Thanks guys. I found a replacement master cylinder. 1980 f150 2wd was a direct replacement.

I'm not sure what exactly is needed for ac. There is a complete unit under the dash. And the compressor has been repainted. There is no belt on it however. I am assuming I will need to update it to modern coolant as well.

The truck has no heater core in it. I am going to have to figure that out and get something in it it just for the defrost ability.

The truck stops well. Seems to have plenty of power. All in all a good base for a fun truck. Nothing crazy planned. Just want to make it reliable and continue to play with it.

Been driving the truck for the past few days. Loving it. Runs good. Getting a fuel smell in the cab that needs to be addressed. Found out that the steering box is leaking. So I need to either rebuild that or replace. Stops and acceleration is good though. The full length headers to cherry bombs is a bit much. I need to figure out how to get the exhaust out farther. It just ends 6 inches behind the cab.

Thanks! I'm starting to do research on the fuel tank to under the bed.

Changed the oil in it. Made a big difference in oil pressure. Still battling a leaking steering box. Was hoping the leak stop for a steering system would get it to stop but no luck. On the hunt for a steering box.



Also used it to take the dirt bike out to a little trail for some seat time.

Winter came and it has been driven much. When it's cold the trans is slipping some. Once it's warm it seems fine. I go back and forth between keeping it and selling it.

The trans is going to be rebuilt at some point. If I keep it fresh trans and new glass will happen. Tomorrow I will probably drive it and remember how much I love it
