Re: Nice local 427 Powered 65 F250
Did not say it was not worth it, just saying what it is. It is a top oiler, why? Cause side oiler was introduced in 1965, anything before is top oiler. A top oiler has oil passage under the cam oiling the top of engine before the bottom. A side oiler has oil passage that run on side oiling the crank and bearings first. Different is a top oiler will stand around 5500 rpms where a side oiler is on up there, a stronger engine.
As well a low riser cause it has the 6090-H heads , low risers, also heads came on some 390s. A low riser will accept a intake to match which the level on top of intake is all flat for the carbs. A 406 3 duce intake the back carb sits high, mid sits lower and front even lower like stair steps. All in all still a good deal. I think that truck if it runs is a fair price. Reason not sold though is it is a top oiler.
If it was mine I would pull the engine, sell seperate. Sell the trans. Sell the intake and carbs seperate. Sorty headers seperate and last through another engine and tranny in and sell that. Make more and I think I am correct in the above.
