Ford changed to roller cams in mid 1985 for cars, around 86-87 for trucks. Any block made 85 and later has provisions for the "spyder" for the roller lifters, but could still use the standard flat cam. 89 should be a roller cam, but who knows what was changed on it since it was new. Only way to tell for sure is pull the intake and look.

Thanks. I will check it out. I have no room for it inside for the winter but it is next to my barn so I plan on doing a few things to it. If I pull the intake I will want to go carb at that point. I am going to start a thread on the small block ford so we don't hijack this one. Jim
