Joe, I hate to say it, but you are better off buying a repair manual that
will have photos of the job. If we post how to do it here, you are "blind"
as to what to look for, and it would take literaly forever to type that up..
I'd like to add that Chiltons and Haynes manuals will be of absolutely no help
this particular repair, before you waste your money on them. Factory Service
are very inexpensive on Ebay and indespensible if you maintain the vehicle for
yourself or someone else.
Hmmm, there seem to be none applicable just now, but watch for them. They show
Search for "88 Ford Truck Manual" or "88 Ford Manual" and look for the general
manual" that covers trucks and Vans. It may be listed as "Body, Chassis, and
Electrical" or as the BCE manual.
Disregard the PCED, Volume H, emissions, EVTM, or Electrical manuals for this
repair. That's lots of keywords for the same couple of manuals that you don't
just yet. You may want a PCED and EVTM if you plan to keep this truck in service.
Just a thought, IIRC the 88 and 92 E-vans were similar as far as instrument
construction and heater service. 92 and above manuals were available in CD
the dealers and offered as CD copies on Ebay. I don't know about the legality
this. They are also available as torrent files at www.fordcds.com. This may
just use your judgement and conscience.
