Hello I am not really new to the forum or edmonton lived here all my life. What I am new to is just got my license and I can drive my baby.
1992 F-150 black 302 E4OD 3.55 2wd
Just put a exhaust and K&N Intake on.
now the bad news.....
Engine has a horrible leak to it. its not the oilpan and its not the valve covers I think its the rear main seal. Tranny has got a good leak going on also. and the Diff has a nice sweat. The leaf springs are rusted bad the truck needs a overhaul in the worst way. the old guy I bought it off of thought good care ment keeping the fluids topped up and clean and getting it serviced by some highschool kids at canadian tire.
I wanna swap in a 351 and a c6 with a 4.10 rear end by next year. My skills under the hood are oil changes fluid top ups putting the intake on. etc not the best but. I do what I can to save a buck. also. My guages have no tach where can I pick up a new guage cluster with a tach?
Any way I Love Ford trucks inmo the best vehicles on the road. I wanna keep mine around its my first vehicle its nice no noticable body rust. and I love the 92's look.
Hi, congrats on your license and your 1992. Too bad about engine/trany leak, it maybe a pain to fix till you have the swap done.
I know what you mean about the po getting it serviced by some highschool kids at canadian tire, this isn`t a great way to do it.
To pick up a guage cluster with a tach try the wreckers, there should be afew of these trucks there.
I love Ford trucks as well and I had a 93 XLT supercab shortbox, it was a sweet ride.

and I first need to take care of some pesky engine problems first.
I got a radiator leak some where I need to top up my overflow regularly.
I got a engine leak hitting the exhaust pipe and burning. need to top oil off every other week .
The old girl needs a tune up in the worst of ways.
haha i bought a 78 ford last yr at this time abut and good deal on it... $400 minor rust, 400 long block, c6 tranny and mint interior..
i was n my way home and the water pump seal blew and the motor heated... i fixed that, then the tranny burnt up after 3 weeks, the replaced that and threw an edlebrock performer 400 intake with a 650 4bbl performer card, threw a set of fattys on, floor shifter by B&M and i throught i was set... drove it for about a week and the crank started kocking alittle...i was driving home from school a few days later and the thing pilled up! and not to mention i chanced the new oil pan gasket, valve cover gaskets, rear engine gasket, and the tranny oil pan gasket... too bad ur truck wsn't carberated, simple tune up
ok i just bought a 92 fi50 reg cab flare side 302 5spd but my trannys gone i need to find one the 1990-1995 trannys will work its the mazda tranny i need to find one soon have to get truck on the road....
protrac tranny is good... and i did all the seals and stuff and yes i'm in highschool... its not hard at all if u have patcients and time to do it... the valve covers were about $15, rear engin was $20 or $30 and the tranny pand one was $45 with filter, the oil pan i forget, not much thats for sure... i had to change the motor mounts too and stuff like that... on my new truck i changed the header gaskets cause exhast leaks...
