At the moment i live in Beaverton, which i find rather unfourtunate cause i only have room for one truck. I have a 1981 f150 4x4 with the 300 I6, i traded my subaru legacy wagon for it, straight across. only thing is the tranny leaks windshield leaks etc along with more rust than I reckon i can handle, as I am relitvely new to the world of old trucks, I will admit.. I owned a '84 chevy.. that was my first love. but now I finally have a ford. so my first question is this... is it possible to put f150 4x4 running gear in an f250 2wd? i have a f250 available too me for less than $100, how ever the lack of 4x4 is stopping me from grabbing it right quick. not because i think i'll need it in snow.. but cause i want it in the mud and muck of where ever i can fit through the trees.

oil pan stripped

just wondering what ya'll's thought's are on using a helicoil to repair the threads on an oil pan. I'm trying to avoid dropping it if i can, as space and tools are some what limited to the street and my craftsmen mechanic set. at the moment I have a plug in there but it was leaking out the sides so I have gorilla snot spread round it, but that's still not 100%. my apologize if this ain't the right place to ask this, I'm still tryin' to figure this forum out

Is the plastic washer under the Plug, or are the threads stripped?

pretty sure the threads in the pan are stripped, got a new plug with the washer, I don't think its set, but it wont stop turning. not sure if i stripped it coming out or going in , no idea when the last oil change was. original plan was drop the pan weld a nut inside then match a bolt. but now I'm thinking either a helicoil or drill it tap it a size bigger

Try your local NAPA, They sell an oversize plug with self tapping threads that may work. If it was me, I'd remove the pan, and look in the local junk yard for another. Which engine is it? I've got lots of spares...............
