Also transmition locked up at the same time clutch went out, and brake lines won't stay primed

Starter selenoid on right fender keeps burning up.. Also if the truck has ran and gets warm it burns up.. I've gone through 6 of them

I have a 1989 Ford F150 XLT LARIAT, but I have put I think it's a 87 Crown Victoria Transmission in it. I can't seem to get the gear linkage right, or the transmission on change out of 1st gear.

I bought a used '89 F-150 6 cyl manual. I found it had a battery drain. No blown fuses. Relays seem OK. Battery holds a charge. Repaired a burned wire coming from starter solenoid/relay. Three weeks of this and it's still not right. Of course the reserve gas tank is useless to. Avoid this nightmare if you can.

Do you drive a 1989 FORD F-150?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
