What intake and 4 barrel carb works, for a mild street ride, in a 1964 f-250 w/ a 292 cid.?
The truck is original, all there and very sound (except for the bed). I am rebuilding it as a "hobby" work truck w/ a flat bed. I will drive it 3 or 4 days a week on the road doing odd jobs and moving kids around. I dod not want a stump jumper but I do want it to move "smartly Down the Road". Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks for your time and effort, Scott

I dont think you are going to gain that much from a 4bbl carb swap, maybe 5-10hp, not enough to really notice any difference. You would be better off spending the time and money on tuning the engine. Maybe some hotter plugs, good plug wires, timing. Depending upon your experience level, you could lash the valves (adjust rockers). Rebuilt and jet the carb which is on the motor now. With all these properly tuned you will probably gain as much, if not more hp than replacing your 2bbl, and for allot less money!

By the way, the stock HP of your engine was 160HP at 4000rpm's.

I agree, you will get just as much out of tuning. If you want to track down an intake here are your numbers.

Part Number: B7T9425A
Found on the following applications: 1957-1963 Ford Tucks, School Bus500, F500, C550, School Bus600, F600, C600, School Bus700, Tilt Cab700, Conventional 700, Tanden 700 Series Trucks.

Good Luck!

I have a 292 motor. I put a 1957 ford intake on. So I would not have to use the adapter and a edlebrook 600 4 barrel it made a big difference. The 57 intake is a hard item to find. But I do have an extra hahahaha
