Hey im new to all this not even sure what motor is in the truck. Ive heard 235 and 250 its stock for all i know. Another question is the carb needs rebuilt stock again as far as i know. Should i rebuild it or upgrade to something else.

well only you can answer this

what do you want the truck for?

stock restoration ?

or same but with more power ?

how much you got to spend?

it will cost more to do to this engine that you could do for cheaper to a 350 etc engine and have more power for same money.

i would maye at the most put an RV cam in it and a remanufactured carb and maybe clean up the manifolds with some porting and polishing

mill the head down for some more compression

stall converter

make sure the axle is decent ratio such as 3.42 or 3.73

that would wake it up good anyways.

have fun!
