    You could always put a narrowed nine inch in the back to add some power handling and also move the wheels inward. Love the slot mags, they really look good on it.

                I'm really getting a kick out of these videos! When my wife married her first husband (at age 14!) he had money and a collection of old cars. They had one of these, turquoise I think. They swapped the 'D' and the 'F' on the front. Whenever we saw one of these on the road she would call out "It's a Dorf!"
                Charming old truck, not bad for as old as it is.
                I'm about to start my own project "rustore" on a '98 Civic Sedan that's only been sitting for three years. I enjoy watching how you do it.

                  Suitable replacement would be 200ci or 250ci inline 6 (7mian bearing) used in the Mustang, and "newer' Falcons. A 4speed manual Trans would be as nice improvement.

                      Cool video Mustie1 I really enjoy listening to you narrate as you walk us through on what your doing. What was that round thing you used pliers to unscrew on the side of the Carb?

                                  I like that little pick up truck, reminds me of the Commer pick ups (UK) ! there’s an orange one if you google it !
                                  Can’t see the point of oversize tyres on this little economy truck.

                                    You might just have a keeper there Mustie. That would not take much to win trophies in original unrestored category of your local car shows. Just wash it and clean it real good then shoot the outside with clear coat to preserve it.

                                        Why do you not remove the engine completely and then you can fix it without having to work in a confined space...? No cherry picker?

                                          Watch roadkill on their econoline truck. The had overheating issues. Might have been self inflicted, but they do have some comments on stock cooling parts.

                                            This Econoline is definitely better than "He Hate Me" from Roadkill. But yeah, a 302 would make it so much cooler.

                                                        Mustie. You need to use 5000K fluorescent tubes to have the best light to film. You also need to make sure they have a high CRI rating. Above 85 is good

                                                            Stick with a straight six but a 300 ci with a Clifford intake and headers. I hear the 300 runs smoother than a 302. The 300 may use same engine perches?

It was an old service truck my dad retired and brought home, and I would sneak it out while he was at work during the day and drive it. Until he found out and I got my butt beat. LOL. Those things were so light in the rear, even those anemic sixes would light the back tires up. So I'm told, that is.... :)

I rebuilt one a few years ago and had the same issue with getting the fuel line started and leaking. Also, the two accelerator pump diaphragms are because the automatic trans version has 2, one gives an extra squirt when letting off the throttle to catch the rpm drop.
