    My dad is giving me a 1990 Ford F250 for free cause he no longer needs it for his buisness. the truck just got a new 4 speed tranny, and the 5.8 V8 was rebuilt. Only problem with it is that one of his workers got a key broke off in the igintion so that needs to be fixed. any idea how much it shoudl cost? also, how much on average are used Plows with hydrolic controls?

    My dad broke off his key in his van. It costed $30, and he had new keys for the ignition, so they don't work on the door, trunk, etc.

    However, I think you can get matching keys for like, $60?

    You can use a 6-8' plow on that 3/4 ton. They don't come cheap, even used. A complete good plow system would (Meyer, Western, Fisher) set you back $1000-$2000. New systems, well over $3000. Unless you got some connections.

    You said an F-250 in the original post. That'd be a 3/4 ton. If it was an 1 ton, it'd be an F-350. Doesn't make much difference plowing, really.

    Yes the 1990 is a TTB set up. TTB is Ford's version of the Independant Front Suspension. If you ever plan on lifting the truck, TTB is a big piece of shit in my opinion ( I own 2 trucks with it, a 87 F-150 4x4 and a 88 F-250 Heavy Duty 4x4).....If it is a Heavy Duty F-250 it is the 1 ton payload. For the 4wd to work, you lock in the hubs, then you shift the transfer case (smaller shifter to the left of the stick) into either 4 high or 4 low....if you are on dry ground but need an extra low gear ratio, leave the hubs in the free position and shift the T-case into 4 low....this will basically make it rear-low....also, the key is unbelievable easy to fix. Get a small, round piece of metal like the end of a file. Turn the key to the on position, then at the base of the ignition there is a little hole, right in front of the wheel (on your side); press the button in that hole with the piece of metal and pull the key and cylinder out of the ignition. If you can't get the broken key out, go to Auto Zone and buy a new key and cylinder ( I believe it is 20 bucks) slide it back in there and you are good as new

    also, if you don't plan on starting a good plowing business (try to get clientell before you go buy it), don't waste your money on the plow. It will do nothing but increase the wear and tear on the truck significantly and hurt you pocket book (that extra weight is a bitch on Fuel economy) Also, find a field or something and drive it for 10 hours total every month in 4 wheel drive, and make sure that you keep your front diff full of gear lube. It doens't nesecarilly tear anything up driving with the hubs locked in (I usually keep mine locked if it is snowing in case I slide off into a ditch I can shift right into four wheel drive) But it does make your gas mileage total shit. The 351 ( I am assuming it is a small block Windsor) is a bad ass motor. If you ever want to do any minor engine mods i have learned that most "Bolt on" parts for the windsor are interchangable with those of a 302 which are very abundant amongst the Stangers. Just research anything and everything before you do it. and if you have any questions about the truck, PM me.
