Welcome to the forum.

I had a work truck that was a 4-spd, 440 1T flatbed. Loved that truck. Had to give it back when they laid everyone off.

I had a big block swap in my 1977 Ramcharger it rocked! I am wanting to do the same thing but more power in my 1991 W150 when I can figure out a way to register it in the next county since we still have to get smog here in the county I live in. Want to do a 440 magnum 70s spec motor in it.

Resistance is not futile, it is voltage divided by current.
