Default 1987 F-150 (Farm Truck)

Hi. I'm a novice (at best) when it comes to working on cars/trucks. I've done a little bit...changed out radiators, done brake jobs (disc only), "tried" once to change out my wheel bearings but my little press (10 ton) wasn't nearly enough to do the job...but I did do the ball joints while there, changed out the rear struts/shocks (had to get help from someone with an impact wrench though. This truck is something else altogether though. They don't make parts anymore??? lol It's a 4 speed inline 6 with a heavily beaten-up body, but I love to drive it, primed/rusted hood and all. It's a short bed and I'm currently working on replacing a broken brake/clutch bracket (or assembly?). I once bought an old aluminum boat (1958) that was riveted and UGLY. Little did I know what I was getting into by deciding to spruce it up. Ended up totally stripping it, priming it (twice w/ 2 different methods), resealing every.single.rivet, painting it by hand, replacing the white oak transom (custom work) and gunnels (1x1 inside and outside...had to steam to bend), redesigning the interior and went from a tiller motor to installing a helm steering setup (replaced 33hp with 35 that had a control box for helm start/steer) and a lot more. I'm wondering if this truck will have the same effect on me. lol

Central Florida welcomes you to the club. Hopefully the truck will be more fun to tinker on then the boat was.
