    Hard Fuel Line possible adapters/connections

    Howdy, was wondering if anyone knows what kind of connection or fitting I could put on the end of this fuel line so I could go from this to a 3/8th hose. A 5/16 hose fits over it pretty snug but the 3/8th has a lot of wiggle room.

    1986 F250 HD 4x4 hubcaps

    Hi guys, been searching eBay for the original dog dish hubcaps for awhile and finally bought a great looking, non dented pair that still has all the black paint. The rear ones fit great, the front ones with the cutout for the axle are too narrow to slide over. Was there a bunch of different...

    88 7.3 f250 diesel starter going out?

    I tried to start my truck the other day and at first I heard the GP relay click once then I counted to 10 just in case they weren’t warmed up yet.
