Welcome to Project F-250 Part 10 - Making the Old Engine New Again! This is part 10 in our Not a High Boy series where we're taking a 1986 Ford F-250 4x4 (that should have been a High Boy but isn’t because Ford stopped making High Boys in 1977) and bringing it back to life. The truck is still awesome! It’s in pretty bad shape and we're bringing it back to life! It's got a blown motor, tons of rust and we've never seen it move under its own power. It's quite the restoration project! But we think it'll be worth the effort because, although we never like to see a good truck go to the junkyard, this truck has a lot of really cool things about it. It's a heavy-duty, it's four-wheel drive and it's the first year Ford offered fuel injection! That's right, it's got a 5.0 V8, just like the Mustangs! In today's video we FINALLY get the engine cleaned up and painted. Yes, we absolutely could have bought new parts for way less than the time we have in these, but those parts wouldn't be original and there's something just super cool about keeping as many of the non-wear original parts as possible. So join us for some fun and mischief as we resurrect the original heads and the new-to-us block on our Project F-250 Not A High Boy!
