Gents, I have a 1962 Ford Ranch Wagon that I picked up 6 months ago. When I bought it, the motor had sat since 1983. While the motor ran, it burned oil at an alarming rate. So, I decided to open the motor up and see what was needed to help in this regard. After a thorough inspection, I made the decision to replace all the bearings, rings, oil pump, gaskets. I had to grind the crank and install 0.30 bearings, as there was some damage there. NOTE: i did not do any work to the heads, other than a simple cleanup. After the motor was put back together, I started tracking my gas mileage. With nearly 1000 miles on the engine, I am only getting 8 to 10 miles per gallon. At this time, that is a huge hit on my budget and ability to drive this thing. The motor runs great, idles well, has good throttle response. and burns no oil. Other info: The car runs the stock 3 speed manual, no overdrive. Stock rear end, I believe the ratio is 3:71 (I know its in the 3:70's, dont have the car with me) Stock 2 barrel ford carb. Running 215/75/15 tires. Basically, this car is completely stock. I feel as if it is properly tuned and runs well. The MPG number is killing me. Any usefull suggestions would be appreciated.
