On the top of the steering gear box you will see a threaded rod with a slot in it. On this threaded rod there will be a hex nut that you will need to loosen. Back the nut off so you can turn the rod in gently until the play is gone. Do not over tighten or damage will occur. You will need to look in a spec book to get the correct inch pounds setting for the steering gear lash. This is a simple process. Good luck

Can 1985 f-150 tailgate fit on a 1990 f-150

Probably will. The models really changed significantly in 1993. Models for 1984 to 1992 were pretty much the same. Suggest you measure everything on both to make sure. They are not hard to remover/replace.

Does the dash need to be removed on a 1990 F-150 to replace the heater core?

No, just remove the glove box and then the plastic cover behind it. Once the cover is removed, you'll find your heater core.

I have a 1990 Ford F-150 My ignition switch will not work and the steering is locked I had it toad to my house The driver left it on my neighbors property need to move it.How can I get the steering...

ok we know your not responable for any car stolen in your area. around your steering wheel the are screws that hold on the cover. depending on the make and modle you might need star shape or allen wreches. remove this. then you should have a screw or pin or something holding the igntion in place. remove it. then take a flat head screwdriver and turn it forward. this should be no problem unless there is some kind of anitheft or alarm on it.

Ignition switch

Have you tried turning the wheel, then turn the key? Turn it to the left, try to turn key, if no good, try turning wheel to right, then turn key. There may just be pressure on the steering, not allowing the key to turn. Hope it's that simple. Let me know if it works.
