Thanks guys for the info. GABoy, I think I'll plan this project next time my Dad is in town, he's been a Marine Mechanic for 35 years.
Anyway, I will rebuild the bottom end, replace plugs (easier while it's out) and??? What else should or could I do to add power?
I don't want to do a full rebuild (at least I think I don't )
Would it be worth it to do full rebuild? Bore it out .30 over, add a slight CAM increase, polish the heads? anything else I can do to increase HP for a reasonable cost?
I think heads would be too expensive?
Anything else I should do while the motor is out? I want to keep the truck for about 5 more years. I pull a 4000lb camper a dozen times a year, other than that it's a daily driver to work.
PS, just moved to Nashville area, sure love the south...
