Friday and now I have a few questions I need to ask (e.g. does it matter which way I orient the 4 bbl carb?). Any chance you would be so kind as to give me your number so I can call and get your input? If not, I understand.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I don't see a reply button so I must be limited in my account as a newby.

    I am in Lewiston, just down the hill from "scow." I take it you were in school there? I teach at LCSC. Yes, dark at 4:00 sucks, but light until 10:30 is nice in the summers.

    You got it; the feedback carb is dying, along with all the electronics that go with it. When we first bought it it would get 12-13 mpg, but now it is closer to 6-7 mpg and you can smell the unburned fuel coming out the tailpipe. We tired new plug wires and rotor cap, cleaned the carb and re-calibrated it, but I think all the cleaning did was expose a host of problems we never knew we had. Based on your recommendation I'm going with the QF 450 slayer. Black would be nice but I can't justify spending an extra $40 for something no one will see.

    Thanks for your time and advice.
