The swivel makes it easier to clear the firewall. Not really any higher than 13 on the highway. Simply depress the leaver and slide the cylinder out of its bracket. While looking at the clutch housing from the underside of the truck you will see a leaver and the slave cylinder. Set the gap on the new plugs to whatever it says on your emissions decal on the radiator support. The best tank was 13. There are three 10mm head bolts that hold it on.
Without the trailer, it's right around 10. After you finish installation be sure to bleed the clutch system. If you can't get them most of the way in by hand with the hose take a look and see why not. Mpg will fall with Sunoco every time. With the trailer on for the whole tank, it will be roughly 8. The replacement will have a strap on it to keep the cylinder from extending until it is in place. The same truck, well an 06 supercab with the 6.
It makes the job way less painful. There are several types of transmissions for the 1989 F-150. So you change the oil and filter and top it off at 8 qts. And it seems every one of these trucks has it's own personality, so what works for me might not work for you. In some cases you will have to remove the feed line until the system is primed. I've done enough of these that I can replace the plugs in approximately 45 minutes but don't be surprised if the first time you do it takes a few hours.
If you sleep better with the dipstick reading full, ok. Replace in reverse order of removal and then cut the strap. After that just put everything back together in reverse order. The threads in the aluminum heads have enough problems as it is. Next you can actually remove the plugs.
Wow thats significantly higher than recommended! Cross threaded plug threads are no fun! I take an old piece of seat foam and put it on top of the radiator support to the engine to allow me to lay on it without hurting my tummy. In other words, you aren't but a few blocks at most from the next stop sign or light. Most replacement slave cylinders come with instructions in the box so if you have further questions you should refer to those instructions. And its just getting broken in, should get closer to 20 once it gets over 10-15k miles on it. Oil disapears no oil in driveway, no smoke where it goes is any one's guess.
Carefully start the plugs in their holes. I have an 02 F250 reg cab 2wd 5. One of the planes I fly will hold 12 qts but that would be a waste since it just blows it out. Whatever works best for you is good. That is almost entirely in-town driving since everything seems to be in-town now.
The dipsticks will show full at say 8 qts. When the stick says it's at 8, I add a quart to make it 9. . On the highway, it would probably be a little better. If you are working on an 89 F-150 with a 5 speed manual transmission and a 300 straight six you have to remove the transmission. In the model that I used the strap also provided a cushion for the joint so it stayed in place.
And although it runs great on Chevron 87, it drinks it. This variety has an external slave cylinder and can be replaced without removing the transmission. After a while you learn to just top it off at 6. Don't be surprised if there is rust and junk in them. The more common type is for a 4 speed manual transmission. On a side note, my truck is the most finicky about what gas goes in of anything I have ever owned.
Next remove the brace from the power steering reservoir to thermostat housing. It runs very well at 9 and can be ran all the way down to 4. You may also want to move the leaver the slave is connected to back and forth several times to get any air pockets out. Apply a small amount of anti-seize to the threads only on the spark plug. Kinda like the hot dog companies and the hot dog bun companies. A couple hours of flying and it's down to 6.
I end up puting 7 quarts in and adding a Quart at about the 2000 mile mark. I don't think anyone can give you an exact number for what kind of mileage you will get, but knowing these things will help. The plugs are way down in the hole which is why I use the extension then the swivel. I've replaced plugs on quite a few 5. Your engine can't read the dipstick though and only knows when there is too much crankcase pressure or there is foaming from the crank splashing the oil. Apply some dielectric grease to the plug boots as well to help seal them.
