Deleted. I saw I already posted in this tread.Just found this thread. Here is a pic of me with the truck from 1981. I bought this 77 F150 for my construction job.
300 CID 6 cylinder and a three on the tree. 2wd, no big deal as I worked in DC area.
I once noticed the gas mileage dropped, but the only symptom was rough idle when cold. The carb was loose, 2 of 3 attachment nuts were missing and the last one was loose. It was reliable.
