Early trucks had a larger cap/pipe hole. Later trucks used the smaller, more 'normal' size one. I believe the break, like so many things on these trucks, is 48-50/51-52. If you need a large hole...

Before you start messing with the box, it's best to have someone help you inspect the entire steering linkage run and see exactly what's moving and what's not when turning the wheel. You could have a...

imo, the best way to pay is through your own banks. If everyone is real, it's easy and safe. I sold an engine block and parts to a guy in England once. We emailed back and forth the details, but I...

Are you sure there's enough left to attach a vin tag to? ;) The poor thing's looking a bit ragged.
I don't know of anyone selling repro Canadian tags.

The whole number is BDA 82 BH 51-27372.

The cabs are all the same. The little metal flap that screws to the bottom of the cab is the same for F1-6. I just sent this piece to another member here, and I have a similar one for the left side....

I bought my 85 F250/460/C6/3.54 back in 1990, and over the years I got pretty consistent 10-11 mpgs no matter what I was doing. Last summer I picked up a 97 F250 460/E4OD/4.11 truck with EFI, (the 85...
