I will be corrected if I'm wrong, but there is not specific section for the X series Fords.
If you have any questions, just ask.
A more relevant section might be the Garage, depending on what your question refers to.
Some good advice regarding the old rockets:
1. If it's got little or no rust, then you've got a pearler!!! Rust is the number one killer of these cars, mechanically they will last a million years.
2. Contrary to popular opinion, the door handles DO work, but need their fair share of maintenance. Door hinges need adjustment on the odd occaision, and the most important bit.
USE THEM PROPERLY AND THEY WON'T BREAK!!!
People try to rip the whole door open, and they will just die.
Lift the handle, the door latch will release, and you can open the door. Simple really!!
3. Only real mechanical drama's will be in the front end, mainly with ball joints, tie rod ends, and the pitman and idler arms..
All suffer wear and tear, but by purchasing better than average items, you won't have to touch the front end again for 100,000 klms..
I have other bits of info to offer, just ask!!
