I know these old trucks aren't renowned for excellent steering, but at what point is it a problem?
Took the truck out on a highway with some mild turns, and at times I had the steering wheel a full 90 degrees turned, while going 50mph.
With a suspension lift and 30in tires, do I need steering...
I'm going to dive into this issue over the weekend but wanted some of your guys thoughts.
This might be a dumb question since this is my first standard transmission, but I SHOULD be able to idle in 1st and 2nd gear, correct? The problem I'm having is that while going around a turn slowly (2nd...
I have a 2.9, but my high idle was caused by the TPS. I don't know exactly what you mean by hanging RPMs but the throttle can have hesitation when the TPS is bad.
Motorcraft and Hitachi? IACs seem to be the go-to but there are a couple cheap ones that seem to work okay.
And don't adjust that...
Okay, thought the truck was fully sorted out, took it to a scrapyard to drop off some metal, and it died. And it wouldn't start back up.
$60 tow and a fresh battery later, I turned the key and noticed.. fuel pump didn't prime. Test lights confirm no power to the high-pressure fuel pump. It is...
Some 3rd party IACs were pretty junk, so if you have a Motorcraft still in there and it works properly I would keep it.
The MAP sensor wasn't a huge issue, so don't see the need it for it
But hey it's your truck, if it makes you feel better doing it then go ahead
Ah I see what you're saying now. I didn't even know that was an option. Seems like the '83 to '85 trucks had a bunch of weird things that Ford wanted to try. My '86 has two rows of idiot lights and the gauges
I have no idea on this one, maybe someone on here has done it
Might have to put things on hold for awhile but wanted to throw out a feeler for what y'all have laying around.
My 3.27 gears feel rather uninspiring on 30in tires so looking to move up to 4.10s if anyone has them. '93 Dana 35 (non-hybrid).
And these weird rims (front one):
As far as I...
So you're going from a tachometer to a non-tach with the gauges? I dont believe it's plug and play since the pins in the connector are different. Repinning the connector is simple enough
This is an article on a gauge to tachometer swap, you'd just be doing it backwards
1983-1986 Gauge Cluster...
Just had this problem and thought it was just utterly stupid. I had to order upper and lower ball joints for both sides. Same manufacturer, same line of product, but the lower ball joints were at a different warehouse than the upper.
