    I just scored a free 1970 Ford F250 Ranger XLT 2wd with a non running 390, 4spd, rear D60, and a pretty damn straight body! He isn't sure why id doesn't run...said it just died on the highway one day and it has been sitting by his garage for the last 2 years.
    I LOVE dragging home free crap!!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    I am hoping to go tow it home this week and I will post up a pic or 2!

    I am hoping to make this into a CHEAP rig that I can haul crap w/ and tow the boat and car trailer. Good thing is it already has a hitch and stuff on it, and the 4spd will help too!

    holy crap what a score... even if you just ended up parting out it, keeping a few parts you wanted and junking the rest its still a hella good deal. gj! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I just did an engine swap in a 70 F-150 XLT 2wd for a guy I know Has a 390 4 speed and a 5 lug Dana 60 (trust Me it was). I put in an extra 390 I had. The only b!tch was it had headers but other than that It was a piece of cake and it runs sweet. Very good smooth power.

    Duracrapped out? /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif Just check for spark first. Then back track to the electric ignition control (Duraspark) to see where the problem is. Good chance it was the Duraspark module if it just dropped dead.

    Free is my majic # too when I am buying /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif
