April 9, 2005I'm being given an '83 F250 diesel, and (obviously) it needs some work. It's got an automatic trans in it now, with less than 1500 miles on it, but it's been sitting around for at least 5 years now.
Now, as part of the work I"ll be doing to it, I need to pull the cab off anyway, so I was wondering if I shouldn't maybe just try to get rid of the autotragic. The pickup will be used as my snowplow rig, as well as pulling a trailer (not terribly often, but 1000+ mile trips when it does).
I'm open to any suggestions/ideas at this point.
Thanks in advance!
