but I cant figure this out. This truck I bought for $400 on Friday... The guy said the motor was bad (just your average 350). He said water (coolant) was pouring out the drivers side exaust, and a valve was sticking, and he had #6 plug wire off so it would run without backfiring so much. It sat for 2 years. Then I got it. Towed it home. 2 plugs looked wet. I changed the carb and plugs. It runs, doesnt backfire, doesnt smoke, and theres no hint of it burning coolant (all plugs dry and burning perfectly). The thing couldnt have fixed itself. It seems to run ok considering the gas is 2 years old. I think I'm going to license it and start driving it. It also had a gas leak down by the switchover valve. Today it stopped leaking. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif Strange, but in a good way at least.
