My neighbor has a '66 FJ40 with the original F engine. There's a serious rod knock and he's hoping to find a solid running F block we can swap in. If anybody has a lead on one, let me know.

This is the early F with the round intake ports on the head and single barrel carb.

Still looking for an early corner window as well. This is the smaller version with the two piece weather strip.

Thanks! :thumb:

solid running F135? :p: Would you like some hens teeth as well?

I have a block that might have parts in it. The F135 engine that is in the black LV may have some life in it.

Hi Martin,

I have an F from '71 that I am going to be pulling out of my truck soon (truck is a 76 & PO put in a supposedly rebuilt 71 F when he blew up the original). I am going back to a 2f when I get it finished, so the F will be coming out. At the moment he could hear it run. I don't know if that will work or if he really wants one from around '66

Would it include the manifolds and carb assembly? If so, he might be interested. The main reason he's looking for an early F block is because he already has a good carb and intake/exhaust that could be used. Let me know when you might be pulling it. :thumb:

exactly. If his doesn't run i'd bag the whole f engine thing and go straight to a 2f.

Yeah, I was even starting to think of suggesting a V8 swap if nothing else. There are a lot of good parts on the F that could still be used from his, but a solid, complete 2F would be my first choice too.
