Hello everybody. I am new to the board here because I actually don't own a ford
. I am somewhat mechanically inclined and have done extensive work on my Subaru
STi and a Mitsu Evo.
Long story short is that I have friend who is going through really tough times due to the economy and his F-150
has been sitting in his driveway not running for a year now because the starter is shot. At this point he really needs his truck
fixed. I know that it is a 1999 F-150 but am not sure of what motor he has (do they all use the same starter?).
Unfortunately I hadn't talked to him for a while and I didn't know his situation until his wife told me everything.
Well, I want to go about fixing this for him because he simply can't swing it to take it to somebody to get it running again.
What I need to know is where I can buy the starter for the cheapest price (like I said I don't know Fords so am unsure of where to buy parts at the best price). If somebody could hook me up with the part number and a good website where I could pick it up that would be great. A rebuilt part would also be suitable.
Also, what tools do I need to replace the starter. He does not have tools so I would be taking my tools to his house to get this done. It would help if I could get the wrench and socket sizes I might need as well as any special tools.
If anybody has a link to a walkthrough that would be great!
Thanks in advance
