Useful washer drain plug info: The washer for the gearbox oil drain and engine are the same size M18 x 24mm x 1.5mm You can order these very cheaply from eBay. In the UK you can get about 10 for £3
To much talking
Very true. Its hard to find 80 series videos. I do 0 to 60 in less than 10s. Adjust the kickdown cable like u did here Advance the distributor Take out the clutch fan and replace with spal fans that's got high cfm (thank me later) You could also go the extra mile and put a fuel vapour container connected to a vacuum line to supply fuel vapour for extra power. Do these and watch ur truck get zippy. I do 0 to 60 in less than 10s and not even trying hard to push the engine above 3000rpm. With these mods I can go 5200rpm. Although I'm scared to push the limits or force power out the engine so I just go with normal auto gear switching at 1700rpm. Just try the experiment of stock fan to electrical fan swap then advance timing a bit you'll be surprised. You can also tune up to get amazing fuel economy. Adjusting your Air flow meter to lean. I go 17 to 18 mpgs at amazing speed. The leaning out of fuel is compensated with my vaporizer mod. Do a search on vapourkid or search on cars running on fuel vapour to get an idea The 3fe is a very easy to work on engine.
