Ordered the carburetor rebuild kit. Along with the power steering pump rebuild kit.

The upgraded front axle universal joints should be here this week. I wanted to go that route so I know I'm not going to lose 4x4 this winter.

I tested out the 4x4. The transfer case sounds good. I don't think it has been put into 4x4 much during it's life. The front diff was low. I didn't really care for that to much but I don't think any damage has been done.


On another note. I have found out that from '72 - '87 Ford retarded the timing on the 460 by 4* to pass emissions. So there are timing sets refereed to as "straight up" which the timing is set to 0*. So that's a nice bump in HP/TQ along with some MPG.

I think I'm going to go with a Comp Cams Magnum double roller timing gear set. Nothing better than making some HP/TQ/MPG for $65.
