Re: Buying a 1988 Bronco 4WD 5-Speed

Thats a nice looking BII. I see quite a few positives to it. It's a stick with a manual Transfer case. It looks clean. If it runs good I would jump on it in a minute. It has nice wheels and room for bigger ones with the body lift it has. check the water level in the radiator and if it is real low th...

Re: Parasitic drain on battery

I might guess the click is coming from the carb. I think there is a fuel cutoff solenoid on the carb. Not really sure about that but if you have any wires near and going to the carb you might try unplugging the wires and see if the draw goes away. When I am looking for a current drain, I just unplug...

Re: New calipers front brakes still lock up

Your best bet is the hoses to the caliper. I would not think a porpotional valve would lock the brakes. I have seen this happen so many times because of the hoses!

Re: Exploding Locking Hub Bronco II 4x4

It's possible that when the hub was turned to lock it wasn't fully engaged. a sharp turn could have stressed the partially engaged it broke the housing. Do you have a locker in that axle? lockers are hard on parts on the street.

Re: 86 B2 xlt O-Ring help

Sometimes if you have the bad Oring it can be measured and a new general oring installed. Do you have a picture of this Oring? That would help identify it. I am trying from memory to place it but I am drawing a blank. Maybe someone else has better info than I have...

Re: Newbie here needing some help

I am not sure how things are done DMV wise in Tennessee but the mileage thing should be a no problem thing as after so many years the DMV really don't care about mileage on a vehicle. After they roll over 100K it really doesn't matter as the DMV has done it's due diligence in protecting newer vehicl...

Re: ODB1 KOER Codes

The first order of business is to look up the codes you are getting when engine is off. Can't troubleshoot with out knowing what codes you have. Do you have a obd1 reader or yare you reading the flash codes?

Re: 89 bronco ii

Fuel pump is a common failure item but remember a BII has 2 fuel pumps. 1 low pressure pump near the tank and a high pressure pump on the frame rail drivers side near the front of the door. Also don't forget the Fuel filter too. :cool:

Re: axles

The Dana 35 is basically an explorer axle. It is slightly wider than a stock Dana 28 that is in the B2. The added strength of axles and gears makes the Dana 28 look like a Tonka axle. The Dana 35 swap is a almost bolt in operation. I say almost because "There is always a problem of 1 sort or an...
