I Own A 1977 Ford F150.. It Has a new carb. and a new fuel pump but when i start it it will run for a few minates then stalls out like its running out of fuel? i've taken the fuel line off and watched it and it pumps out the fuel.. So any kind of "HELP" will do.


  • Anyone know how I can find out the blue book value (the value I could claim for a donation, actually) for this type of vehicle?

    I know that the laws have changed regarding donation deductions, but since I am not an expert, I'll point you toward our discussion called Real-World Trade-In Values. Folks over there can give you some ideas.

    Am having trouble finding an original photo and specs for my 1977 F-250 High boy truck. Am trying to get classic plates and PA DMV is saying that it has a lift kit on it and will not okay the classic plates. I know that it came from the factory like that, but am having trouble documenting it.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You may want to contact Ford Customer Service on this one. With the VIN, they should be able to produce a production sheet and possibly other info that will authenticate the factory ride height.

    When the Truck is cold. Turn key on fuel pump will run constantly. Truck will not start. After turning it off and on 30 40 times truck will start. It runs Ruff for 5 mins then runs smooth and if you shut it off and turn back on, Fuel pump run for about 3 seconds and shuts off and truck will start. Fuel pressure 55 not running 50 when running holds 50psi in off position.
    Dual Tank system rear Tank pump not working.

    i am having a similair problem with my 1990 ford f-150. Do your pumps run and run and run for a long time too, and if so will the truck not start until the pump stops. I have replaced everything from the pumps to the filter to the fuel pump relays to the fuel pressure regulator. I can't seem to fix my problem. :confuse:

    Have an '82 F100 P/U-302W.
    Having a hard time finding out where the neg coil wire terminates.
    Original location seemed to go into the cab of the truck (under dash). No indication where the connection point is. Anyone out there have an idea?
  • jnealjneal Posts: 247
    Most likely the negative wire would go into the wiring harness into the steering column and thru the ignition switch. to a common ground.
  • I'm wanting to shorten my 1960 F 600 & put a pickup box on the it. The problem is I'm not sure if the cab style for the F 600 was the same as the 100, 200, or 300. I'm contemplating widening a step side or puting a fleet side for a dully - I don't know which would look better. I have a tiny budget but I have time and tools. Any advice would be greatly appreicated.
  • does anyone know if there is any other transfer case that is interchangeable with this truck 7.3 diesel 5spd? I have a borg warner 1356.
  • i have a 1975 f-250 2wd. i am wanting to make it 4wd but dont know what to do, help?
  • I changed the ignition coil, ignition module and still no spark,.
    Fuel pumps are fine, Any ideas? :confuse:
  • Hope somebody can help. Have a 1960 Ford F100 newly rebuilt engine. when we turn the key there is nothing, won't start, no lights, no nothing. Cannot jump it from the battery, but will start if jumped from the starter solenoid. What could be causing this to happen. WE have changed out the starter solenoid, ignition switch, with no luck.
    thanks in advance

    A ULEV car built today produces 90% less smog forming pollutants running down the highway at 50 mph than your 1960 sitting in the driveway with the engine off...(if there is gas in the tank)

  • I am having problems getting my truck to start i replaced the coil wires, plugs cap and rotor and the points. i am getting fire from the coil to the cap but not to the plugs. what do i do next? i have read the books and did everything i can think of.
  • Need advice: I'm getting ready to doll it up for street/highway driving. Has original 5.0 302 but need to replace original 5 sp elect Auto OD transmission. Do I have option for other tranny , or do I already have the best. Also is good overhaul as good as a after market tranny.
