Default 71 F600 Dump

I GOT ONE!!! lol Everything works, as usual with used stuff things could use loving, the cylinder bleeds by a little bit, couple welds needed in the bed, hood has a hole from a fan blade saying good bye?

Runs like a top, NEEEEEEDS brakes, hydraulic brakes and are spongy.

does it have 5 bolt valve covers if yes
that engine is more than likely a 361 or 391 a common engine for that F600 Industrial type Truck
if it dont have 5 tell me how many it does have
find the ID tag under the heat indicator bulb if its there and post back
if it anit there check the dip stick tube or a carb stud

Catmechanic07 would know

Catmechanic also drives a chevy...
But I love driving these trucks, alot of the ones we have on the farm are custom cabs around these years. Couple gas, couple diesel.

I count 5 bolts in the cover, 3 valley, 2 outside. Got a layer of dust and oil to clean to see that particular area better.

So if its 391/361, how to tell which of the 2? I haven't spotted a ID tag or indicator bulb. I'll have to take a few more pics and spray more hornets.

hopefully you can find that tag and it should be on that heat bulb
if the engine has'nt been changed and since those Trucks dont log many miles lets hope its stock
it could be a 330, 361 or 391; but I would guess the last 2
the block casting # number will be on the passenger side, lets hope it starts out with D1T
now the cylinder head casting number under the valve covers will likely match the block casting, so check there also to make sure things aint been swaped out


now we gotta figuer out for sure its one of the FT engines not to be confused with the FE
the motor mount holes for an FT = 4 , fo an FE = 3
if ya got 4 its a 361 or 391, I serious doubt its a 330
if ya cant find that tag the only way I know for sure to find out which one it is, is to measure the stroke and that aint hard to do
heres how ya do it:

crank the engine until number one cylinder, the forward-most cylinder on the passenger side, is at top dead center. Remove the spark plug and insert a wooden dowl into the cylinder until you hit the top of the piston. Make a mark on the dowl, using the valve cover lip as a reference. Remove the spark plug from the number four cylinder, the last one on the passenger side and make another mark on the dowel. Measure the difference with a caliper or machinists ruler; the stroke on the 391 cubic inch equals 3.97 inches. and the 361 = 3.50

if ya got the FT engine its got a strong bottom end with a forged crank a skirted pistons
my Dad would build these into race engines back when I was a kid, but he could'nt getem to hold up as long as them MoPar engines

hope this helps, my finger is tired now; been raining out sur wish it would go to Texas

I can't find this plate nor heat bulb lol. Been busy with bee issues, they're being aggressive and trying real hard to nest in that truck or one of the other vehicles/trailers and my outbuildings

I took a pic of the dash, gonna take one of motor and hunt for casting #



Oh should mention I picked up 2 7'x12 rough cut sheets of 3/16. And cut down my tractors 12.00-24 tire. Then fell out of truck bed w a gas can in my hand, that day sucked. I been busy I guess lol

whats the block casting number ? the 4th # is the engine code
if ya got a 2bbl we can rule out 391 they only came with 4bbl
and checking the stroke on the 330 & 361 wont work cauce they are both 3.50"; but the bore for 330 is 3.875", 361 is 4.05
