I could tell my power was up. The old 318 was a car motor(internal balance) that had been used to replace the 318-3 truck motor ( external balance) using the external balance harmonic damper and flywheel on the internal balance engine. I could not feel it vibrate but it was pounding out the main and rod bearings. You could almost see the oil pressure move lower as you drove the truck. I used a 361,383 2-barrel carb from the late 50's or early 60's as there was no PVC port. I built a spacer plate for the PVC port. This carb. has a LP carb. on top of it. I could not tell any loss off power when running on LP. In fact the engine would start like a fuel injected engine on LP. With the truck in neutral just reach in an turn the key. no setting the choke or anything. It would start right up.
I have towed C-II gleaner combinds behind this truck on a tow bar.
