    So I removed my carb yesterday to send to Jim C. and I looked into my intake manifold and it has a layer of black crud covering inside. I would guess that maybe the exhaust manifold might be like this but not the intake. Is this normal? ???

    I would perform a compression check, and verify the condition of engine internals, and go from there. Significant blow by can create this condition in your intake...

    I will check the compression. Would it be even worth it to rebuild my engine? I was thinking that the 2F block with a 3FE head sounded like a cool idea.

    Sounds like a great set up...get it done, take a lot of pics, and do a write up.

    Good luck!
