Hello im james and im new here had a few questions about an engine swap i was considering. i Found a 1986 F-150 that i was looking to purchase and i talked to the guy and he didnt know much about what was wrong with it. He said the engine was weak but it runs and drives. Im not very smart when it comes to engines so now im here. Im thinking of buying the truck(its only $500) and putting a engine in it. im looking for something i could just drop put in it with out too much hassle and that is cost friendly. I was told it has a stock 302 in it now. would it be a better to put another stock engine in it or something else. someone told me i can put a 351 windsor in it and it would be better. i dont really know what i should do but i am on a budget. i am looking for something that has a decent amount of hp and torque. something i can still be able to tow a trailer with and be a daily driver. im just looking for opinions cuz like i said i dont really know anything about it. (my father in law is a mechanic and will be doing the swap) thanks!!
