    i personally like the ford inline six 300cc.i have had several trucks with that motor over the years and they will pull whatever a small v8 will with better gas mileage.i still have a 78 ford f250 flatbed with a beefed suspension that still gets 13 mpg pulling a 10 foot trailer with the bed loaded with grass cuttings.had the motor rebuilt twice.it has a C6 automatic transmission rebuilt once.
