    Is the guy saying that the engine is factory carbed or is he saying the truck is factory carbed? Or is he calling the tbi a carb? Lets see a link.

    or...it's an export model that someone brought back. 350's in the Mid East didn't get TBI when we did in '87.

    and while typing this post the guy mailed me back saying he's never looked under the hood of it befor /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif and that someone else wrote the ad, hes just answering the questions..well looks to me like there both a couple of dingle berries..

    Yeah, well he's from Indiana...better just stay away from that truck /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    OH look at this:

    <font color="red">On Dec-27-03 at 10:01:35 PST, seller added the following information:

    I'm sorry I made a mistake when talking about this truck. It is fuel injected and does not run on carbs. Sorry for any problems this may have caused.</font>
