Ford 350 89

Discussion in 'Ford Trucks' started by east end turf, Dec 12, 2006.

  1. Just Bought A 89 F350 V8 460 Dump With A 8' Meyers Central Hydrolcs And A Henderson Cheif Ss Sander . Not A Ford Guy At All I Bleed Chevy But Got A Good Deal On Truck And Its In Good Shape So I Figured What The Hell Only 46000 Miles. So Far Ive Chased Non Working Headlights For A Week Changed Switch Then Burned Up Plug On Switch You Ford Guys Know What I Am Talking About ! Then The Ho Low Beam Switch On Floor Cought Fire . Now The Power Steering Pump Only Works Going Left So If I Wanna Race It It Would Be Perfect ! No Power Steering To Right Side Im Gonna Change Out Box!! Just Bad Luck Or Will Things Get Better ? This Truck Is Not Making Me Like Fords Any Better!! Anything Thing Else I Should Be Lookin Fore?

    look out for rusting brake lines,we've repaired far too many of them.

    I have heard of the light switch plug shorting out, but the dimmer switch on the floor is unusual I would suspect something is causing too high of a amp draw on the light circuit. The p/s on left only is another odd issue I have not seen before. I agree with rusting brake lines but that has been on GM and DCX as well as Fords.

    Bet you figured out why it was such a great deal?
    I bought an 89 too. Wife named it "The Big Red Drain "
    It got 4 new tires, Brakes , a gas tank / 2 pumps and every filter in the first month I had it.
