Torque is dependent upon two of those things. I fell in lover with this truck when I saw the first one in 2000 and bought it, had the truck in the paint booth with Katrina hit. The truck is in original un restored condition and runs strong. In this era, the engines were run out to 3,200 rpm for rated peak power. I believe the V6 weighs about 800 lbs, making for some tough steering. There were several versions of them. A carb kit was purchased and the carb rebuilt.
The possition of the rotor is where your number 1 is, go Clockwise to place the wires in the cor … rect order. The 305 v6 not sure what it is a run off of. I sold it because Washington State instituted the mandatory car insurance law that year and I couldn't justify insuring two cars. The 351's were available both as Magnums and small port head 351C engines up to 1972. It was a torque monster, but had broken valves and was anything but quick with that transmission. It did create a great smoke show. Toro-Flows were popular in this venue also for their low cost and high fuel economy.
But if your going to use that pickup for a run around town getter It will do just fine, those big V's have a sound totally their own, there not a race horse but will run all day, I think the truck is 3800 rpm on the door tag. I'll have to remember that one. General Motors has been outflanked by both Ram and Ford when it comes to diesel engines in half-ton pickup trucks. The number or the arrangement of cylinders does not matter. I thought he said it was a 327 but now I think I am remembering wrong. According to a I recently found, it appears those engines really like 4-bbl.
Too bad they just replace it with a similar product. To little lash causes the valves seats to erode. Fantastic sound especially when revved well above the 3000 mark. Would love to know more about it. The weight of passengers, cargo and options or accessories may reduce the amount you can tow.
Later, the 478 crank was used in the 351 to produce a 379 and the 401 with the 478 crank was a 432. He had this truck from late 1974 to fall of 1978. So what engine do you have? And that luxurious color-keyed arm-rest, on the interior. That number seems remarkably low when compared to the F-150, which can tow up to 11,400 pounds with its diesel. All orders placed outside of the United States must be paid by Wire Transfer. Get rid of the old carb and put on a new one and jet according to the altitiude you are at. For less than half that amount I bought a brand new 350 Targetmaster 350 and a 350 automatic complete with all accessories.
Crusader Marine, American Marine, Barr Marine Products and Daytona Marine offered converted V6 and V8 Toro- Flows. However, if you actually mean the 4. That engine will last a long time and does have lots of torque like everyone says. But as like so many more that seldom happens. But you should be able to help the gas mileage issue with proper iginition, timing, and jetting. Have they ever felt sunshine or rain? There's a simple upgrade to a two barrel Holley carb that allows better tuning. These V6 engines were very good but they were far from econimical.
Introduced in 1964, the Toro-Flow was the answer, but it had some baggage. However, we wouldn't expect drastic differences between the two when the American numbers come out. The 637 replaced the V12 in 1966. Two things that I have found wrong with the truck are bendix on the start is going and a rear wheel cylinder is leaking. The carb change sounds like a pretty good idea to me. The engine developed 375 ft lbs of torque at 1600 rpm. If restore is what you meant, then the decision is already made.
Bill Thanks, I'm willing to give just about anything a try! All things being equal, 6 big pistons with a long stroke will make more torque at a lower rpm than 8 smaller pistons with the shorter stroke of the conventional post-1949 American car V8. Usually when shifting into third-low. I learned to drive in this vehicle and have too many great memories to recount here, but fast forward to Oct 2016. He had a lot of helpful hints that I used to make that truck run better. The Toro-Flows did best in marine pleasure craft applications due to the relatively lowstress environments with unlimited cooling capacity. As far as being a gas hog.
That also explains the non-rotted out boards in the bed. Guy said it needed a tune up badly. And the timing chains where not worn out. Note also the combustion chamber in the piston, but unlike most direct-injected diesels the injector is canted. Didn't like to drive over 45 mph, but I could cruise 60 on the freeway if I had to. Definitely has a unique sound which is one of the most memorable aspects growing up going on joy rides with my grandfather and is a total joy to drive now as an adult.
