It was a long time ago but I seem to recall having a similar problem with my 1982 F150. Mine isn't an XL but I suspect that isn't significant. THe problem turned out to be one of the wires to the solenoid. I replaced the solenoid itself as well but it still didn't work until the wire was replaced.

i have a 1982 f250 with a 6.6 400 and c6 trans that is sitting on a frame that is rusted out but i also have a 1993 f250 with a 5.8 351. i was wondering if anyone knew if the 1982 f250 body and engine/tranny would fit on the 1993 f250 frame. i realize mounts will be different and i can handle that but i am more concerned about the body fitting and the drive line fitting. and if anyone had any tips on the 400 engine because i will be restoring the whole truck my self
#71 of 77 replace lock cylinder 78 f-150

I'm trying to replace the key lock cylinder on my 78 F-150. The only problem is; the key won't turn to the accessories position so I can release the pin. I've tried WD40 (stupid idea) and a graphite dry lube to get the key to turn but it's still doesn't work, no matter how much I jiggle the key.
Is there any other option available to me short of drilling out the cylinder or replacing the entire ignition?

I just changed the transmission in my 1982 Ford F-150. Now, when it's in gear and the gas is pressed, the wheels aren't spinning. They started spinning for a brief time (matter of seconds), then stopped again. Did not have this problem prior to the transmission change. Any idea what could be wrong?

Is there fluid in the "new" transmission? If you filled it when first installed then started engine most if not all that oil could have gone to fill converter.

I don't know if they carry the specific part you are looking for but LMC Truck has lots of Ford parts.
Their website is www.LMCTRUCK.com

I had the same problem with a 1979 F150. When I bought the truck it had set for about 1 year. I found out that tank was full of rust when I started it it might run all day or 10 min. When I took the tank off the filter screen on pickup was full off rust. Put in a new sending unit and pickup assembly. No more trouble.

Just picked up a 1990 F-150 4X4 short box with a bench seat with folding armrest. Can't seem to find a cup holder that will work. Any body have suggestions?
