69 F100 Engine Trouble maybe carb???
I've recientally bought my self a new toy, as my gf calls it, in all honestly I stole it, well sorta. It's a 1969 F100 that was placed on a 74 frame, it's been lifted 6 to 8 inches, and 36in mud tires, roll bars and one beefy brush guard. Oh and it has ZERO rust, in Minnesota that is a rare thing for such an older vehicle. The best thing about it is that I only paied 500 bucks for it, so it was a steal. Only bad part is the ugly poop color. And some minor fixes.
I'm sure that if I searched enough I'd find every answer to any quesiton that I could muster up, but so far the search enging isn't helping much so here it goes...
The problem is that it has no balls. The 351m in it has had a lot of work done, but no balls. She idles fine and I can rev it up and everyting but as soon as I put it in drive and step on the gas, she no wanna go, it almost seems that it is flooding it self out. It's the stock carb and I'm sure that most of you guys will tell me to ditch it, but I figure why pay the cash if it is an easy fix. I know about as much about engines as an average guy, but when it comes to trouble shooting, it's like asking my grandfather to program the VCR. So I was wondering if anyone had any ideas.
