An empty F-250HD 4x4 with a big block is going to be over 5000 lbs. Figure at least 6K loaded (maybe more, depending on what "loaded" means to you).



An '85 F-250HD had either a Dana 44 HD...

I towed about a 6000 lb trailer once with about -300 lbs tongue weight (trailer CG behind the axle). It didn't sway at all. Until it did. Another time I towed about a 4500 lb trailer with about...

The tow ratings with a manual trans, especially with taller gear ratios, were pretty laughable back in the day. Gary's chart from the '85 owners manual shows what I remember from my '85 F-250HD,...

When I first rebuilt my Bronco I went with a serpentine belt system that didn't leave room for a fan between the water pump and the radiator, so I used two small electric fans in the upper right and...

To help you look (if you didn't already know), F-250 crew cabs are all short boxes, F-350 crews are all long boxes. So you are looking for any F-250 crew (on-line classifieds don't always say bed...

I had a local 4x4 shop build mine. They started with the factory roll bar and added front and rear cages. They also put places to mount shoulder harnesses for all 4 seats.

There shouldn't be any difference in the bellhousings between a 2WD and a 4WD (but the 460/manual trans combo wasn't real common so they still aren't a dime a dozen).

I've had an NP435 ('85 F-250) and a T-18 n('75 CJ5). The lack of a 1st gear syncro was occassionally an issue, but for the most part didn't really matter. You need to come to a stop to shift into...

$400 - $600 to install a new carrier sounds too low to me, unless it's just the labor, not including the cost of the new carrier.

As for the replacement axle, keep in mind that factory limited...

I don't know about the T-19 specifically, but generally converting a 2WD trans to 4WD (or 4 to 2) means completely disassembling it to get the output shaft out, and then reassembling it with a tail...

People say the slide hammer works well. I haven't tried it. The first time I needed to pull a spindle I hadn't heard of that, so I made a puller. I bored a hole in a piece of 3/8" steel plate that...

No regular inspections at all anymore in MN. Of course if a cop sees something they don't like they can look it over.

Pull the cover and count teeth. The number of teeth on the ring gear divided by the number of teeth on the pinion is your ratio. I'd suggest doing this before you get a new axle. 3.55 gears with...
