Make sure that you have brake lights. It has a shifter interlock solenoid in the console that is activated when ever the brake lamps are on.

Just put new power steering pump in 2009 f350 but steering still tight could this be a faulty pump or do I need to bleed system

Does the pump still whine? How did you purge the air? Fords have always been a pain. So I do them all the same (newer ones could be different, But) When I replace a pump or rack or hoses, I pull fuses to keep the engine from running. With the engine running the pump turns to fast and will not purge the air, causing the fluid to come out of the PS pump vent down the road. What I do is pull those fuses, crank the engine and turn the steering wheel at least ten times from one side to the other. Left to right is one time. This method works every time. Old Fords to new ones. You could have bought a bad pump, But the rack and pinion could also be bad. Things to look for on the rack leaks are, Fluid around the boots, Fluid from the top of the gear to the steering shaft, and fluid from the bottom cover of the steering gear, Right below the steering shaft. Any of these indicate a bad seal. But the main seal is in the center of the rack. It can be bad and have no leaks. this is uncommon though.

U can put the key in but the key will not turn on to Crank but with key in u can pull Gear shift into any gear

Wiggle steering wheel while attempting to turn key on, if it is a standard might be switch in floorboard that the clutch lever presses on to make the complete circuit.
Ignition switch could be locked up.

Power steering is making a lot of noise when cranking up car and making turn what will most likely be the problem

the most likely problem will be in the power steering pump and it may be worn gears or valve. Have an accredited steering specialist shop do a pressure test to determine the fault.

I need to correctly put a F250 with a 86 351 winsdor motor back in time? - time chain and gears

Not terribly complicated. Set the crankshaft at TDC on timing scale before you start, as a reference. If the cover is off just stick it back on there for a minute and same for harmonic balancer.
Once you have done that you should see a mark on the lower gear, either straight up at the top or straight down (if at bottom, put damper back on and turn till it points up.) You should be able to find a corresponding mark on the cam gear. That mark needs to point down, directly at the one on the crank gear. To do that, loosely install the cam gear on the cam and turn it till it lines up. Remove the cam gear and place the chain over it and the bottom gear. do not change the crank or cam position. To check for proper alignment, put the balancer on the crank ant turn it exactly two turns. the marks should return to original indexing. Make sure you have everything tightened up and then put the remainder of the engine back together.

I have a 79 bronco the power steering hose blew off so i replaced the hose that didnt fix it i put on a power steering pump still didnt fix it so i bought a gear box and put that on still didnt fix it. it...

you need to jack up the front wheels with the key half on so the steering is free and the motor off turn the wheels left to right all the way slowly this will bleed the system repeat as needed one time will not be enough ,you can check with starting the engine and cranking the steering to see if it is free of air .

Key won't turn in the ignition

Yeah, the Fords are known for having to really crank on the steering wheel sometimes to get the key to turn, other than that......

The key wont turn at the final point to crank the car, last year my tumble broke, i had it fixed but when it broke i couldnt move the key at all, its not doing thay this time, 2 days ago i went to the...

Not an exact solution, but perhaps information that might lead to one.

1.Replaced the tumblers? I believe I would replace the entire ignition switch this time. It's my belief that the body of the ignition switch is worn inside, and will keep damaging the tumblers.

2.Do you have a tilt steering wheel? It's best to keep the steering column in straight line when starting the car, then tilt the wheel to where you want, after the car is started. When the steering column is in a tilted position, it puts undue strain on the ignition key switch, and the mechanism the ignition key switch operates, on GM vehicles.

This mechanism, consists of a half moon gear on the ignition key switch, that turns inside a 'Planetary' gear. I used the term 'Planetary', as the gear shape is hard to describe. It resembles an oblong loop, shaped like the number 9, with gear teeth on the inside bottom of the loop. This 'Loop' rotates, when the gear teeth of the ignition key switch, engage the teeth on the loop, and pushes a rod, or retracts the rod. The rod goes down the side of your steering column, and turns on, or turns off an ignition switch, located at the bottom left side of the steering column.

Having the steering wheel tilted, puts a strain on the ignition key switch internals, the oblong loop can break, and/or gear teeth can be stripped off.
