1976 Ford B-500

Has a 291 industrial ford engine with a new process 435 four on the floor! We wont be going anywhere fast but who's in a hurry.
I still have some mechanical issues to work through before we go but here's what i have so far and kinda how far I went before I turned back. It runs great btw

don't let the pretty paint on top fool you. I still have to drop the oil pan and put a few more new seals in.

I think perhaps you have a 391 and not a 291.

I can't say that I have ever seen a Ford 291 engine.
