Here is a noobie quest
I have a Noobie question.
The highway
I have a 1965 Ford F250, manual 4 on the floor. While driving the truck there is no issues i had the truck up to 75 mph on the highway, when I stop the engine dies, it does not stutter just dies, while in reverse I can drive backwards and stop and the engine does not die.

I found a 3-4 inch crack in the exhasut manifold would that cause it to die or my other ideal is the carb needs to rebiuld. What do you thing the issuse is??


Thank you


Tony

I am thinking it is might have something to do with the computer or maybe the trans is not popping out of gear which might cause the truck to shut-off.

I like to correct all known problems before starting with trouble shooting. It can save a lot of time and repeated steps. As for your engine dying, could be the carburetor float is set too low. You don't say what engine you have, but most '65 F-250's had the 352 V8 with an Autolite 2100 2v carb.. A quick stop could uncover the jets causing the engine to die. Typically this is more often seen on a replacement Holley carb and wasn't a big problem with the original Autolite .

Good luck.

Does is die after going forward at slower speeds, for example from stop light to stop light under 25 mph?
