    Nice truck. Good Questions. Thanks for posting pics.

    I also have thought about replacing the main fuseblock under the dash. That one odd small fuse was a little hard to find.
    I pulled mine gently, and found it clean, dry, and not really in need of attention. So I shot the back with WD-40, cleaned up the terminals a bit with a blade, replaced the fuses, and I still use it.

    Your observation about the complexity back there rings true, but I think it was more of a choice about 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'.
    Also, I have 20 fuses elsewhere, and the headlight load is entirely off the dash now.
    If you do replace that fuseblock, I'd be interested in what you have to do. I've got the terminal strips and new fuse clusters for the job, but haven't put any brain-power in it yet. You experience would be valuable.

    I believe the 240 was rated at 150hp in 69. I think the same engine was rated at 121hp in 72 due to a change in how they were tested( gross vs. net hp ) .

    I have heads but I would have to disassemble one and then have it hot tanked & mag'd. If it checked out the price would be $275.00 + whatever shipping/freight would cost ( not cheap ) .

    I'm glad to hear you are ok. That is a scary situation out there. Things like that really put things in perspective. Everyone out there affected by the fire will be in my thoughts.
