It should have power steering, if it doesn't, you may be able to get the local high school to change it over if they have an auto mechanics class...

That's a good plan. I have a 1984 f-250. Sorry about your grandfather, but, plan on spending a little cash on the truck.

I've replaced most all of the external things.....starter, alternator, belts, hoses, brakes, shocks, tires, fuel tank, tie rod ends etc.

The good thing about old fords is the parts are relatively cheap. I think my power steering pump was somewhere around 25 bucks.

I figure I've got somewhere around $3500 in parts sunk into mine, and the labor was mine.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

I talked to him and he told me it should have it. He told me how to look and see if it does, and how to fix what's broke possibly. I might can even get it in as a project for the class, and get the labor free and only have to pay for parts :)
