Default 1993 Ford F250 with a 460 Big Block V8

Hey Everybody,
Recently, I purchased a 1993 Ford F250 to have a beat around, mudboggin, work truck. The truck has a 7.5L (460ci) Big Block V8. It is an extended cab with the 8ft bed. I bought it with what I believe is a 4" lift and a firestone airbag suspension kit for the rear axle. It has 169,657 miles on the odometer. I have a few problems though and I hope y'all can help me solve them. The first issue I have with the truck is the dipstick tube. The previouse owners must have broke it and did a quick fix and didnt repair it correctly. When you pull it out its fine, but its a pain to put back in. Of you have any pics of the dipstick tube or how long the dipstick should be will be fine. On to the next question, I hear a slight whistle when i accelerate, but I have been told it is a vacuum line. Bigger engines tend to blow them easier than smaller engines, do you agree??? Today I had some free time and decided to go break it in and have some fun. I live on a road that is in the middle of nowhere, so I decided to go see how quick it goes from 0 to 60, out of curiosity. I clocked a 11.1 0 to 60 run twice, but I was disturbed by the transmission. I believe it was between 2nd and 3rd gears, when it shifted, It felt like it missed the shift. It felt like it was shifing late. This wasthe first time it did it, it has not done this in normal driving. One last question... Did these year model trucks have issues with the stock ford radio/cassette players??? I have noticed that at random times it will just cut off and reset itself. It will lose power for minutes. I have been told it might be a bad ground on the connetion, but Im not sure. Well thanks for reading and thanks for your replys!!!

Welcome man, nice looking trucks.

As far as the radio goes, I havent had any problems with the 90s Ford radios, probably a grounding problem, or you can get another for $10-$20 on ebay.

Just my luck, last night I was driving this truck uptown, and stopped at the red light and noticed steam start to flow out of the hood and grill. I pulled into the gast station and popped the hood. Didnt notice any fire/smoke. I drove it back to the house (1/2 mile away) and parked it. I poped the hood and took a look. What I found.... The thermastat locked up, the hose between it and the water pump busted, draining my radiator, causing to lock the water pump up. This put strain on the pulley and power steering. When I turned in to the driveway I almost missed, I had lost all power steering. Now i gotta spend my accesory money on repairs!!!!
