  • Favorite Bronco Year?:1980

Posted 21 February 2017 - 11:59 AM

Hello, My name's Robert, and i'm from Seattle Wa. I chose the title 'ShadetreeSeattle' since i'm a freelance backyard mechanic and i love my town here. i have been a jack of all trades type of person for most my life. I do not own a bronco, but rather a 1977 Ford F250 with the 4.9 I6, however i plan on picking up one someday. (as long as it has my favorite slug of a ford motor in it, the 4.9) which is why i picked 1980 as my favorite year of bronco, as they introduced the 4.9 this year.

I have a lot of electronics experience and would love to share my knowledge with this forum as i have found broncozone to be useful for many repair projects. Thanks for all of your contributions, past and future. I hope to help others with their mission to keep their vehicles up and running in a timely and cost-effective manner. I come up with solutions that may not be conventional, but may save a buck or two.

Parts replacement is not trouble shooting, replacement follows trouble shooting

Broncos are MPVs not SUVs

Engines run on fuel, or steam

Motors run on electricity, hydraulic fluid, vacuum, or air


Communication: I know you think you know what I said, but what you need to know is, I didn't say what I meant.

Hi Robert, shadetreemechanic. With your electrical experience maybe you can help me. I have 89 full-size Broncos with carburated 351W. The blower did not work when I bought the Broncos. A mechanic said the blower motor was dead and also the fuse panel was "fried". He fixed panel and put in New blower motor. So my a/c and blower have been working fine, in this hot Alabama summer. But last week on a 90 degree day both blower and a/c quit simultaneously within 5 minutes of leaving home. The no. 9 fuse was not blown, but since it was 15 amp instead of 30 amp, I replaced it with a new 30. I ran leads from the battery terminals to the blower and it worked fine. What do you think?
