My BIL used to fuss at us,, he could make the run to Norfolk,, with the same truck, hauling the same load,,I do feel sorry for you though, use to own an early 80' F700 dump flatbed with the 370-4V 5spd with 2spd rear and it was definitely lacking in the power department! Kept you pretty busy with the shifter to keep your speed up.
and he would only burn half of the number of gallons of gasoline that I did,,
I swear, he must have stopped and bought gas,, just to make a point,,
Really, he would never hardly push on the gas pedal,, he would let the truck almost coast up to speed,,
My nephew and I drove it,, there was one position for the gas pedal,, on the floor.
Let it up when you had to shift,, then back to the floor..
The engine even had a governor,, so, you could not over rev it...
