Hello,
Here is my old Ford. It makes 1,200 mile round trips between Texas and New Mexico. Not crazy about the 4.10 and non overdrive 4 speed on the freeway but it does the job getting a load moving. Crossing the desert these last three summers has me wondering why I still have all the parts to add air conditioning sitting on the shelf. I may get around to it some day. Depending on how heavy the load the 352 gets between 6.7 to 11 mpg at 65 mph. Haven't ran through a full tank in several years without pulling a trailer at some point.

Thank's for looking

I also have done away with the deadhead pressure regulator and filter rigged up on the front of the left head. Now it has M6676 Carter and 3/8" fuel lines. The LMC gas tank had a restriction at the flair so I had the gas tank opened up to 7/16" outlet. The Carter pump is for a F-600 with a 391. It has 3/8" in/out and a screw on filter.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeThank's for the complements. The air cleaner assembly is off a 1974 440 Dodge motorhome I hauled off. Those hoses are the air conditioning ducts from it. I kept the Thermoquad off the 440 but am running a 1977 Quadrajet at the moment.

Nice truck - I have a 1972 F-250 I use mostly on the farm, non-road use.

Question: Where did you get the air cleaner....did you run the two hoses to the grill or are they OEM.

Nice truck. Old work trucks have character and a story.
