I've only seen the 5.0's in the light duty F250's which are more like heavy F150 IMO.

The 8th digit is the engine.

3 - 3.8L V6 (82-83)
E - 4.9L I6 (80-86)
Y - 4.9L I6 (87-96)EFI
D - 4.2L...

It's behind the driver's kick panel and you remove it from the inside the engine compartment IIRC. It's been a while but I think removing the wheel liner helps.

There's a switch on the floor behind the emergency brake. Just step on it to switch between high and low beams.

You can leave the hubs locked and the shifter in 2-hi for 2wd driving. The wheel bearings are always turning locked or not. It's the front axle components and it's actually good to lock the hubs from...

I like ceramics for everything but work trucks. Anything that's going to tow, haul, work, etc gets semi-metalics. They deal with the heat better than ceramics do.

Bendix and Wagner are great...

It's the whole cluster. I'm thinking it's wiring. I've got another 87 that's carb'd that has a tach. If I ever get any time maybe I'll try that cluster to see what happens.

I was thinking the same thing, needs a shim.

Want a true rant? Local pepboys told me the heater bypass hose for my 86 F150 was special order. I was told they can't stock every part for a 20yr old...

Nope, it's gas. 460 carb vs 351 EFI but I wouldn't think that mattered. It's got to be a wiring problem somewhere...

Can a separate wire be run to feed the tach? I want a tach but I don't want to...

Tach not working

I put a working tach from a 90 Bronco into my 87 C&C F350 tow truck and it works when cranking, but not when running. Any ideas on what to look for?

Yup, it's an 80 model year. However, I have seen some older vehicles where they were titled by the year they were built and thus the title on this could have said 79. It's basically a typo, but back...

No, adjusting the steering box shouldn't change the wheel center. There's a jam nut on top with a slotted bolt. Loosen the jam nut, turn the slotted bolt in a quarter turn, tighten the jam nut and...

I don't think it's the axle that needs to be moved, but the front bumper. You need to space out or cut the front bumper 1-2" to fit larger tires. 33's on stock rims will fit but may rub and you'll...
