Hey guys, I firgured that I would ask a couple questions and let some of u know what i have so far. I just got a 97 f250 with the 7.3 and i love the thing even though i was never really a ford fan. I got it from a close friend's family. it was their family truck so everyone wanted to drive it but noone wanted to pay for the maintenance when it was needed. It only has 116k on it with a 5 speed.
Well, off the start it was obvious that it needed the upper ball joints, and 2 lug nuts, and of course tires. but that hasnt been something i can even mess with yet because the day i brought it home, it started blowing brake lines. I fixed the first two without a problem. what is giving me hell is the clutch line between the master and slave cyl for the trans.
I first only replaced the line but i could not get the thing to bleed out to give me any clutch movement. so after my friend stripped the bleed screw threats off the slave i got a new one. I put it on and have movement in the fork now, but i still cant seem to get enough movement of the clutch to really drive it, its only at the point i can get it around the driveway. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have already gotten so much from looking over this site but this is my first post. Thanks in advance guys
