Re: 86 Bronco II still running rough

Re: fuel issues

Re: Fuel guage reads full always

Does it have a IVR? Connect a test light between gage lead (BK/LG) at instrument custer and ground. The light should blink regularly with the ignition on. Normal gage resistance in a 1988 is 10 to 14 ohms. Check gage calibration with 10 ohm (high) and 73 ohm (low) resistors. If gage tests within cal...

Re: Anyone On Here Go To Glamis Dunes??

I wouldn't go below 8 PSI unless you carry a can of WD40 and a match to get it back on the bead. I like 10 to 15

Don't have to drop the motor. I did a ton under warranty and it alway seem like it was the right side. Can get most of them thur the fender well and a good air rachet and a wobbley will get the rest. If one breaks then the fun begins. I have miged a nut on the broken piece and the heat seemed to loo...

Re: so you think you know your stuff

I had the same problem on my 88, I even replaced the Rad. It turned out to be the Clutch fan. Make sure you get the A/C Clutch fan.
