Re: Power lost on Incline

Thats an odd problem, cant think of anything that would be affected solely by going up an incline. Is this a stock 2.9? What tranny?

Check the fuel pump and filter.

Re: '85 Bronco II Smog Pump Removal

The emmision light is turned on every 60k by a relay behind the glove box, it can be unplugged, it wont be the cause of the no start problem tho, that is most likely a bad electrical connection or weak battery.

All that wiring and the vacumn lines get thrown out when the duraspark is installed, nothing left but the basics.

Re: Buying a B2 soon! Strive for a 90 or settle for an 87-89

Sometimes you have to take whatever is available at the right price and just go with it, and it depends alot on what you want to build. Personally I prefer the '84-'85 models with the 2.8 and the duraspark conversion... but Im not building an off road toy, I drive it to work every day and have a ful...

Re: The un fortuneate End of the Bronco II Project.

Thats too bad Tek, but we all have to rethink our projects now and then... and ones that sit too long sometimes have to go. My B2s are my DDs so they stay high of the priority list but Im about to give up on my f150 after this last trip up north, the tranny boiled out 2.5 litres of fluid on a hot da...

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

Still not much B2 news here, other than driving around in the pasture gopher hunting, got a million of the little buggers this year and the holes can result in cattle with broken legs so they need to be culled. Its 'Off Roading'... just real slow and easy. Lol

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

I have turned a wrench on a B2 in weeks, been busy on kijiji with garden tractors tho, and actually showing a little profit for a change, picked up a few cheap JDs that dont need alot of time or $$ but still bring in a buck or two. Doubled the garden area and got it planted, most everything is up al...
