Question about 1986 Ford F 250
My boyfriend and I recently bought and '86 Ford F250 with approx. 140,000 miles for $600. This was previously a farm vehicle and had sat for approx. 2-3 years. After new plugs & wires and adjustment of the idle it seemed to run much better, but then we noticed the oil leak. It's not a small leak, but a pretty good drip, and seems to only be worse when the vehicle is running. Clutch had seemed fine at first, then after driving it only a couple of times now there is no resistance in it whatsoever and it wants to die. Is there any hope for this truck?? Or should we just eat the $600 and try to find something more sound?
If you are willing to put some work into it. it could still be saved.The oil leak, if the leak is not obvious to the eye, could be the main seals front or back or both. The clutch can be adjusted and or replaced. If it does'nt smoke or the engine runs clean. it should be saved. but if the engine is bad then i would just sell as a parts vehicle.
