it's ford tech too! i just don't think it's worthy of the garage. sorry. i need help tho. this dude asked me to rebuild his 95 ford BB. it's been sitting in his back yard for a year since the PS pump apparently caught on fire and burned the intake. he doesn't have the computer for it and wants to put it into his 85 van. my questions: is it possible to make it run w/ out the computer (i.e. injection timing and whatnot). could a carb be put on it instead so that i could essentially bypass the computer stuff. (sorry, don't know the engine size or anything more than it being a 95 ford bb.) how should i charge if i do this? i imagine he'll want me to install it too. I don't want to charge too much, b/c then my work may not be consistent w/ my pricing, but this may be much more work than i'd imagined. should i do this? i could see problems rising out of the fact that i may have trouble getting it to run b/c of the missing parts which i don't know are missing yet (i.e. any electronics). anyone got any great advice? maybe i'm finding my own answer writing this that it may not be a good idea. he says he doesn't want any machining done - he just wants it to run. so i don't know if it even needs to be taken apart. hmmm. someone tell me what to do.
