I don't think a 351 will do the job for you.  Everyone that I know has
either the diesel or the 460.  I myself have a '93 with the diesel that I
bought new and have pulled 5 ton for a gross weigh of 17,500 with no
problem.  And I get 15 - 16 mpg no matter what I'm doing with it.  Look for
a diesel.

Hi All,
Just wanted to get some opinions on a 1995 F350. I am looking at an F350 W/
crewcab. single rear
wheel with a 351 motor. I do not do alot of heavy duty hauling at this
point. I wanted to see what
the rest of your opinions might be.

I got a kit for that at Harbor Freight for something like 18 bux...has
worked real well the two times
that I have used it

Subject: Strange "rattle"

Now that the weather has moderated a bit,  I've been driving with my
AC off and the windows open.  I've noticed a strange rattling sound
at low speed that sounds like a few loose rocks behind the hub cap.
(yes I checked the hub cap :)  The noise goes away when I apply the
brakes slightly.  Nothing seems wrong with the brakes or the U
joints.  Could this be something in the rear end?  BTW,  my truck is
a 1989 F150 with an I6 and Mazda 5 speed.

it sounds like you have a lose brake pad.  Pull of your front wheels and see
if you can move them independent of the backing plate.  If so, you need to
put some stickum on there.

The air pump wasn't hooked up? Yeah, that might do it. An easy way to find
out is to put a broom handle through the cat. If it runs okay after that,
you need a new cat. LOL

Autozone loans the pulley removal tools for free, whether you buy the PS
pump from them or not.  They just take a credit card deposit to make sure
you bring the tool back.

They lent me a kit that included one tool to remove the pulley, and a second
to put it back on.  Make sure you check that the kit is complete and not
broken.  They once loaned me a Pitman arm remover that was already busted
when I opened the box.  If my neighbor wasn't the guy behind the counter, I
think they would have given me a hard time about it.

Needing the wisdom of the list. Needed to use my 4 x to get out of the back
40 only to find out that the shift on the fly hubs were not locking in.There
is a clicking sound coming from the front but due to the noise from the
diesel motor I can,to tell if it is coming from one  of the hubs or the
front end.I have used the 4x very little. Is this a common problem ? is
there a simple test/fix ? where is a good 4x shop in Atlanta?
