Default Intro

First experience Ford trucks.

I bought a '93 F150 with a 302 a couple of weeks ago from a friend. My first Ford truck. Dodges seem to haunt my Karma; however, I do own a '99 Crown Vic , but that's another Forum elsewhere.

No body damage. A touch of rust. Some peeling paint. Interior clean. Excellent tires. 137K.

The test drive, except for a whine from the PS pump, was uneventful. 4WD shift OK. Steering OK. Under carriage clean. Great price.

Drove back and forth to town (100mi RT) a few times. Not a single problem.

My wife visited her daughter. On return, Speedo and Radio inoperative! About 10mi from home, while climbing long hill, burst of black smoke. She kept driving to friends house (about 6mi) and towed on flat bed from there to home.

Note: the Fuse #18 powers the Speedo and the Shift Servos to the E4OD!!

Will continue later in proper forum. Meanwhile .....

.... I'd like some feedback on the Factory manuals from Faxon ($149) on the '93 Ford trucks. I have factory manuals for all my other vehicles, but $149 is a lot.

Will continue later in proper forum.
