    1967 f250

    Not a 4x4 build..id love to have a 4x4 in this chassis but this isnt it or the time.

    Back story, its my dads first truck he bought it in 1975 and drove it until 1989. And then it sat and sat and sat. In 96 he tried to start it before we moved and it caught on fire.

    in 2007 i tried to start it and the same thing happened.

    In december i decided to do something with it, i bought a ebay chinacom carb and threw it on. It fired right up after correcting the plug wires being one pin off all the way around.

    My goal is drive it by july 4th

    It way easier for me to spend money on something that runs.

    so far ive installed a master as the old one was rusted through. Had to put on a water pump pulley as i lost..the other one. bought wheels to replace the 16.5s installed treadwrights that i had laying around.

    Then i came across a issue, the bypass tube from the water pump to the intake was rusted completely through. I was gonna drill and tap it in pipe to put a brass fitting in but upon further inspection i didnt have enough material left in the intake to tap. so i bought a stock boat anchor intake off ebay. Im hoping to install that this weekend, do freeze plugs and set the idle.

    Im very busy so i get like half a day a week to mess with this, and ive set myself a budget im trying stick to. Im in for like 600 bucks right now..

    Im expecting to be on the road mid june.

    In the fall id like to install a 4 barrel intake and a holley sniper. If budget allows a engine rebuild or a rebuild and no upgrades.

    In between now and then after it moves ill be doing floor pans and re doing the wiring etc

      I did not weld that brake rod..my dad did when he was in HS and yea i did just reinstlal it until i can find another one. Intake photo is because the coolant bypass on my intake is rusted really bad and for 40 bucks i didnt need to drill and tap mine...

        Awesome truck, I love them. What FE motor is it? 352/360/390 etc? If you decide to rebuild the FE they can make some awesome power but there are some simple mods you might want to do. If you go down that path let me know and I have pics of doing one myself (oil drain back, oil restriction etc)

              352, although my dad had it rebuilt in the mid 80s so 352 + .30??
              im gonna run it this summer and start stockpiling parts Thinking of doing a stroker..or maybe a turbo. Roots would be cool but quite expensive

              it also has a np435 and i want to try going up more speeds zf5/6 or a t56 something like that. Hell maybe a browny box if i can find one.

              Edit: i bought a 429/c6 off my coworker that i havent picked up yet...i looked at swapping that in but it felt...dirty.. He also has a 68 f100 that i may buy off him and take the reins off..swap in a front axle drop a big block in it and put a chrome roll bar in it with pretty lady mudflaps...IDK really

              I saw your other thread on PBB i appreciate it but these wheels are only for this summer. Id like to put a set of alloys on maybe a 10 hole..

              Plus your in NH and im in OK that shipping not cheap

                So I was planning on working on the truck this weekend I figured I could do it faster and maybe have it road ready by end of day.

                So first I'm doing the intake last bolt on driverside it seems like its rounded off so I break out the needler and its actually broke off but the rebuilder was nice enough to weld it to the intake.

                So I torched the weld off and move on to removing the rocker assembly and pulling pushrods..

                Number 1 intake push rod is bent...and nearly wore through.. so I check them all and ive got 6 bent push rods.

                So I break out the borescop a x check the faces of my pistons...#1 , had some damage. Yay

                So I start towards pulling the engine...luckily the shift er base screws were already rounded out so i moved to separate engine and trans in chassis.

                Header down pipe bolts are so fuck I death wheel 3 off and torch the last one. Pull the heads, there is some piston valve kissing but it might be run able. Hole 7 has a ring on top of the piston.

                also there is a valve in the driverside exhaust that was rusted shut, which might explain it never idling.

                I stopped pulling the engine as I dont have parts yet and I was passed. Moving the expected drive date to christmas...

                    I'd like to know too.. personally, i would take the opportunity to stuff a crate motor in it and go all out on a resto-mod

                      I'm not surnot could do a cheap rebuild for about a grand. I could bore and stroke it for 2 grand add in heads and intake and we at 3500.00

                      I coild stick a 429 in it but i have no trans

                      Same with a 400m

                      Briefly thought about a rb25 or a 12v..
                      ​​​​12vmaybe even a barra.

                      There's even 2 7.3 psd on the rack at work and a old v8 cat

                      I'll build some options on paper and make a decision.

                        so i believe im going to stick with the 352 my other options have to many hang ups..mainly being transmission. Again im cheap

                        1k dollar rebuild or 1900 dollar stroker kit..thats my tear. Keep the cylinder heads for now..switch to 4 barrel intake and swap a new carb on it.

                          Spend the extra money to stroke it if you can. Just my opinion.

                            Thats what im planning on, itll bump it up to 440ci
                            Keep stock heads and install a cam. I do want to eventually turbo it so i need to set down a find a good middle ground with good power on a middle ground compression ratio.

                            Honestly this thread is gonna sit a little bit, ive got some medical stuff to deal with here in july that i need some extra scratch for. So engine will wait, some suspension stuff is gonna happen. Looking at buying booger (grendel) front suspension so i can have front disk brakes (rear are super easy, its a dana 60)

                              I think all fords of that vintage have the push rod welded like that. The fuckers used like 14 different kinds with no rhyme or reason to it, so you get pissed off trying to find the right one and just make what the parts man give you work. On my dentside they didn’t even cut the wrong end off the booster, they just welded the old one on beside it
