Been lurking in the weeds for about 5 years now, haha. I bought a 51 F1 about 6 years ago, just the modified frame with cab. Just this year I put it on the road for the first time! Look forward to sharing my stories and some build pictures.
Newbe here, 1989 E-350 Diesel 14ft U-haul truck. (needs a lot of work). I'm mainly using it as a mobile shop and storage unit. It already had a side door installed in the box so I don't have to use the roll up door if I don't want to. today was my first day on the forum and I already have a good ideal on fixing the first problem. (fuel injectors leaking fuel)
Howdy all! Been around for awhile, lurking as you say. I have an 03 F150 that should have a new motor showing up any day! 154 rounds on her an she looks good, not so well with the cab sitting on a trailer though!
Hi Everyone I have owned ford trucks my whole life recently bought a 1975 F100 Ranger Xlt with a 360 big block in it. Want to restore this truck but starting with motor. Truck has set for along time in really decent shape body wise have motor problems due to setting all gunked up bent push rods etc. In the process of tearing motor down now. Im not a mechanic by far but have confidence that I can fix just about anything. Have a good mechanical background and work full time repairing dialysis machines and reverse osmosis water systems. Joined this site to ask questions to members that know what they are doing.
Johnyce. I too am a newbe. I also had much difficulty finding a way to post a new thread. But I stumbled upon it. Go to the page where you can select the category of threads based on the year/model of truck that you have. On the left at the top of the listings you should find an oval button "new thread". Good luck. There are many new posts each day. I don't know the probability of someone seeing yours or mine. I haven't gotten a single response from mine, "Dually help" from Monday. I'm glad I'm not in dire straits for this repair.
Want to introduce myself and say that finding your site has begun to be a godsend. my friend recently purchased a 1999 Expedition w/ 250K+ miles and its having all sorts of annoying problems...I wish to say thank you and will continue to rely heavily on this forum.
I COULDN'T RESIST, I JUST HAD TO JOIN. AFTER CHECKING OUT THIS SITE FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS I REALIZED THAT MOST OF THE INFO I REQUIRE TO MAKE MY 53 A REALITY IS ON HERE.
THE ONLY WAY TO SEE PICS WAS TO SIGN UP.
I MUST HAVE BUILT ABOUT 6 OR 7 OF THESE TRUCKS AS RESIN MODEL KITS IN THE 70'S
I AM PLANNING ON DOING IT AS A RAT ROD & NEEDED A SOLUTION FOR LOWERING THE FRONT & REAR SUSPENSION.
I APOLOGIZE IN ADVANCE FOR THE MULTITUDE OF QUESTIONS THAT I AM SURE I WILL HAVE.
SO FAR, GREAT WEBSITE!!!
hi guys, been a ford trucker owner for many years. Was a high school shop teacher for 30 years taught mechanics and other courses of course but mechanics was my main area. So that being said always nice to have more people to talk to when it comes to working on or repairing your vehicle.
I have enjoyed reading all of the info and advice you guys bring to the table...
1978 F-250 CrewCab Short Bed
6in lift 37in tires
400 w/c6 tranny

In the middle of getting into cosmetics on the truck and really having trouble finding the outside trim for the rear doors. i know this is probably been covered somewhere else. Pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated
The pic shows the trim on the passenger side, but it pretty much missing all of it along the drivers side of the truck. However, as you can see, there are a few small pieces on the passenger side missing as well. When i do the trim, I want it to have all the new shine to it and to match. So I would like to get the whole set. No money for a full paint job or a restore, so I'm trying to find the small parts (trim and get the rust spots fixed) in the mean time.
Thanks again for all the info and help on bringing this truck to its full potential.
I'll post pics and progress as I go, once I get the hang of the site.
Also suggestions on threads to subscribe to would be much appreciated
This is going to be my toy and project for years to come - looking forward to the final product using the info on this site!!
