    from the owner...........

    I went and pulled a friends 1 ton 4x4 Chevy dually out of some mud Sunday and on the way home the old F passed away...

    It was a kick yankin on that Chevy in the mud.

    But sucked at the car wash at 10pm for a hour....

    that would be a 2f ...oil filter position :)

    an f or a 74 f would never do that :)

    Sure looks like a 74 F engine to me...





    That is pretty ugly there Butch...


    Did anything else get tore up?


    You going to put a crank in from the bottom? ;)

    It's an LSLC member's truck, he is doing a TBI/SBC conversion...... I know nothing else, doubt if he is even tearing anything else down on it. the link to the thread is https://forum.ih8mud.com/showthread.php?t=132750

    I did not know that, I tore down a 76 but unknown production date, it had the later style......It is a 74 F motor though.
