1995 Ford F-150 Lightning

Selling my dads 1995 Ford F-150 Lightning for him as he does not have Facebook. 114k miles CLEAN not a spot of rust on the truck. Has aftermarket bassani exhaust, stereo, ram air hood, bed liner, and probably a few other small things I'm forgetting. No dents or scratches truck was repainted a few years ago. Bought in Michigan but was originally a Georgia truck if I remember correctly. Selling since it only sits in the garage and need room for next project. Pm me with other questions. Don't even try to lowball, he won't take 5k for the truck so save the time of asking. I can get more pictures if you are serious but I don't have many right now.

Hey guys non L question.

94 f150 5.0l 2wd aode 263,xxx. Unmolested completely stock besides accel coil and street fire cdi box. So a mile from home the engine dies. I had commuted 30 miles more or less back home from work and hour drive in traffic. Well I pull over and immediately check for fuel pressure,and spark. Fuel is good. No spark from coil, replaced the accel coil back to oem. Still no spark so I for some reason pull the distributor cap and to my surprise the metal conductor on the rotor is broke off and I can't find it. Haven't messed with it too much after that waiting for he weekend.

I disconnected the distributor plug from harness to rule out a false/dirty connection. That is when the coil sparked. At this time I had already put the accel back and checked the oe coil for spark by undoing the connection on the distributor. They both fired everytime.

So with that basic troubleshooting can i rule out the ignition control module? I am honestly thinking it is the pick up coil that was damaged by the metal conductor.

Why does the coil fire when unplugging the dizzy?

I removed the street fire cdi box out of the equation. Same results with stock and aftermarket ignition.

    Where s the best place to find a good combo of parts for an engine build

    Where's the best place to find a good combo of parts for an engine build? I'm new to the SBF. Mine finally got it's death sentence today. Needs a bunch of gaskets and repairs that for the money seems like a better idea to just rebuild. I have a non roller block so I will probably start with a roller block. What's a good starting point that has a decent power bump for now that will work with speed density that I can add too later. I have about $3k to work with and want to build it myself. Swapped several long blocks and short blocks over the years but this will be my first ground up build.

    I'd like 300-350 at the flywheel to start and when I have the cash for a mass air swap I will go bigger. I don't want to go super cheap but I don't really need top of the line either. Going to be mostly a daily/tow rig for the mustang so I'd like to get a reasonable power gain in the process. Already have a tuner that can handle speed density so that's in place just need ideas what works well together in these trucks.

    Thanks.

      Can anybody help me with what to do with my 94 Ford Lightning I live in South...

      Can anybody help me with what to do with my 94 Ford Lightning? I live in South Florida and would love for advice from somebody local.

      It is a low mile truck I have owned it since 2007 was in great condition when I bought and then I just let it sit in my garage for years. Took it out and drove it around and blew the the head gasket. Some one told to take out the motor and refresh it.... Took it out and lost all interest in it. Now it just sits under my carport. Really wish I could get some help with this.

      Thank you in advance.

        Well summer is here and the lovely GA temps have gotten my lifters all agitated

        Well summer is here and the lovely GA temps have gotten my lifters all agitated. I'm getting some clatter at full temp in parking lots around 1500 just idling around and some times sitting in neutral idle. I currently run a 10w30 conventional. Wondering if maybe something slightly thicker would help to quiet it down. It's old and right now I'm just nursing it a little longer. A rebuild is in it's future or at the very least a high volume oil pump when I get my leaky pan gasket repaired. Just looking for input on guys that have the worn engine cheats. It's not obnoxious and I just did an oil change and got nothing shiny so I doubt it's wearing too bad yet.

        But I did also find some oil on the number one plug electrode when I installed my new distributor so I'm sure it's got leaky valve stem seals or rings.

        Any info is appreciated thanks.

                Want to see if anyone has any photos of a L with beltech springs, djm I beams and hangers in the rear. Looking to see how low it will be and what kind of ride quality. I know their isn't much suspension travel as it is what to see what others have done. Or if I need to get the factory springs back in during the I beam drop!

                  Is it common to have excessive carbon in the exhaust of these trucks? When I bought it it had bad cats and would belch black smoke on occasion. The exhaust was redone and cats were deleted but I still notice the soot. Leaves a black spot on the wall in the garage and if its cool outside the condensation from the tailpipes will have carbon flakes in it. Enough that you can see it plainly on the ground. Kinda wondering if it may have a bad O2 that took the cats out with being so rich. Not sure how to address the issue or if it is even an issue I know these older speed density setups arent all that efficient anyway. But thought I would ask. Plan to add cats back but if its this rich seems like it will just kill them again. No codes directly pertaining to O2 but it does have a code for trans range sensor out of self test range I believe it was. But odd thing is if you drive normally the CEL will stay off for a while usually comes on about halfway through my 20 mile commute to work or if I have to suddenly accelerate it sets almost immediately. Which seems odd if its truly a sensor issue seems like it would set the code pretty quick.

                        So guys running the MSD distributors has anyone had the clearance problems that I keep reading about on the 351s? As far as I can tell this motor is all stock. Someone used a cheap aftermarket and my drive gear pin sheared off. So I looked for a motorcraft but couldn't find one and settled on an MSD after many recommendations. But I've been reading that they tend to bottom out on the 351 block and cause issues. Just wondering if anything needs to be done to the distributor to avoid issues. I've heard some guys have to shave the shaft down but some say it works just fine.

                        My head is spinning on this. Just trying to get some facts.

                            Tube bumper

                            This red tube bumper is original from my 95 lightning. Was going to keep it but I going sell it. It's never been dented or bent. This bumper set under a carport three years after the Lightning was bought new in 95 and was faded pink so I had it repainted. The end caps are there two have chips in them and the license bracket is not crack or broke. I will ship this bumper at your cost. If I ship the bumper I well pull the licenses bracket and the mounting brackets and end caps and ship them in different box and I will pay for that package so the bracket does not get broke.

                            So any one needing this bumper send me the zip and I will get the price but please give me a little time to box the bumper and get the LBS of the package

                                Thanks to those that offered advice (and the forum link) to switching out the heater core. Gave the old girl a good clean out, hose flushed the entire cooling system until she was pumping clear clean water, a service she was due for. She's full of nice clean coolant now and no leaks. Back to being a nice original truck again, that runs well.

                                By the way, I asked if anybody had experienced a hunting sensation while cruising, a while back. I found while doing a vacuum inspection that the diaphragm near the heater hose inlets to the heater, was bad, so she was sucking vacuum. Running great now.

                                Still wears its original hoses and plug leads etc. Runs like a top.

                                  So after 2 1/2 years of sitting I finally got the old girl out and started in on her.

                                  I removed the AC

                                  Polished and painted the upper intake

                                  Painted the hooker headers

                                  Removed carpet and ordered black carpet

                                  Painted the nitrous bottle and interior trim strips sonic blue

                                  Trying to find a bed rug, drop I beams and trying to decide on MAF or not

                                  I have my extra engine out of my old lightning that burnt that is going to be getting a 393 stroker kit and a mild build. Then time to do body work and possibly paint it Sonic Blue.

                                  I've owned this truck for 9 years and I am stoked to finally be able to put some time and money in it

                                    So I'm going through the truck and just doing a general refresh. I'm doing oil pan gasket and front main for sure as they have pretty major leaks. So while I was in there I figured id throw an oil pump at it and timing set. Also probably replace the timing cover since I can't get this water pump to stop leaking from one edge that looks damaged.

                                    The timing covers and other parts seem readily available. But some of the brands look suspect I see LMR and rock auto have the most selection it seems for a reasonable price. Any brands you guys recommend or brands to avoid?

                                      1993 Lightning shows 214k but only has around 1500miles on built 408 w/ eagle rotating assembly, afr heads, trickflow intake, aeromotive fuel rails,42lb injectors, circle d 3k stall, lfp traction bars, longtube headers, full custom 3 in exhaust, Eds mass air conversion, Anderson PMS. I'm sure I'm leaving something out

                                      Its lowered 1 1/2 in the front with custom coils, and 2' in the rear with shakles.

                                      The wheels are OEM 99 lightning wheels with Goodyear front tires and nitto drag radial rear.

                                      Paint is ok at best. Clear has started to peel in a few places over the past few years 6.5/10 (has a new Cervinis Cowl hood not pictured & white air dam)

                                      Interior is nice. 7/10

                                      Previous owner had a sunroof professionally installed.

                                      The truck can come with an OEM center jump seat but it has been removed. For an additional $500. No I will not sell the jump seat until the truck sells.

                                          So I decided to take the lightning for a short road trip today. Made it 320miles and it died 6 miles from my house. It didn't show any symptoms or do anything weird but all of a sudden cruising at 70 it started backfiring lost all power and was shooting what appeared to be flames out the tailpipe. Didn't see it straight on just saw the glow in the passenger mirror. Any ideas what might cause this? It's getting fuel and spark and it will try to run for a few seconds at a time but it flutters around 3-400rpm on the tach no higher.

                                          It has had a code for a few weeks for the trans position sensor out of range during self test. Hasnt caused an issue so far but I have heard it has something to do with idle speed and shift points not sire if that could be causing it but odd that it started now.

                                            Alrighty guys! Getting pretty close too having it done! I'm looking into ordering mufflers within the next month. I have long tubes for it 3in collectors. I'm thinking about doing 3in pipe all the way back (unless someone has a really good reason not too). But I need suggestions for mufflers. I'm really looking at Spintech, but I'm open to other suggestions. I have super 10s now. I like a deep rumble at idle and throatiness. I don't mind some raspiness either. I've looked at dynomax among other brands of bullets as well. Really I just want to avoid sounding like every other truck with flows or glasspacks. Any suggestions are appreciated, post videos of your setups if you can!

                                            Thanks!

                                                First off thanks for everyone's input and help on my posts here. I'm finally making some progress on bringing this old girl back from the brink of death. So this week redid the entire exhaust cut out the clogged cats which after seeing my muffler guy was surprised I got away with dailying it for almost four months that way.

                                                Most of the exhaust leaks are gone but I have a slight tick at idle and going through a parking lot loaded at around 1200-1500 rpms I get a ticking sound. It's not constant though some days it will be very obvious and others I don't even notice it. Any ideas what it could be? I know these older flat tappet cams can be noisy but it's the first one I've owned so not sure if it's normal or needs further work.

                                                I'll try to get a video next time it does it but wondering if anyone had any ideas on where to look. I bought a set of felpro header gaskets that I'm going to try to swap but the header bolts look like they have never been out so I will have to wait till I have a few days time to devote to it to swap them. I'm sure they will need plenty of persuasion.

                                                Thanks for any input.

                                                  I've owned the truck since for May 2014. Selling because I bought an 03 Lightning. Southern owned, no salt corrosion. Never wrecked. Best I can tell the only panel that's ever been painted might be the driver's fender. I had mirrors and wiper arms painted due to fading. Still has original windshield with zero cracks. Has replica floor mats. Everything on the truck works properly and the truck runs strong. Timing set for mid-grade fuel. Only aftermarket items worth noting are: headunit, speakers, bed cover (tied into factory keyless entry), linex, bassani exhaust, cab and doors have been fully dynamated, trailer hitch and rear view mirror camera. I have the original mid pipes from previous owner if needed. Meticulously maintained, have a log if needed. Issues worth noting: there's a noticeable vibration at 70mph. Fades if you speed up or slow down. Wipers have some play in them. Small crack on the very top of the dash, but not very noticeable.

                                                  Call or text with other questions. Price is firm for now. Will drop if interests stalls.

                                                    Just rebuilt another Powerdyne BD11a Supercharger last night. Modified the impeller shaft to accept the "improved" style belt alignment washers. Put in a standard rebuild kit Koyo bearings and Gates HD belt. Installed it in my truck last night and tested it out. These little blowers are great and super easy to rebuild if you have the right tools. Gonna crack open the one I rebuilt last year and see how it's holding up. So far it's been great. I know these little blowers get dogged a lot but my experience with them has been fine. Thought I'd share.

                                                        Anyone have a listing of the lb rating for the different injector colors

                                                        Anyone have a listing of the lb rating for the different injector colors? Just had my exhaust redone and all of the cats were plugged up. I noticed when doing the intake gaskets that someone installed two pinkish red injectors (they are faded so not positive on color) the rest look to be tannish or possibly orange at one point. I'm getting a rich smell and it seems to flood itself at times when starting hot.

                                                        Kinda curious if someone got lazy or they tried to mask an issue with bigger injectors. I got a used set from Shaun here that I'm going to go through and rebuild but I'm curious what these are rated at and trying to figure out why they only changed two.

                                                            Has anyone ever swapped a non airbag truck to the airbags wheel? Mine is just plain worn out the center section is coming apart and the PO obviously butcherd it when it was pulled to replace something in the column. Now my question is I was more or less donated a 96 column the wheel is in excellent shape but I don't have an airbag equipped truck. I know it will physically bolt up but do I need to disable the airbag inflator in anyway or can I just leave it in there unplugged? I don't see anything with a high enough voltage to potentially short and blow it. But id rather be safe than sorry.

                                                              Stupid question...I recently purchased a '94 Lightning. The previous owner has kept it relatively stock which is what I was looking for. However, it is lowered and I HATE it contrary to most Lightning owners. My question is, what is the factory setup? It has lowered I-beams and not totally sure what else. I know that they came lowered from the factory a little which is fine, but are they Lightning specific I-beams or just stock F150s? Im not racing it or running any road courses, just want a quick street truck that I may need to drive off the pavement every once in a while if needed. Any help would be appreciated.

                                                                    Edited info with correct wheel sizes, backspacing, and tire sizes....I listed the rear wheels as being 15x10, but they are actually 15x11

                                                                    Set of Centerine Convo Pros, Style 00 (style 00 denotes Satin centers) with older Hoosier drag radials on them. I do not have the center caps and the wheels just need polishing up a little with some Mothers or an equivalent aluminum polish.

                                                                    Fronts are 15x6 with a 3-3/8 backspace with 215x60x15 street radial tires. Front wheels weigh 10 lbs each not incl tires.

                                                                    Rears are 15x11 with a 5" backspace with Hoosier Quick Time Pro drag radials 28x14.50x15. Rear wheels weigh 12 lbs each not incl tires.

                                                                    $500 for the set and not willing to take a dime less. The rear wheels alone are over $300 each so I consider $500 complete to be very fair. Not interested in separating fronts from rears. Not interested in shipping them anywhere unless the buy agrees to pay for shipping. These are for 96-below Ford F-150 trucks with 5x5.5 lug pattern

There is 18,000 miles on the engine since it was rebuilt and 8,000 on transmission since it was rebuilt. The truck has all new brakes all the way around and new ball joints. I had it inspected in August and its mechanly 100%. There is 141000 on the clock. The truck also has a stainless steel brake line kit. I am asking $5500 for I it. I have way more invested. I only accept cash and will not ship the truck. Call If interested 724-777-3076 no text will not negotiate price over the phone. I have new cab corners and extra door panels and airdam that go with the truck.

I bought the truck with a blown intake gasket and just got the truck running. The trans doesnt shift unless I manually shift it, and it seems as though it only has 2nd and 3rd gear.

                                                                        My question is, Will a non-electronic AOD trans from a mustang work? The reason I ask is because I found one that has just been freshened up, and has a new 2800 stall for $500.

                                                                        My plan is to get the truck running well, and sell it, but I dont want to hack it, or put a ton more cash into it.

                                                                        THANKS

This is a really cool design where it actually is 2 fuel pumps in one case. Perfect for the street where a high flow pump isn't needed, but is capable of fueling 1000hp when you need it. This is roughly the equivalent of the A1000. Retail is like $360. Its not big enough for where my build has ended up, so how about $300 plus shipping.

                                                                                I will be changing my fuel system setup, so I will be selling most of my old setup. It consists of an aeromotive a1000 that was just recently remanufacured by aeromotive. Includes the 100 micron and 10 micron pre and post filter. Sumped factory tank with a 10an feed to the pump to a 10an to a y block which goes to 2 8an lines to the back of the fuel rails. The rails are not included. The tank also has a drain built into the sump. Also included is a bracket that the a1000 and filters are mounted to. The bracket is just below the sump so it gets a good gravity feed. I will also include a 6an return line that comes from the fuel pressure regulator. Regulator is not included. I will also a struckby fuel pump relay kit. Fuel sender will not be included either. Price is 750 obo. This will not be taken off my truck untill spring time. Just figured I would post to see if there is interest. I'm located in South jersey and would ship on buyers dime. Pic for attention.

It is an E4OD w/ Shift Kit and Moroso Deep Pan that has a provision for an Autometer temp gauge which I will also include. Mileage on the truck is 139k. I am not sure if it was rebuilt but I can say that the fluid is very clean and it shifted perfectly for the last two years that I've owned the truck. I would prefer local pick up if possible but I would be willing to ship if buyer pays freight. Price is $750 OBO or would be willing to do partial trade for Gen 1 Bassani headers/front pipe.

I'm redoing my complete exhaust here soon because it's just plain worn out. So I want to compile a list of long tubes that work on these trucks without mods to the frame rails. I'm searching now but most places don't really know or have never even heard of these trucks and I've pretty much exhausted all my leads here.

                                                                                      I'm hoping I'm not chasing some mythical creature with this if so I guess I'll get a good set of shorties.

So I went to my local farm and fleet and bought cheap bolts. But unfortunately they wouldn't go in more than 2 threads. Naturally I did what any sensible person would do, covered them in red loctite and rammed them in with my impact til they snapped off LOL!

                                                                                        Is there any other thread these holes could've possibly been? It was really tight trying to get them in with a ratchet, felt cross threaded even though they definitely weren't. Not that it matters much now, just curious.

                                                                                            Well my plan for a performance build fell through due to budget issues. So what's the best place to get a long block for these trucks that will sell to an individual? I've been checking around and only found one or two actual lightning longblocks. Want something with a decent warranty if possible. Also looking to collect parts need a matching set of injectors and I can't seem to find any o rings for the injectors or the fuel line to fuel rail connection o rings.

                                                                                            I personally hate Jasper I can get one through a buddies shop from them but I put four of their piles of crap in the same truck once for repeat bearing issues under warranty. Want this to be quick and painless as it's going to be my daily.

                                                                                            Thanks for any input.

                                                                                              Hey guys quick question. What alternator upgrade options are there? I've started noticing mine can't keep up at idle. Everything in the cab dims down at stop lights when I have the lights and AC on. I plan to add an amp and small sub at some point and not sure the 95amp will keep up. Can I go to a 130amp on the stock wiring? It would be temporary I'm ordering the larger cables from Ed next month but the alternator is going now and can't really afford the cables until refunds and bonus next month. Just don't want to start any fires in the meantime.

                                                                                              %d comments

                                                                                                Alright so I've been having an oil loss problem since I've owned the truck. I've replaced valve cover gaskets intake gaskets PCV and screen (It didn't have a screen when I bought it and the valve was completely shot). Also deleted the oil cooler because I was seeing traces in the coolant. All of this has slowed it down but it's still consuming oil pretty good. It never smokes and doesn't seem to be down on power and the oil turns dark pretty quick but it doesn't smell like gas so I'm not ready to condemn the rings just yet. Is there anywhere else I can look that will lose oil? There is some oil on the pan and transmission but I never see a drop hit the ground. Kind lost on this one.

                                                                                                Sorry for the long post but I've already tried a lot of stuff so just wanted to give plenty of info.

Seen serveral availible, just checking which has been used and fits correctly? Changing out fuel rail and injectors, so therefor the new fuel rail lines are 8AN that need to hook up to the stock fuel lines that come from the rear tank.

                                                                                                  has anybody used this one?

                                                                                                  What I am I trying to void is cutting the original fuel lines that come from the tank. When I had my truck built, the guys did a terrible job and cut up lines used clamps ect...don´t want to do the same to this truck.

                                                                                                    I installed a Ford Taurus fan last weekend. It seems to move good air but slightly noisy. I have it on high speed. Not sure I like how it looks either. It's a 16" fan I centered it over the radiator and put foam tape strips on the shroud where it contacts the radiator. Figured I'd at least give it a try, worst case is I'll put the mechanical one back on. I still have to mount the T-stat and hide wires. Just using a simple Flex-a-lite adjustable controller with sensor in radiator down by the lower radiator hose. Seems to get hot there first.

                                                                                                        Where is the best place to buy door mouldings? It's been pouring the last few days and my carpet is wet at the bottom of the door only about an inch into the cab. Not sure if it's rear window leaking or cargo light or door seals. I had the rear window issue on my ranger and it soaked the whole back wall I'm not seeing any of that.

                                                                                                        But I have looked around at lmc and LMR and bronco graveyard as well as summit. I see mixed reviews on like every one of them. What's the best brand and are there any complete kits? I noticed some water inside my doors when I changed my speakers so I want to do the vent window seals and the main glass seals (not sure of official name of them).

                                                                                                        Any help or pointing towards a write up somewhere is appreciated. Thanks.

                                                                                                          Any 5.4 guru's here? Need to get a daily and I really want a Tacoma, though I keep considering a full size. My issue is I don't trust the 5.4. To many stories and have had friends go through them. I'd also rather not go to the dark side and own a bow tie, but honestly the 5.3 is a proven motor although there have been other known issues behind it.

                                                                                                          In short, are there any certain years that the 5.4 was known to be better? Anything I should be aware of? My price range is around 15k so looking at around 2010 and older.

Both of these have been together since the factory and are still going strong at 167000 miles. Motor comes with a Motor sports mass air conversion and a Bassani Nascar stye exhaust system (ceramic coated headers) also in great shape. The engine also comes with a MSD 6AL. Engine also has a new water pump and a new double core radiator. There's more if you're interested we'll talk. Oh and to fascilitae delivery I got a 1993 ford lightning wrapped around all these parts (all new brakes , rear wheel cylinders and brakes lines and all new ball joints). It'll make it to wherever you're going with a smile on your face.
