Question 1967 rebuild?????????????

I've got a 67 short step side w/ a 300 inline , never had much power, But I would like to rebuild it ,And I was wondering if any body had any suggestions on how to get more power out of this motor? I'm running the 3speed it came with its all origanal ,rebuilt trans about 6 years ago. Would like to put a automatic in it " what would fit?" and just drive it ,SHE has worked all her life "its time for her to have some fun" . Any links, advice, or just comments would be appreciated. "Unless its about my spelling" Thanks for reading; and if I'm in the wrong place, please point me in the right direction.

Re: 1967 rebuild?????????????

I t depends on what you want to d o with it and how much you want to spend on it. Anyway, you cou;ld do a port job on the heads and get a good cam. Also make sure youve got a decent exhaust and she gets enough air.

P.S Your spellings better then mine

Re: 1967 rebuild?????????????

well old 67 i am not sure where your truck fits in so i am saying this post is fine here !
also this thing is before my time but the 300 I6 is a real strong motor it just probably has seen better days.
thats a tough call on the dual exhaust because with some engines you will actually lose hp with little or no back pressure and that motor isnt real high dispacement.
things that are for certain are a good high flow air filter and deffinetly a bigger better cam and i would look to convert to a 2 barrel carb .
that would probably supply more air than the heads could flow anyway, stock heads are fairly restictive but you are talking about a 67 when they actually made a few hp from the factory.
compcams.com has a nice cam for fords and they have a 260 H grind that would work nice in your 300 the part number is 66-237-4 check it out on their site.
as for the tranny i am thinking they are the same bell housing as a small block V8 but dont take my word for that check it out elsewhere for sure.

Re: 1967 rebuild?????????????

Get a workshop manual, i think youd be able to get one for building 300s. That should give you a guide and lead you on your way.
