Question about 1989 Ford F 350

89 f350 stops feeding gas on hot days

I have an 89 Ford F-350 that stops feeding gas to the engine on hot days.  The truck is a 5-speed manual, 7.5L V8 with about 150k on the engine.  The first time it happened was a few months ago when we had unusually warm weather for the time (live in Yuma, so 100+ is normal).  Driving down the highway the engine would tug back from time to time as if fuel wasn't being fed properly.  If I had to stop, it would be difficult to get it going again, and sometimes would stall.  Any thoughts?

Sounds like vapor lock. A trick for this is get a few WOOD clothes pins. Attach clothes pins to the metal lines under the truck in various locations. The wooden clothes pins are now acting as a heat sink. They help draw the heat away from the fuel system. Pick up another fuel cap, preferably a vented cap to help release the extra pressure caused by the heat.

F-350 speed/odometer not working and shifting hard

there is a speed sensor on the top of the rear differential. either the sensor is bad or it has become unplugged. when the truck doesnt know how fast it is going, the trans goes into "limp mode" to protect itself...whic causes it to shift hard and if u look you'll notice the o/d light is blinking
