Re: 1984 ford bronco II 2.8 Carburetor

I converted one of my B2s about 10 years ago and it hasnt missed a beat since... the body has rusted away and looks like crap so I put a snowplow on it about 6 years ago and it starts in 40 below weather. There is also a noticable improvement in HP once its converted. I liked it enough that I have a...

Re: 1984 ford bronco II 2.8 Carburetor

Ya thats it... basically its the same electronic ignition that Ford used in the late 70s, its very dependable and super simple to work on later on if need be.

Re: 1984 ford bronco II 2.8 Carburetor

Your doing a motor swap to avoid carb issues??? Thats rather extreme.Lol The 2.8 is a great engine if you do the Duraspark conversion, thats costs about $500usd and it deletes all the polution control and troublesome electronics including the computer and ignition module. It only takes a few hours t...

Re: New and need help

I cant tell from the VIN but.. All Bronco II have the transfer case however NOT ALL have the front differential.... so if it isnt 4x4 now then you will need a front diff to convert it.

Re: What did you do with your Bronco II today?

Welcome to the forum Galusha... got some pics of your B2 you can share??

Ive had a mid winter thus far so the B2 snowplow hasnt seen much action. I cleaned out the shop recently so I can get the XLS in and see if I can free up the motor... if not I'll have to bite the bullet and start a motor swap.

Re: Need 1984 Bronco II Carburetor Nuts

Most hardware stores may not carry 12 point nuts but..... Could you not just count the number of threads in 1" and go to a nut/bolt specialty supply store?

Re: Picked up #6 today

Yes it is the auto... and I wont know if its good until I get a motor in front of it, I do have one spare auto but again I dont know if its good or not. If I have to I can swap it to a manual but I would prefer not to go that route if I can avoid it. The hope is for this to be the last daily driver ...
