Very cool video! Yes, I want the HP's I can get along with the adjustments just magically happening as I change altitude. Plus the heat I get off of the 460 likes to boil that stinking alcohol gas, so a real pressure system to fix my issues. I mean my trucks issues, there is no fixing me.
New blower motor in an A/C truck today. What a pain! Still working my way back out, will be changing out the vac lines, dash lights, repair or replace vent ducts, heater core (done), dash prep'd for paint, anything else I should consider? Dont really want to pull the dash out again anytime soon.
Might also want to consider changing the heater core while you're in there. Like you said, you only want to do that once! Brass heater cores are hard to find, but they are still available. Most of them are aluminum anymore.
By the way love your truck Doug. Looks to be very similar to mine other than standard cab. racetrack molding tail gate trim, power slider etc. the same. Also looks like you have a bit of a lift. I went with skyjacker 4 inch, what is yours? Originally I just used F350 springs on the front end to squeeze 35s in, but did not have enough room to turn from stop to stop's with chains on, which is a no-no in Oregon.
Frame off restoration? That is a big endeavor! I've been a year doing nothing but chasing drip rail rust, dents here and there, prepping for paint etc. today is canopy day, got a couple factory ford canopies going to pick the better and work it up for paint before the camping season.
