I run a Mallory Dual point and 600 ABF. This combo has worked out really well. If the Ford motor has some miles on it, check out the timing chain, specifically the drive gears. If the cam drive is nylon, replace it with a steel one. Mine was iffy at 30 k miles and jumped a couple of teeth. not a whole lot of fun if the truck is loaded with lumber.
Thanks I'm hopeing that my weight will stay down but she gets hevier every day. And I'll check that chain but i think it is a factory roller chain. The motor in my ranger was (or still is) a roller when I tore it down. This is the expolrer version of the gt40 already has a roller cam and good heads well as good as you get factory. I have decided to run the dual bugsprays on a Vintage speed adapter and probably a performer intake. The bug sprays are the 300cfm version so i'm glad i didnt try to run the 1600 dp off of them. I think I'll run an aod because foot well room is going to be a premium and i dont think a hand clutch (like on my John Deere) will work well on the street.
