Hello, Ford stocks parts for older models, especially in trucks where many last on Farms and such as occasional work trucks. I know what you are saying and first I will give you a good Website which also has phone numbers of the Salvage yards where they take apart trucks like yours daily.

The site is Car-parts.com. You can enter information in general for a part and you will get a list of Salvaged parts with a phone number, price, and mileage from the truck it was from. You can get new parts from a company called Dennis-Carpenter.com. He can get you suspension and body parts back to the 1930's. The help line is 704-786-8139 and ask for help with the Trucks. They also make restoration parts for old tractors and the phone # may be different than what I am looking at on the Tractor catalog on my desk. They have a toll free line 800-476-9653.

I see a catalog from 1980-1996 for $3. You should be able to get images online. I hope my solution is very helpful to you. I worked in Ford Service Parts for 37 Years.

All of these parts are still available. It's a Ford!! lol . This sounds like they may be going a little excessive. If this is something you want to tackle and would like someone to walk you through it, let me know. Here are some parts prices for the spindle, bearings, seal, ball joints, etc..
King pin set = $100(both sides) wheel bearings x2 = $30 cotter pin $.59 wheel seal = $10. Not too bad and just a little time and borrow some tools and you will be good to go. Let me know, I will be happy to help. These old trucks are pretty simple.

It is for sure that the front collision has done the damage to all the sections mentioned and it was important that before you took delivery of the car a proper trial test run was important. It will be best to get this back and have it checked to rectify the above faults.possible cable , sensor, gear could be damged and might need replacement.

Tough to tell without being there but it may be your timing chain slipping or broken. At that age of vehicle (how many miles) if the timing chain has not been replaced - that would be my suspect.

1983 Ford F250 will start but won't idle without holding down gas


hi! there, its really help good of replacing old ones,perhaps the condition of current flow to ignite continously your combustion due insuffcient current supply from your ignition system could positively stop your engine,if you maintain this ignition system the engine won't stop running.in such a case this type of model need mostly to be tune up some internal part on the head cylinder should take place of correctnes such as intake and exhaust valve,the rocker arm seat valve and spurk plug.if you done this your worry will be lessen.have a nice day.
