Issues restarting truck after it sat 4 years
I was wondering what I needed to do I just got my 1986 ford f150 XL with 160,000 miles on it running after sitting for 4 years. The transmission is shifting rough and I’ve heard it will do that until it gets everything flowing like normal. But what are some more things I should do after it sitting for so long?

It's not supposed to do that. Before I bought my '79 Pontiac, it sat for over 5 years, and it still runs and drives perfectly fine. Even the day I bought it. There are two cables running to your throttle body, one goes from the gas pedal to the throttle body, the other goes from the throttle body to the transmission. The transmission must know the position of the throttle so it can shift without ruining the transmission. Check this cable, unfortunately I don't remember what it's called at the moment.
