i recently bought a 1985 f250 6.9turbo 4x4 w/4spd and there are a couple things that are wrong with it that i have no idea what they are.
1. i tried starting it today when it was cold and that glow plug light kept flashing on and off and i heard the controller clicking but it would start until my dad sprayed starting fluid
. is this the glowplugs or the controller?
2. is there any kind of clamp or something that goes on the exhaust side of the turbo to the downpipe because it is smoking out of the exhaust side around the edge of the downpipe.
3. when i was tryin to start it, it quit turning over witht the key. i had the clutch in and all that and it still wouldn't work even after we tightened some wires so we had to start it by using a screwdriver in the start solenoid to get it to turn over. what could cause this?
4. this is the worst. when ever you have the truck in gear and the clutch all the down, it keeps pulling. if you don't hold the brake to the floor, the truck will go like you let out halfway on a good clutch. then to get into first or reverse, you have to shut the truck off to get it in\out of gear. is this the clutch or the slave cylinder?
any advise is appreciated.
