Another Newbie here...

Hi everyone,

My name is Rick, and I recently bought a 1973 F250 (Going thru mid life crisis)

So far I have done some minor engine work, added power steering (ugh), added another set of springs, new rear end (broke original at first mud jam), adding a posi - traction locker, new axles (30 spline) to match new gears, new clutch (burned out first one at first mud jam), new winch with second battery, 37 inch Interco Super Swampers.

I am not really a car mechanic type (wish I would have started when I was younger), although I am very mechanical, so I am trying to learn on the fly (with help from many friends)

I doubt I can add much to the forum from a knowledge standpoint, but I certainly have many questions.

I have done a lot of lurking over the past few months, so thanks for the info I have already gathered

Best Regards

Rick ( I will post pics when I figure that out)
