The carb Mike has is stamped E41. I was trying to find out on SOR if it was Federal or Cali but the carbs look the same. Going off memory, the hood lable is black with white letters.

11/75-7/76 Federal
1/76-7/76 California
8/76-8/77 Federal

Mike, that carb code doesn't make sense. Needs to have a number, then a letter, then 1 or 2 numbers. Ex: 8 L 12 (mine).

The cali carbs are certainly different for some of those model years listed than the Federal carbs. If simps can post a pic I'm sure we could identify it.

Hmmm...and I don't have a carb fan. I guess the fan could have been added later.

The 'trailer full of stuff' included a '75 missing its front axle ...
it had a 'complete' engine and 4speed etc.

We barely even looked at the '75 before driving off with the 76 on the trailer...didn't much care, other than it had a builder if we needed it. Might be able to salvage some more stuff off of it later...

It also came with a block, head, crank, pan, possibly 6 pistons and rods. Mike pulled the serial numbers off of block and head and determined the block is a 2F Nov 2, 1976 vintage and the head casting is Oct 31, 1976.

the block, and crank have been machined (but likely will need to be done again, they were left out in the weather and got a bit of rust)

so that's probably next step... block, head, crank, internals, off to machine shop, pull the 4spd and flywheel/clutch/bellhousing off the '75 for re-use and start from there.

Wow, that block and head almost match my '77 perfectly! Don't happen to have a carb from that same engine do you?

Nice truck! Good idea on sticking with a 2F - that truck deserves it. Consider a later 2F from an FJ60 - might be cheaper than a rebuild, and many of those later 2Fs are totally viable even with most of 200K on them.
