The truck has no stickers on the inside of the doors. I'm also going to have to find the carb cover and get the smog system running again.

I've had a hard time finding the Air Cleaner assembly for these Carb'd 300's, they were made a certain way to fit properly, I've seen tiny air cleaner's(like they use on V8's with the aftermarket filters) used on them, here's a pic of my 300 in my old 86 for reference of the air cleaner:

Here is the 302 in that old 85 after I replaced the valve cover's and the gaskets:



Notice the kickdown? It had a vac line somewhere in that jumble of @#$^ that went to the AOD.

That was a weird truck all around, had the TFI-IV ignition system(notice the rotor bug) and had a carburetor with Variable Venturi's, also had the coil packs on the valve covers.

So I guess i should find a AOD then. How would I know what type rear end I have, and what type would be best with the AOD?

9" had a removable Third Member/Pumpkin/Center(whatever you wanna call it) that looked like so:



The only late 80's I know of that got 9" rears from the factory are the F150's and Bronco's that had the 351w/C6 combo.

A 3.08:1 would still be a good choice for highway driving with an AOD. I own a 90 4.9L with a M5OD stick with 3.55:1 rear gears and its wound pretty good at 70mph and get maybe 15 MPG hwy. There isn't much difference in the overdrives between an AOD and an M5OD.
AOD with 3.55:1 @70mph = 2020 rpm
AOD with 3.08:1 @70mph = 1760 rpm

Assuming your running factory 235/75/15 tires.



1994 F150 XLT ExCab SB 306, 4R70w, 8.8 3.55 open, MSD StreetFire coil, Taylor Siro Pro wires, MSD cap and rotor, 1.72 Roller Rockers, 2º cam advance w/ Cloyes Street True Roller timing set, Flat top Hyperutectic pistons, Flowtech Long Tube headers, Xpipe, High flow Magnaflow converters, Spintech XL Sportsman DIDO muffler.
