Then Microsoft added insult to injury by telling all windows live users they must run a patch as Micros...

Re: no idle 85 bronco 2

First I would ask a question? Is this a stock 2.8 that has the electronic carburetor? and funky ignition. Sounds like it could use a duraspark conversion and a ford 2150 carburetor. At least you would have a nice simple easy to work on fuel and electric system and be as reliable as my Timex.

Re: havent been on for a while

You Could significantly improve your cooling by putting some sort of shroud around the fan. A shroud could improve cooling better than 50% and especially when running at a slow speed.

Re: fabrication on frame

I have seen a thread here a long time ago about someone doing what you are asking about. I remember the rear mount was something built up on each frame rail with a cross member going across the right under the back of the cab.

You might want to do a search here on that subject.

Re: Tach gauge loves to dance ??

You might check the instrument panel voltage regulator. They are usually mounted to the back of the instrument Panel. It supplies a solid steady reference voltage for the instruments. When the instruments go wonky look at this item first! BTW: Wonky really is a word. My 35 year old daughter swears i...

Re: 31s on an 89

Good show. I think the tire rub would be real aggravating so the 30's are a good selection..

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

Well The B2 is officially Gone. It was sad watching it go but at the same time it was a relief to be free of the rig. I still have all the running gear for another one with 4:10 gears, A Lock rite Locker and a D28 TTB 4:10 with Limited slip. I have 3 A4LDs and 3 2.9's. Plus wires and dash and such. ...

The un fortuneate End of the Bronco II Project.

I am setting here watching the end of my B II project as it has finally been determined to be economically UN feasible to complete this project. The B II has been setting out in the weeds next to my shop and the other day I noticed a tree near the building was looking diseased. I called an arborist ...

Re: '88 Bronco II with Gremlins

I would first fix one problem at a time. Are you saying the headlights won't come on and the engine won't turn over? That sounds like a fundamental dead battery. You need to put a voltmeter on the battery to read battery voltage. Record on a piece of paper the voltage measured at the Battery termina...
