1978 J10 with a 343
I just purchased a 78 J10 Levis edition. decoded the vin and it should be a 401. crawled under the truck and checked casting on the block and found it to say 343. further research on the 343 it was not a production motor offered after 1969 so I could possibly have a 290hp V8 in this vs the 215 hp 410. Is this a good score.
343 is a good motor. The 401 is also. Iill bet the 343 is alot easier on fuel.
Of all the things Ive lost
The one I miss most is my mind
Its like a fart in a windstorm
It smells good but thats about it

Determined tonight that the timing is way out due to distributor not at the right angle. All the pics I have seen show the vacuum advance pointing towards power steering pump and the one on this truck is straight towards the radiator.
