Picked up an 83 Bronco tonight. 300ci straight six, 6" Superlift, 4 speed manual. Runs pretty good and drives good for an old truck. No rust in the usual spots. Everything works and it passed emissions a month ago. I almost feel bad how much I got it for. Almost. Lol.

The only issue that's worrisome is that the pcv just goes to atmosphere and it smokes pretty darn good coming out of there. It has 147k miles on it. Thinking it's head rebuild time soon. It purrs down the road at 2000rpm and 55mph though. No smoke coming out the tail pipe.

That 300 will run forever like that, I have a friend that had a ford van with a 300 in it, bought it at 175K or so miles, put about 60K on it, and still ran the day he sold it. Had tremendous blow by and never missed a lick. Usually its the rings that cause blow by. If you do the cylinder head and dont do rings, your blow by will get worse.

Plugs didn't have any oil on them at all. I put a new pcv valve on and it doesn't smoke out the oil fill now.

Always nice when it is a cheap repair.
