EFI Revival! Repairing My 1989 F-150!

Today I dive into my new (to me) truck - a 1989 F-150 that I plan on daily driving! Two gas tanks meant two times the fun, I think I can take gas tanks out in my sleep now.... This truck amazes me and is so fun to drive!

  • A late '80s / early '90s F-150 with a dual-tank that has a fuel-delivery problem?! What?! That *never* happens! Honestly, I'd be surprised if it *didn't* have a fuel-delivery problem. I think they were designed to go bad at 150,000 miles.

  • That ac probably still has r12 in it which works a lot better than 134a and especially better than the new crap.

  • I couldn't stop laughing at the 10mm socket in the glove box. When I sold my dad's old '90 f150 had a 10mm socket I left in the glove box I was just forwarding it because when I bought my 99 lightning the 1st owner left a 10mm socket in the box.

  • Shop looks great you two, its almost like "legit" man! Makes you both look like you really know what you are doing, of course for those that follow your channel that myth is quickly dismissed. LOL, 😆 🤣 kidding of course your ability to get these forgotten cars and trucks to fire is legendary. Your process of elimination when troubleshooting is cool to see as a viewer lots of neat tips and tricks.

  • I got one of these three years ago, 91 F-250 with a 460. 26K original miles, still had the factory tires on it. Absolutely love it, more reliable then my half as old economy car. Keep the rust away and these run forever.

  • I'm just going to say once the Fuel system is sorted out and you do a full tune up that truck will be a tank. the fact you don't need to do anything with the A/C is a miracle. I'd check to see if the Truck's A/C is r-134a or R-12. the Motor in it is Bullet proof and as long as you can serve it properly the 89 f-150 will be around.

  • The issue of the fuel system is usually involves either the Switch in the dash or the fuel filter housing. it's usually the switch in the dash that fails(faulty OEM design). Only exception to this rule is if the truck sits for an extended amount of time then it can be everything in the fuel system needs replacing.

  • I don't know if anybody said it already but it's very common for the plastic gear on the inside of the window motor to strip out. Ford used to sell a rebuild kit for them It was so common. That's most likely what was wrong with the passenger side why would only work with no load.

  • I'm a Chevy guy. I hate Ford trucks newer than 04...but these old 85 to 96 trucks are my favorite. Especially the 95, as my dad had a 95 F150 extended cab long bed new in 95 for a company truck. The one I hated most was his 1998 F150 2wd long bed with the 4.6, towing a trailer was a mess up hills, it would just downshift and work so hard to go up the hills. The mustang motor in the trucks were not good for towing, but for just everyday driving they aren't bad. The OG 5.4 was a beast, and the 4.2 was a good motor too.

  • these old 1987-1991 brick nose trucks are getting hard to get some parts for. i love my 1988 f250. first off a word of advise for you. PLEASE GET RID OF THAT 75AMP ALTERNATOR!!!! get an alternator from a 1995 mustang 3.8 liter, its the 130 amp one and also install the 170 amp mega fuse. the 75 amp alternator and wiring to it can catch fire, also that 75 amp alternator is not enough to power everything, look on you tube about the alternator swap, its easy i promise. also move the ignition module from the distributor over to the drivers side fender like they did with the 1992-1996 trucks, ford got sued a lot in the 1980s for these 2 problems people got really hurt and some were killed for these 2 problems, these will be the best 2 upgrades you can do to save you time and money and being broke down later on. please i beg you look into these 2 upgrades, look on google to find these upgrades, i did these to my 1988 f250 and its day and nite difference in how it runs. i promise you wont be sorry
