1975 is the break for no smog.
timing is a free fix. on those f150s carbon locks up the egr valve, you just pop it off and shove a pick or something in there to break it up. vacuum leaks are easy, but running rich at the same time? id check the injectors or fpr.
but, if nox, 02, and hc's are elevated, its likely a bad cat.

yea but i'm glad i didn't get it. it was a pos after a couple days of thinking about it. i wouldn't even been able to drive it right off the bat. thats not what i'm after. i want to drive it not let it sit due to the previous owner not giving a crap about it. I decided anyways to get a 97-03 f150 ex-cab 5.4 white or silver nothing else or less. has to be a 5.4 not no 4.6 waste of a motor from ford. It has to be ex-cab not single not double. And it has to be white or silver with under 100,000 miles. I've seen already 5 on the net but they have already sold. I'm getting closer to one. Its a waiting game to find one

I would have bought it, and made the repairs.

People in cali don't know the chance they have to have access to older models that aren't totally rusted through. Over here, cars start rusting after the first winter.

Fucking calcium.
