Default auto transmission

New member, new truck. 75' F-250 high boy, ranger package, 360, pb, ps, ac, 4 sp, no rust, unmolested, 98K. I bought it for some mountain property to plow but I might clean it up more than expected.

My question is, what are these worth cleaned up and I was considering putting an automatic transmission in it. I have the tranny but not a shifter or linkage etc. Opinions on the auto and does anyone have any suggestions on getting the rest of the parts?

Never heard of a high boy until I bought this but it sounds like there is a little following.

Thanks

Welcome to the forum!

There is a following.

Enough to invest money into it in hopes of making some... don't know about that much of a following! I am not a wealth of info on this trucks, but some other members are. They will chime in soon enough!

You say it's unmolested? I'd leave it as is if it has 98k on it and is unmolested. I'd need to see pics to tell you what it's in the ballpark worth, plus that 4spd w/ granny 1st and 4x4 with low range will pull damn near anything.

Take some pictures of it, go to the gallery here on FTC, click "Upload", then select photos, then on the drop down bar select "FTC Member's Image Gallery" then click "Upload" this time at the bottom, once uploaded go to the photo, highlight the image code and paste it into you're post on here.

You'll need to click on the link in my signature titled "How to fix your FTC pics" cause at the moment there is a bit of a problem with the gallery modifying the code for the photos, not to hard to erase the mentioned stuff in the thread. Or just post them and I can modify the code and post the big version of the pics.

Couldn't get any pics over here. They are in the gallery under classic trucks. Any input on getting parts and what to do, and not do, to it are appreciated. Thanks

A truck in that condition is worth about 2k-2.5k. No rust on it? You should be able to get most parts at O'Reilly parts stores and other big chain parts stores, there is also www.rockauto.com www.jegs.com www.summitracing.com

Just don't hot rod it and start adding big wheels with spinners on it and you'll be fine:) I would check the wheel bearings in the front axle along with the brake pads and rotors, I usually will replace the bearings in a new to me truck anyway so I know that they are new and have no miles on them and are packed correctly.

No problem:) Be sure and see if that is a 360, I have some links I'll post up in a minute on "Decoding" the door tag for you're truck and how to measure to tell the difference in a 360/390.

Let me go dig up the posts.

Here is how to to whether you have a 360 or a 390(the easiest way):

Turn the crank by hand with a socket and breaker bar until it's on TDC, take spark plug #1 out, insert dowel rod and put your thumb where it comes up to the top of the spark plug hole, use the marker to mark it. Take dowel rod out and spark plug #4 out, re-insert dowel rod in hole #4 repeat. Measure the distance between the two lines, 360= 3.50 stroke, 390= 3.78 stroke.

And how to Decode you're door tag:
