1985 ford f150, 4.9 carb, 4speed transmission POWER PROBLEMS HELP !!!
i just bought a 85 ford f150, 4.9 carb engine 4 speed tranny, 89,000 miles on the truck ... when i first got it, it was not running, alot of wires had been messed with so i had to wire a push button ignition, after that i drove it, and it felt like it had no power and it would stall out on hills so i adjusted the distributor and got power then replaced the fuel pump and it ran great for 10 mins then the clutch blew... so i changed the clutch and ran perfect for a week changed the oil drove it around than all of the sudden no power, it will idle but when i try to go in first gear it feels like its about to die... so i parked the car where i broke down and the next day came to get it and i fired it up and bearly made it up the hill before it stalled again, now could it be somthing with the timing or do you guys think somthing else is wrong i mean it shifts beautifully and the engine purrs so i dont thinks its the tranny or engine but idk ... maybe new plugs and wires ... any help would be greatful thanks
