I would replace fluid and filter. At least the fluid. Old fluid has bad temperature range protection and the inter cooler doesn't help cool the lines much.

I cant figure out how to wire a push button ignition on my 1985 ford f-150

If you're looking for wiring a push-button starter, then you just need to connect one terminal of a momentary type switch to the solenoid (little) post on your starter, and the other wire to a ground source. This will only crank the engine, so you would need an additional switch, or the actual ignition switch to switch on the accessories, and the ignition system.

Fuel Tanks reversed , Gauge not reading?

The Ford trucks were recalled for the tank switch replacement. Somehow the switches would pump fuel from one tank to the other. This would cause the one tank to overflow and or result in a fire from hot exhaust temps coming into contact with the fuel. Check the dash tank switch. It is probably bad.
