'88 F150 5.8 weird coolant loss

I walked across a parking lot the other day and noticed something leaking from my ugly but reliable f150. It turned out to be coolant, and they were very steady drips from the back and driver's side...

1988 F150 4x4 front hubs

I've got one of the ugliest 150s I've ever seen--ripped up interior, rusty body, holes in the bed, five-tone paint with not a lick of shine left to it. It's also been super reliable. The exhaust is...

Unfortunately, no.

What I DO know is that this was a 40kt boat, which was darned fast in 1972 for a 46' motoryacht. A guy who knew the boat said when the captain laid the sticks forward, the...

1988--starts then dies, then starts & runs great

My truck has always had the same cold startup pattern--it starts after 5~10 seconds of turning over and idles a bit high, maybe 1500 rpm or so. After 15~20 seconds of running, it dies unless I keep...

No performance parts for the 534? Nonsense! SeaMaster was putting twin turbos and intercoolers on these things back in the 1960s & '70s. Of course, they were only used in boats. Anyway, I've...
