    Hey I know that we are coming down there on Sunday. I was needing to ask you if you have an ignition modular by chance. As we were talking about already the 78 is refusing to start all together now. He is also getting water into the engine compartment and we are not sure how to keep it out of there. Do you have any ideas? Also, what kind of block heater do you think that we should get for it? I am wanting to get all of this done and bought this weekend in hopes that it will run as it would not start this morning to save his life. If you do have that additional part can you tell me what you would want for it so that I can make sure and save back enough cash to be able to pay you for it? Thanks again Rich for all of your help. I have emptied all of my message folders to ensure that I can get your messages.

    70's F100 will either be a short bed or a long bed option, but NO F250 short bed unless it is a crew cab (4 door). A F100 or F150 (1/2 ton), 2wd with a 6 cly is a very reliable and easy truck to work on. Locate a Craigslist truck and send me the link and I will look I over for you.

    Hey I just joined fte and am looking to learn more about old ford trucks. After some searching your posts game up. I am in the process of finding one on Craigslist but honestly I am really new to the world of old trucks. What I think I want is an 1970's f100 or f250 6cylinder with a short bed. I don't mind doing some work but I would prefer to buy a recently rebuilt engine so I don't get stuck with a huge project.

    I would love get some wisdom on what to look for when buying an old ford truck. What are red flags to stay away from? What are reasonable (completed in a weekend) projects I can take on? For example everything looks good but the carburetor needs to be upgraded to an edlebrock. Basically it would be great just to pick your brain. Thanks for your help.

    it's going nowhere. I think I'm gonna get her running and drive it to a local d/s shop and see what they say. I have a lot of other work to do before I need it to work anyway, lol.
