Hope the title got your attention haha
but on a more serious note
Left hand turns confuse my truck, especially when it is over 10 mph, the truck will begin to sputter, kill off the radio and anything else that is electronic.


I don't know where to begin to check, hoping somebody else will

That is an interesting situation that you have right there.

I was going to suggest maybe a short of some sort that is making contact when the wheel gets turned to a certain position, but who knows.

Maybe some of the other guys will have an answer and good luck with it.

Sounds like a bad ground somewhere. I'd starting checking wires under the dash, make sure something didn't get tugged out of place.

I'm no expert on the 80's pickups but im pretty sure there is a "Y" ground behind the dash the is prone to shakin lose.

sorry for the delay. being unemployed is no fun, i seem more busy now then ever haha.
it's an 85 f250, 351.
i think I might know what the problem is, but i don't know how to start fixing it.
ill have to get a picture later today, I don't have one on my camera at the moment.


For one, the battery is held in place with a bungee cord, and then the starter solenoid seems to be very very messed up.
it has what looks like solder holding the + end of it together, it's extremely loose. and the only reason I noticed it was because my truck refused to start today until i jiggled the + end of the solenoid
is it easy to replace one of those?
and should I invest in a proper tie down for the battery?
