Thank you for your response. I have bid on several 74 Ford truck manuals on ebay, but have not been successful, so I appreciate your opinion. The truck has 51K miles, I have owned it for 13 years. It is used for hauling corn/soybeans, so it works hard when I use it. The oil pressure has dropped the past couple of years to about 30 pounds hot, on the road with 10/30 oil. I have changed the oil sender a couple of times and it helped one time only. My concern is that idling with the pto running lifting the box it has dropped to zero several times this fall, this is a first. Around 40K I had some valve lifter sticking, so I switched to 10/30 from 10/40 and it corrected the problem. Otherwise the engine runs perfect and uses very little oil for the workout it gets, in and out of fields and hills with 10 ton+ of payload. I remember a 1958 Ford car I owned with low oil pressure, idiot light flashing at idle and finally damaging the camshaft to the point of replacement, rather not do that again. So this is the reason for my inquiry and working through the decision of to leave alone or repair now. Thanks again.
