RE: Old vs. New
ANYBODY HAVE ANY IDEAS? I am guessing the 6spd is junk as for the newer fords and I will but the 89 back together and drive it with pride with better fuel milage then the boys with thier V 10 and their 7.3 Dieselsand getting the same hp and close to the same torque, not being left on the side of the road with the diesel 6.0 as they have the most lawsuits on that motor,and I know my front end will not be weak as for the rest of the drivetrain. I do not see aftermarket parts for the 89 helping make it strongerbecause it was strongfrom the factory and it rides nicer them my friends 2002 F-250 which has less springs and spring rate and has spent more times at the dealership for recalls then his own driveway. My question has been answered. The 89 F-350 with 7.5 and 5spd is a much better and stronger ride and has less rust then the newer models.
