85 F250 351 auto engine fire
I just got a 85 F250 4x4 351 auto. The carb had a fuel leak at the inlet, the carb,dist,air cleaner,throttle cable,cruise cable and 1 A/C line are toast. I need to know the best way to fix this truck.
1. fact replacement carb $400.00 or can I just put a holley 600cfm on it?
2. fact dist or put an aftermarket
3. should I change to an aftermarket intake
I think a carb,intake and dist (aftermarket) would be alot cheaper then trying to buy factory replacements. One of my problems in buying parts other then factory ones is I don't know which 351ci I have.
Can anyone tell me which 351 I have (W or M ) I know it can't be a "C" at least I wouldn't think it would be one.
If aftermarket is the way to go which parts should I get (names+part #s) I want to fix the truck because it will make a great truck for someone, I have too many cars and trucks now.
Thanks for all the help to come!
