couple questions

i am thinking about buying an early 80's f100 and have a few questions....

would the stock TTB and rear axle hold up to 35's?

i pushed the brake pedal and it had a little resistance and then BAM, it hit the floor, what would cause that? i checked the brake fluid and its full, and i couldn't find any leaks....

That truck will have (depending on year/engine) a 8.8" or 9" rearend (both 31 spline), and a HP D44 front (TTB).

35s shoulnt be a problem if you don't get too stupid on the throttle.

If there are no leaks and the brake fluid is full, I'd suspect the MC.

well, the truck is a 81 f150 4x4....i think i am buying it......

would completely worn out brake pads cause the pedal to go to the floor? i was looking at it today and found a brand new set of pads laying in the floor behind the seat....
