PARTS TRUCK

Well I went and looked at it tonight and I am going to buy it tommorow and bring it home it is a 84 ford bronco with a 351w but it didnt come stock with it so I said screw it and I am going to buy it anyway the guy said he had it running but it seemed weak to him I am going to rebuild anyway the only thing is that it has headers on it so I guess I will be looking for a set of stock manifolds. More to follow on hte parts for sale section

Re: PARTS TRUCK

I have been on this forum for awhile now and there has been a lenghty debate on headers verse stock manifolds. the headers according to the debate hurt low end toque and that is what i am tring to build in my motor. I vary never go over 4000 rpms in my bronco and rarely go over 3500 rpms so My goal is to build my motor to produce as much of its pwr that it can below 3500 rpm. Besides they produce alot of engine compartment heat

Re: PARTS TRUCK

Well I picked it up tonight and I think I really scored for $500. Ok here is the list so far. It has a roll bar (sweet), factory tach, bucket sets and cloth back set, of course the 351w. The tranny and transfer case are still unknown and a 8.8 rear end gear ratio unknown I am going to use the tach, roll bar, seats, rear bumper, motor and front axle and other front drive line parts so the rest is for sale. anyone want anything let me know and we can work something out. Oh yeah I almost forgot about the headers and aluminum intake so we will see what kind of condition the motor is in If all it needs is a standard rebuild I think I made out like a fat cat...what do you all think. I will post pics in a little while

Re: PARTS TRUCK

The same night you talked about a parts truck, a guy at work told me about his 85 F250 XLT 4x4 351w C6. He wants $1500. The next day you had already posted about the Bronco. Oh well...
