View Full Version : 73 40 F engine, drivetrain and PTO winch

Early this year the pilot bearing froze up on the old girl and I've decided to make the move to a V8. So, I will have the Jim C modified carb, header, PTO winch, 3 spd, trans, along with an otherwise great running F engine (except a really loud squeal) up for grabs soon. I won't be doing the swap right away so if you need any of the above but want to see or hear them run, let me know.

V8 for a pilot bearing?

Art Hog is looking for a PTO winch for his '68.

I'm interested in the PTO for sure. Let me know if Terry passes on it.

Lol Matt! I have been unhappy with the F power for awhile and have been wanting to do this conversion anyway. My last 40 spoiled me I guess. Now that the truck is about done, I can move on to this project.
I am 99% sure I'm not going to be able to use the PTO winch with the larger block. I believe the tcase will have to go with it for the output and floor shifter. I will know more when I get it apart.

Hmmmm, anyone headed to SLC? I've got a '73 FJ40 that needs a motor/trans.
