no power in reverse
ok i have been told that a ford 4.9 (300 straight 6cyl ) will pull a house down, lots ot pulling power: this is what i have heard from a lot of true blue oval owners say and even that forigen vechile owners say ( chevy people ),, that the ford 6 cyl has house pulling power and torque,, i have replaced my clutch once already. but it still has no balls while towing something in reverse, meaning when ever i am hooked up to either my boat ( about 2g`s in weight ) or my camper ( 5,500# ) when i put it in reverse i lose all torque in motor for pushing it. but towing it forwards i have no problem what so ever..
now it has a brand new clutch and pressure plate, release bearing, pilot bearing and clutch, master cyl. hydraulic line to centrific slave cly. ( has no mechanical linkage )..
and was told that my catalic converters can be clogged,.
taking a chance and replacing them tommorow. and was also told that since i didnt have flywheel resurfaced ( looked in good shape ) didnt think it needed resurfaced,, that that can cause my no power in reverse and causing me to smoke the clutch in reverse while trying to back up ..
this is in a 1989 fullsize broncoxlt with about 92-93,000 actule miles with a 5 spd tranny,,
now i know a 6cly doesnt compare to a 8cly but for total spent on purchase and new shocks on all 4 corners along with new brakes all the way around along with caipers, rubber brake lines and wheel cyl total spent was less then 1,500 and truck has excelent intior and needs only 4 holes patched,, and i add a bottle of berryman injector cleaner with every oil change.. every 3,500 miles tune ups every 6,500 miles
any help will be greatly appercited,, thnx blackbroncoxlt
