Newguy Edmonton

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.

sorry man aint got a Job yet. currently need to get that problem addressed. have a interview tomorrow so we will see.

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.
New battery.
New alternator.

I was a fool for buying a intake and exhaust

yeah I have to turn a 2wd grocery getter that was touched by inexperienced hands into a beast... with a puny 302.

your in school and replaced all those seals?

either your a mechanic or you know someone who is. who replaced your seals and what was the price?
