90's F-250 questions

Does anyone have a manual for a 97 F250 or similiar (older body style) that they could scan or copy for me? I just got the truck, but no books came with it.
Thanks

Alan, I have a '97 F150 and a '98 F150. If I'm not mistaken, the owner's manual is for BOTH weight classes. You live close enough that you could come help me put the belly pan back on tomorrow and we could could make a run to Office Depot for a copy.

Seriously, I'll check tonight when I get home and let you know.

Jim

Alan,
I have one when I get the chance I will copy it for you. Also check around in the salvage yards, quite often you can get on there. I have been given them before when buying other odds and ends.

You can try the ford website. It may take a little digging but I know they have owners manuals and towing guides in there. I have electronic copies for my 04 F-250 on my laptop.

Michelle,
I went thru the rigamarole of signing up and then it tells me I am not authorized to access that page ...go figure I love pdf manuals, especially the good ones that you can search and link to stuff in them. Eventually I plan on buying the Adobe software to convert a bunch of my print manuals. I have about a dozen that I would love to get done.

Aaron

Alan,
Mine is a 96 and takes 14 quarts on an oil change. Also find out what brand of oil the PO was using. And whatever you do don't mix brands if you add oil in between oil changes. FWIW I use Rotella on all of our diesel stuff around here. We buy it by the pallet For the PSD I use 3 gallons and 2 quarts. We usually buy a whole skid of gallons, then a couple of cases of quarts for the odd numbers and to add between changes. We have 7 diesel vehicles on site here. I will work on the scanning this week for you.

Aaron

thanks! Unfortunately the po is not able to be contacted, and I had to add a quart yesterday. I used Rotella and figure I will change the whole thing this week, Wally world has the motorcraft filters on the shelf.
I did lube the steering points and greased every hinge and so on.

One other newbie truck guy question. Mine has the towing pkg with trans cooler and all, the rear bumper being that sold steel massive item with holes in it for tow ball. Can I use that with a ball for my Sovereign or do I stll need a receiver hitch?
Sure seems strong enough, but want to be safe and sure.

Alan,
I use either the Fleet Pride filters or the Napa Gold. Motorcraft should be okay if you can find them. Got a picture of the back bumper? It may be a Class V rated...mine is, however I wanted to be able to use the sway control feature and the adjustability of my normal hitch head. So I found a receiver that would fit. I wanted a Class V receiver but unfortunately no one makes one that will fit my 96 with the 10" deep drop cowbow bumper. Putnam used to and still lists one but the replacement number hitch doesn't extend far enough out. So I ended up with a Class IV rated at 800/8000 as a straight hitch and 1200/12000 as a WDH.

Aaron

I like the searchable feature as well. I will see if I can get it.
