Up for sale is my 1997 ford f250 this truck is a great truck im trying to be as honest as possible so there is no confusion with the listing. I've owned this truck for many years and always took good care of it I recently (last feb) bought a new f350 so I no longer need it the truck has been sitting since I feel it's a shame for it to go unused so hopefully it finds a good home


The good :
New exhaust manifolds one yr ago 
4x4 works well
Heat works well
Ac works well
Trans shifts smooth 
Fires right up 
Brake box in cab 
Clean interior 
Never abused
tires are in good shape 
New water pump
Some new brake lines 
New pads 
New timing chains 
New front main seal 
New fuel filter 
Comes with bed tool box
Plow set up 

What it needs: 

Front driver side brake caliper 
Needs driver side window installed (window comes with sale) 
Starter solenoid went bad so I bypassed it with a push button start
Rear fuel pump stopped working (has two tanks) the front fuel pump works 
Could use a tune up the engine fires right up and purrrrs like a kitten but when u give it throttle it brakes up and hesitates I assume from sitting
The plow pump needs to be bolted up and wiring must b ran blade has rust spots (comes with e47 Meyers pump and wiring)


I think that's it if I think of anything else ill update and edit the listing as you can see the truck doesn't need that much a couple bucks and a weekend in the garage should do it perfect for someone handy this truck is being sold as is buyer is responsible for pick up or delivery I would recommend trailering it do to the brake caliper 

ive included a bunch of pics so u can really see the overall vehicle condition any questions or for other pics please just ask thanks and good luck.. a little later i will be posting a link to a youtube video so u can hear the engine run ect...

Nuclear-powered concept cars from the Atomic Age

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 12:31:00 EST

In the 1950s and early 60s, the dawn of nuclear power was supposed to lead to a limitless consumer culture, a world of flying cars and autonomous kitchens all powered by clean energy. In Europe, it offered the then-limping continent a cheap, inexhaustible supply of power after years of rationing and infrastructure damage brought on by two World Wars.
The development of nuclear-powered submarines and ships during the 1940s and 50s led car designers to begin conceptualizing atomic vehicles. Fueled by a consistent reaction, these cars would theoretically produce no harmful byproducts and rarely need to refuel. Combining these vehicles with the new interstate system presented amazing potential for American mobility.
But the fantasy soon faded. There were just too many problems with the realities of nuclear power. For starters, the powerplant would be too small to attain a reaction unless the car contained weapons-grade atomic materials. Doing so would mean every fender-bender could result in a minor nuclear holocaust. Additionally, many of the designers assumed a lightweight shielding material or even forcefields would eventually be invented (they still haven't) to protect passengers from harmful radiation. Analyses of the atomic car concept at the time determined that a 50-ton lead barrier would be necessary to prevent exposure.

Ford worker files for UAW dues refund, stirs right-to-work debate

Sun, 24 Aug 2014 08:57:00 EST

Let's start with some history: Ford's Dearborn truck plant, part of the company's massive River Rouge complex, was the center of a strike in 1941 that led to Ford signing the first "closed shop" agreement in the industry. The agreement obliged every worker at the plant to be a dues-paying member of the United Auto Workers. In December 2012, however, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder signed legislation making Michigan a right-to-work state, which outlawed closed shops. The new law gave workers the right to opt out of union membership and stop paying dues even if they were still covered by union activities like collective bargaining. For employees at the Dearborn plant, the right-to-work clauses take effect at the end of their current contract in 2015.
As a tool-and-die maker at Ford's Dearborn plant for 16 years, Todd Lemire pays dues to the UAW - about two hours' salary per month. However, he's been unhappy with the UAW's support of the Democratic party, and not wanting to wait until next year to be out of the UAW entirely he invoked his Beck Rights, which state that a non-member of a union does not have to pay dues to support non-core activities, such as political spending. But Lemire wasn't happy that Ford still subtracted the total amount of dues, with the UAW reimbursing the difference, so he filed suit with the National Labor Relations Board, feeling that the workaround violates his rights.
Lemire's case is just a week old, so it could be a while before a resolution. Yet, as September 15, 2015 draws near and the right-to-work laws take full effect for Michigan workers - and others wonder whether it could help revitalize the state's manufacturing base - a case like this adds more fuel to the discussion.
