I've got an engine out of an '84 truck that my father bought before his
death. He was going to put it into one of his trucks. I remember him
telling me that it came out of a truck that had 70,000 miles on it.
Anyway, I don't really have a use for it and was thinking about selling
it, but I'm not sure what to ask. It is a complete engine with carb,
351 PI Crowns had the VV carb through 1991 model year, no CFI or EFI, or
4v carbs for some reason. I think one of the reasons they were carbed
so long was that a FI Police car would be disabled easily by banging
into it, shutting off the fuel pump.
Ahh yes, memories (bad ones) return. The cop cars got the VV and the trucks
4-V Holley. Both carbs were absolute turds with lots of problems. I won't sleep
tonight because of the recalled memories of driveability concerns in my early
days. ;) I had repressed those days. The motor itself was quite good IIRC. I
wondering why a CFI version never made it into the civillian CVs. There were
clearance issues with the Mustangs IIRC.
