Unhappy Took The '89 Up The Mountain

Went on a 4 day camping trip to a spot in the Bighorn mountains about 150 miles away. Trip started out rather rough but ended up good. I was pulling a 30' camper up an 8% grade with lots of hairpin turns when the power steering went out on the truck. The bearing on the tensioner pulley for the power steering froze and burned the belt off. I looked like popeye when I got the truck to the destination.

Fortunately the Ford dealership 60 miles away had the whole tensioner assembly. The parts guy(older) said the computer did not show a tensioner for an '89 Ford with a 460 engine. He said, "That's bullshit", and grabbed the manual where he located the part number. The whole assembly was $85.

The return trip turned out much better.

Doc, he's from out west where you came from. So I guess he's a tough guy too.
Unlike that western canuck we know.


Glad you had a good trip

Thank you! The guy was really good to deal with. I told him I also had a '78, and he said, "Oh, I can't wait to drag out the manual for that one." I just found a new ford dealer. As the saying goes, the salesman sells the first car. The service/parts dept. sells the second car.
