Default Toyota 3F... Any good?

Hi guys, Looking at an 80 series with the Petrol 3F motor... Just curious to know whether there any known problems with this motor or anything in particular to look for in a second hand 3F... I know it would probally be thirsty... so thank god its on LPG. Thanks in advance!

nothing wrong with a 3F motor mate they are strong your going to set any land speed records with it but the pull hard
give it a snorkel good air filter and a exaust so it can breath they go much better
i was going to chev my 60 again but it all got to hard i have just bought a 3F to put in mine on gas they arent to heavy on the pocket

It would want to be real cheap.
Nothing wrong with the early 80s and 3f but you would want to pay alot less because a later 80 with the brake upgrade and 4.5 is just soooo much better

ahhh k... i am still deciding on whether to keep my 3f and rebuild it on gas, turn it into a 3F-E injected unit, put in a 3.8ltr ecotec or a 1fzfe 4.5ltr 6. decision decisions... oh and alot of saving required. The good thing about the 3f is that it does pull well but the downsides are its thirsty and the carby floods on steep uphill climbs but it wont do that when running on gas. They are easy to work on aswell which is a bonus
