In Seattle, working on 1969 ranger

Here's the thread to my truck.

http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/98...lean-69-a.html

I've wandered over to the regional forum because i need some help with this thing.

I now have 2 major headaches with this thing.

1) I still haven't been able to fix the headlights just shutting off. there is another thread for that, but i think i'm going to try the relay harness next. there are so many extra lights and wires on this thing it's not even funny.

the MAJOR issue

2) this thing bogs down like no other. it ran fine for about 2 weeks. didn't drive it too much. put a few hundred miles on it. now i changed the oil, tranny fluid, intake filter, and a few other things. now i have hardly no throttle response and no power to get moving. driving up hills kicks my ***.

I need a referral to a shop or someone local that will help me rebuild the carb (i think). I'm not trying to go bargain shopping, but if someone will work for beer, pizza, and a little cash, i would love the help.

Thanks in advance guys.

thank you for the welcome.

I haven't gotten around to the ignition setup yet, it's definitely on the list though.

it's a ford 302. the 5.0 V8, 3 speed auto. i haven't pulled the numbers off the block so i can't give you the exact year it was made.

have you tried just cleaning out the carb? there are some good spray cans that can clean out that junk..also if you havent yet try the fuel filter too.. those get gummed up real easy on the older 5.0s..simple little fixes and cheap too..i bet those could help out alot.

...as far as the bogging down, what about the vacuum lines? Maybe the lines are going old and starting to get a vacuum leak.

I can't help you with those issues, but I know an upholstery shop in Bellevue that does nice work. I can't imagine all those years in storage were kind to your interior.
