I think the larger engines did and I forgot to specify it had a 2-bbl
carb...Apparently it had a Holley when it was new, but someone stuck
this on there, and the truck seems to produce a fair bit of black
smoke and sound a bit flooded when it's revved, but the ***is wide
I'm not much of a Ford guy either...I've played with a Carter on an
older 318 and a few Quadrajets, but not much in the way of this
