Is that the original 351? They got Eco in 85/86 and that looks like a carb setup. Either way, looks nice. That TTB is a pain to align

Do yourself a favor now. look for a Dana 44 solid axle outta a 70s F150 or full size bronco and swap it in. TTB will be nothing but issues in a heavier truck like that.

But shes a clean looking rig. For some reason those trucks always looked the best jacked up with a chrome roll bar. I guess its an 80s thing?

Looks good, AFAIK 87 was the last year of carb and 88 was the first year of EFI. My 88 is EFI and the engine bay is WAY more packed than that lol!

Looks like a good solid truck. Hopefully the problem will be a simple fix like a seized caliper!

I meant efi. Stupid auto correct. 85 was the transition year, at least for the 302. I know ive typed it before and my bronk was efi.
