Re: Got me a new truck!

i want to say pre 86 used the 1/4 inch oil pump drive rod, 87-newer uses the 5/16 drive rod.

The firing order should be embossed on the intake, between the dist and carb, is your dist bad?

And if memory serves me, a distributor from any 289 or 302 will fit the hole, but I think they are by themselves in that respect.

I just counted the plugs on top of the dizzy, its the 1-5-X firing order, doesn't match the 351.

I’m not up on California emissions stuff but I don’t see how putting a “ cleaner” fuel system on the truck would be a no no . Course anything is possible . Wonder if it would be worth retrofitting a factory EFI setup into the truck .

An EFI kit would definitely run cleaner, but I have to change intake manifold, (which no one makes a CARB approved manifold), and the EFI kits are not CARB approved either, and that's all that matters.

Re: Got me a new truck!

Just curious, what if you title/license it as an antique? Would that exempt you from the emissions stuff?

Re: Got me a new truck!

83 last year for the flat tappet, also has old firing order. also least amount of horse power. is a tough motor, but hard on fuel. Heads are junk J U N K junk
small oil driveshaft, and it will twist off if you over rev it

Roller cam starts in 84. EFI in trucks 5.0 starts in 85 5.8 in 87 pickups, 89 vans

My suggestion , find a 95'97 1/2 sploder, yank the 5.0, stick it in there, put the smog on it to appear to work, and have some fun
The 95 sploder is a gt40 right out of the box. if you get one for a manual trans, you can run the AOD, which is the better trans, you just have to adjust the tv cable, and it will do what you need it to do without a stand alone controller.

I can help with making the stock motor better, but it's only a matter of time before it burns a valve, or cracks a valve seat. Did I mention the smog heads on there are JUNK?

That answer for Kalifornikate is no


Emissions testing starts in 1978 year, no matter the tag.

Ok, that's a bummer, I don't engage in californication so didn't know, but thought it might be a loophole.

Maybe it needs one of the new baby powerstrokes from a 1/2 ton grafted in??

Re: Got me a new truck!

Not sure how kalisilly works. When md was still being stupid I put a 85 small block in a 80 mustang. They failed it big time.
It passed tail pipe sniff test
Didnt pass visual inspection because it didnt have an AIR pump.

Pretty sure only diesel he could put in would be a 6.9 idi.
I think that came out late 84, so probably no on that too
