Yeah it's an 8.2 V8 n/a. Somehow Detroit got their new 4 stroke to sound just like their 2 stroke just louder. (What I thought when I 1st worked on one back in the 80s).

Want to know the fun part about those Ford chassis of that area. Look on the lower right side of the engine and the left side. Yup that's right 2 power steering/hydraulic pressure pumps. One for the steering and one for the Lucus/ Girling rear brakes.

Does make it easier to run it off a cliff.
lmao, you’re right!

I dig that truck, granted it needs some major updating, get rid of that damn Detroit and put some real power under the hood, put a 10 speed or something in it, but I’d pimp the shit out of that thing.

Guess I still have too many nightmares working on 80s B and F series medium dutys
I’ve worked on a few, not many but I can understand what you’re saying. I like the platform, not the shit they bolted on to it. A lot of that medium duty stuff is just cobbled up garbage in my opinion.
