I live in Northern New Mexico. The truck was located outside of Cortez, Colorado. I got it home and found only the carb, coil, alternator, battery and solenoid were missing. I went to the local parts store to get what was missing that I didn't already have on hand and put all the parts on and the only thing I could get to work was the dome light. Several days of tinkering didn't get me any further. The wiring harness had been hacked so many times it was nearly impossible to trace the wiring, some of which was severely burned. I had a spare untouched harness in the garage from another 69 F250 and spent an afternoon swapping out the harness and got it running. I didn't notice any strange engine noises or smoke so it looks like a good foundation to start with.
