I thought I could go awhile without having a slanted vehicle; evidently not too long. Picked up this 1984 D100 Short-bed Custom with 833OD and 2WD. Engine appears to be a late 70s unit and the Lean-Burn has been *ahem* "deleted" be a previous owner. I've already installed an HEI conversion, a nice Carter BBS (to replace the 1945), adjusted valves and all that good stuff. It now runs very well, though I suspect the advance springs in the distributor are too heavy so it's a turd at RPM.

I've taken a few photos just for reference, and will be uploading more as time goes on. You can find themhere.

Future plans are to get a better torque-producing cam ground and installed, installing my custom intake/header assembly purchased from Andrew over a year ago. It will then get a 390 Holley 4bbl and dual 2" header pipes. Additional plans are to rid the truck of all the wiring for the lean-burn system and other items no longer needed. Other than that, it will be used as my daily driver and it may make a few trips down the track too, we shall see.

Anyways, good to be back (again)!

Sweet deal! Sounds just about like the twin to my 82 D150.

Welcome Back THOR,

Have fun with your next project!
