Loss of power in 1984 bronco2 2.8 5sp trans

Postby Bronc 2 84 » Thu Jan 14, 2010 8:22 pm

I bought the truck last October it had the stock tires which were i believe 205 70 15.I drove it home fine did a bunch of work to it.Also put 31 inch tires on and i just got it plated about a month ago and when i drove it it won't go faster than 40-45mph unless of course going downhill i didn't fix anything to the motor or drivetrain besides a tune up plugs,wires,oilchange,and air filter other than that wheel bearings,tie rods,new cat,and brakes.So any info i can get will be great.Thanks

Yes, Jan,Feb really gets cold here. Central TX gets a mix of it all, but mostly ice storms if anything. Esp that last blast avg temp was like 15 for 2 weeks. Just now starting to warm up some
