Straight forward no mine fields use a jack to jack the engine up, pull center bolt first get it where it's loose with the jack on it once you remove the center bolt then jack it up enough to unbolt it. Makes it easier if you have a swivel head ratchet or wrench to get at it. Afterwords check that the transmission mount is ok by prying against the transmission and the rear cross-member.

How do you replace a ignition modulel on a 1977 ford f150 m in the distributer

On the 1977 the ignition module is an aluminum box that should be mounted somewhere in the engine compartment. The ignition pick-up is mounted inside the distributor and you must remove the drive gear from the shaft in order to pull the shaft out and slide the pick-up off the hub of the distributor. This is not an easy job and most people try replacing the module first as it is usually the problem.

I have a 1987 ford f-150 with a 302. I would like to put the 302 into a 1989 ford f-150 that is four wheel drive that currently has a 4.9 in it. would there be any problems with doing this.

302 is a 5.0L v8 engine and 4.9 is a 300ci, 6 cylinder. so you may have problem with transmission, exhaust manifold, motor mounts, vacuum lines/hose, radiator, power steering pump, a/c system, and mostly wirings. not to mention there is a computer in those trucks!

MY mechanic said my motor mount was broken (dogbone). I was a mechanic before I was a carpenter, can I replace this?

yes you can, fairly easy fix usually. requires you to get a new mount, support motor with jack and undo motor mount bolts, raise motor off the mount, replace mount, lower motor back into position, resecure motor mount bolts, and your done. usually just the rubber gets worn out on those things, pretty common.

Replace bake pads on f 150 2006 front and back

Jack truck up, remove wheel, remove caliper slide bolts (12mm i think), remove caliper. caliper mounting bracket will stay on truck if you are just doing a pad slap, the mounting bracket comes off with two bolts (18 mm i think) remove old pads, compress caliper piston with channel locks or a c-clamp, replace pads, lube up caliper slides with dielectric grease , tighten slide bolts, replace wheel. proceed to other side. Then befor you road test pump the break pedal. Once ya get a look at it, its pretty easy to see what ya need to do. Front and rear ar pretty mush the same.

Need to know how to remove and replace my f 150 ingention it is a 1987 and what tools i will need

The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.
NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible. On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.
The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company.
To replace the switch:
  • Remove the ignition switch wiring harness.
  • Unbolt it from its position.
  • Bolt the new switch into position.
  • Attach the witing harness.
