That could actually be a 292 or 312 out of a car. On the trucks, the thermostat housing outlet pointed straight, instead of going off to the left, and the exhaust on the driver's side would cross over to the passenger side

The exhaust manifolds have been changed . The crossover pipe is gone .

iv got 292 in a 1962 unibody. people go crazy over how the left exhaust crosses over the front of the engine into the right manifold. It dose a very good job of heating up the fuel line but I love it, Its defiantly gets attention at shows

This cold stuff is exactly why I’ll never live up north. I’m down here in Florida and I can’t handle the winter we had. We had our coldest winter in a long time and it got down to the 30s.... I couldn’t handle the 30s let alone single digits.

Good job or whatever! But when you spin the engine to check if it seized I recommend you check that in the running direction. Its not good for the lifters and oil pressure to turn the motor backwards!

You should do a revival on the vw looking car over to the side of the truck. You could pretty easily sell it if you got it running because people love those old cars. Also a good opportunity to expand viewer base with classic euro cars.

I never understand why people with a winch trailer or dump trailers don't wire in a charging system connection. All you need is a disconnect and it's a good idea to add some isolator switches for extra safety. $100 project to eliminate a headache.

As a Texan we were complaining because there were many people without power and we were on a boil water alert. We're not used to cold weather haha, that being said I was not born here, but it was indeed very cold, I believe at one point it got down to -12 or a little colder even. God bless and this was an awesome video! Subscribed.

You are correct that our infrastructure is just not set up to handle this kind of cold. Officially, what caused the power outages was that, first, the windmills started freezing and the solar panels don't work (those two furnish 25% of our power) when covered with snow and ice so that put more load on the generating stations which were already stressed by the increase in power demand. They started doing rolling blackouts which blacked out the Permian Basin which is where most of the natural gas comes from so many of the gas fired generating stations shut down. This exposed a basic problem in energy management. So we have all learned a lesson in preparedness.

Man that's a nice solid old truck! Sucks that someone cut the grill for whatever reason - spare tire carrier? Those wheels are nice, and are the older version without trim rings. I'd say that Ford used those from the mid 1970s until perhaps the mid 1980s when they painted the wheels argent/gray and added the trim rings, and went to the chrome center caps. The ones which take the trim rings have an indentation/groove around where the 'spokes' meet the rim, which accepts the trim ring. The old ones don't have that groove, and came in white, and when used on certain Free Wheeling models, they were painted yellow! I have a later wagon wheel (missing its trim ring) for a spare for my 1977 F150, and I have a set of Ford slotted mags with those same black centers waiting to go on.
