What have i done today, well for starters i started drilling out my ignition cylinder seeings as all the tumblers went to hell in a hand basket (what a pita) then last thursday i got a ticket for usafe ops (accidently stired up some dust while trying not to rear end a corvette (cops are a pita out here in vegas too)
Well I sold my '96 Eddie. I still have my 95 though. In place of the Eddie I purchased a very clean 85 Mustang GT. A totally stock, unmolested, no option GT. This is my future 11 second Daily Driver.
Well I bought a Black 95 SC XLT today to replace my 94 Red Reg cab SB XL. Best feature is NO RUST !!! very unusual in this part of the country (New England). The truck came from Oregon and is in very good condition. Both trucks have the 300 with the Mazda 5 speed. I'm mostly a Chevy man, my other car is a 94 Caprice wagon, but the 92-96 F150s with the 300 is one of the best truck lines ever made. The old red truck had a busy last day as it had to replace my work truck (service). Its being retired to a scout camp as a site truck.
I finally replaced the small coolant hoses/pipes that go from the heater/water pump hose to the throttle body and from the TB to the intake manifold on my 5.0 V8. They are 17 years old and will not stop leaking!! Try asking the parts guy at NAPA for one of these small premolded/preformed hoses and pipes for the truck 5.0!
And am installing/bolting on some neat front tow hooks from Colibert to prepare for the weather snow!!! Never could understand by Henry didnt install factory front hooks on Fseries 4x4s of this vintage---cant pull the chevys ,dodges,dogs and import cars out of the snow ,from the front of the truck, without front hooks!!
