So here’s something I’ve been working on. I bought my ‘78 F150 XLT Ranger from the guy who drove it off the lot. It was all original with 152,xxx and even had the original floor mats and service records. It sat for 6 years until I saw it and offered the guy $1,000 and away I went. Surprisingly, all I had to do to get it running with a new battery, fresh gas, and alittle down the carb and on the 5th or 6th try it bombed right off. It was my dream to get one of these and for less than 1100 bucks a dream came true. I changed all the fluids and filters since they had sat there for so long and drove it for awhile until I had the great idea to put a diesel in it. It was powered by the OEM (numbers matching) 400 paired with a C6 Trans and the NP205 TFC. It got about 10 or 11 MPG and was completely untouched. Even had the OEM oil bath air cleaner on it. Attached are pics of what it looked like when I first got it. I changed the oil bath for a paper due to the fact that An old guy said if it backfired than oil would go all over the engine bay. More continued on next post.
