I have an '87 F-150 w/a 302 and a manual 4-speed trans. 150,000 miles. It has
the orig. clutch and has just gone out. My Ford dealer says there is no
adjustment on this clutch because it's Hydraulic. Is that right?? He also
says a clutch job will cost me about $750.00. Is that right????

way too much for a clutch job espeacialy if its a two wheel drive. just did a
2wd 88 f-150 4.9 5spd under four hours including surfacing f-wheel, pilot bearing
and changing one piece rear main seal. of course the dealers here in prescott az
are getting 65.00 hr labor. and going by chilton flat rate. get a quote from a
private shop.

I have an 87 FS Bronco with 300 6 and got the following quotes on my
Hydraulic clutch

Amco = 900 to 1000 bucks
Private shop = 600 to 700
Mr. Transmission = 550

Shop around and I bet you can find something cheeper and still just a good
with some kind of warranty.

Subject: FTE Perf - Dealer overpricing of shop work

I am having a runnining dissagreement with my local Ford dealer concerning
charges applied to a work order I just had completed on my 92 F150 Flairside.
1. Original estimate= Driver side power window does not operate Price quote
$68.00
2. Since they were not able to schedule the maintenance at that time a date
for repair was set up.
3. Took the vehicle in on the scheduled date and added for them to check the
right inside door handle since it was binding. This increased the quote to
$136.00 which I approved.
4. I returned to pick up the completed service call and was informed that the
window motor was faulty and would cost $195.00 for the motor but hey only had
to lubricate the handle on the right side. I again OKd the cost of the motor
since I had to have an operational drivers side window.
5. When I picked up the finished vehicle I was informed that the cost was
$168.00 for repair of the drivers side window' $68.00 for lubricating the
right side door handle and $195.00 for the motor.
6. I believe the original quote of 138.00 to repair both the handle of the
right side and the window of the left side should have covered the labor and
the only additional charge should have been for the cost of the motor.

I would appreciate your opinion on these charges.

Thanks

Bud

He is right about the no adjustment, but the price is way high... The
independent shop I used to work at would do that truck for about $240 labor
plus parts, which should be less than $200 I am sure... Shop around, I am
sure you can find something in this range....
