I needed a truck for a few jobs right away.
I looked around and couldnt find any Fords that would work for me so i had to buy a Chevy Shitbox.

I cant hardly believe it, but actually it drives and runs pretty decent.
Its got a 454 in it , I wonder what my gas bills going to be?

It doesnt seem to bad so far.
It came from out your way didnt it?

zukibuggy ,do you know the guy that used to own it?
If so can you ask him how to switch between the fuel tanks and if the guages work on both of them?

My old 3500hd 454 wasn't exactly great on fuel but it had a 16ft long 7ft tall box on it.
I had to replace the alternator every year as it got too hot and fried. Had voltage problems with the starter when it was hot (wouldn't start) had to wire in a ford starter solonoid and build a better heat shield for the starter. (this fixed the starting problems)...and the windshield wipers sucked from new....
Other than that the front ends are a bit weak, had to do king pins regularly on mine.
I worked the truck hard but maintained it very well and still went through 3 engines and one trany in about 350,000k.

there is a small pump between tanks on the truck. so it always pumps fuel into the front tank.
