Summary:

Feels right

Faults:

Replaced fuel pump with elec, but re-fitted it after finding a gasket in the fuel tank was the culprit, blocking pickup.

Replaced the headlights with flat bright ones.

Power steering pump was out of line; fitted with one from a Bronco. No F Series to 80 had power steering here..

No brake adjusters on the rear.

General Comments:

Best truck built, ease of repair, easy to work on, heaps of interchangeable parts.

It can pull, tow and carry anything.

Somebody should import more older trucks to Australia. Pre. 80 Rangers, 250 4x4, 350 4x4 live (solid) front axle, not i.f.s. crap.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
