  6. Yo, Yep@ BW 1356 High Fluid Level & Low Transmission Fluid Level And Or Shift And Or Engagement Concerns TSB 97-12-13 for 87-96 Bronco & many others; "...transmission may have low fluid level and/or may have either a shift concern and/or an engagement concern. This may be caused by transmission fluid leaking from the transmission into the transfer case through the transfer case input seal. Replace the transfer case input seal..." read more Source: by Ford at http://web.archive.org/web/20120619091228/http://www.thedieselstop.com:80/faq/9497faq/tsb/tsb/files/971213.pdf

    Yo, Sorry was in hospital. Leve it unplugged.
  8. I just changed my Transfer case fluid and am a little confused with the capacity difference of fluid coming out and going back in... About 1 gallon of fluid came out and only 2 quarts went back in before coming out of the fill plug hole. Could there be an issue with my transfer case input shaft seal causing transmission fluid to leak into transfer case? Or is there another way to fill this that I'm not aware of by removing transfer case from vehicle or something?

    Extended Storage

    I don't think it much matters.., the weather is warm so I'd drain it, put in the new oil & pour a bit in the new filter (not much 'cause it sits on an angle.) & go for it. A strong charged batt. helps. Again, a helper to watch for anything unusual while cranking/starting.

    If I do the bypass of the ABS ECU by wiring the two that I need to jumper out side of the harness can I then plug the ABS back into the old computer ECU unit. Or do I need to leave the whole unit unplugged . Thanks George Coleman

    Extended Storage

    Thanks for the info, Will be working on this in the next week. I watched a few vids on extended storage and starting the engine...would your recommendation be to change oil before or after? I figured before, but I am starting the wonder if it would be better after oil has had a chance to warm up a little. That way I can drain all the gunk out during the change. Any advise on previous experience or thoughts?

    ABS

    So if I bypass I will take the two wires out from the wiring harness make the connection and I can still plug the harness back into the ABSECU right? This will make the light go out each time I start the Bronco. I will need to make the two leads I pulled out water proof correct? Checked the fuses all were ok.
  16. Yo M, Looks as new!

    Yo George, YW! No need to remove bulb with bypass.
  18. George Coleman

    ABS

    Thanks, I will try this as well. If I do the bypass will I need to take the bulb out of the dash right?

    What Did you Do With Your Bronco Today???

    I've never used a Teflon lube in the window guides, my dad taught me to use graphite. Next on my list is the chrome and headlight haze. For now I spent the time getting 99% of the hard water stains off the paint. Here is a Before: And here is After: Took it to a parking lot get-together and cruise. Only the guys who were older really knew the importance of the Centurion Badging, this is one vehicle that has to be explained to the younger generation (my generation). Met with a guy that had a Supercharged lightning and he really liked that it was in black. If I had a gray interior it would be tempting to have a custom made Nite stripe apply'd XD

    Yo George, Can you try this Procedure?1) Ignition OFF.2) Jumper pin E to pin B. Even a paper clip will do.3) Ignition to RUN (not start).4) Remove jumper after 5 or more seconds have elapsed.6) Go in and read the codes flashed out by the ABS light.All codes are 2 digits long. 3 to 6 seconds between digits in the same code. 15 seconds between codes. I am guessing you have code 17, so check the cab fuses 2, 8 & 5. If same, bypass the 4WABS control module. 4WABS Control Module CONNECTOR Bypass for PSOM Operation due to Bad 4WABS Control Module; "...jumper 14 to 21, & 39 to 22..." MIESK5 NOTE;. I did this on our 96; The 4WABS control module was toast due to 2 microprocessor failures... Pic by Turboghost

    I ran this 8 times the wife read the dash light and I used a test light, wait 5 seconds after the key was placed into the run mode. pulled the jumper got 1 long 7 short then 1 long on my end. So what next try it again?? Or just bypass it??
  22. miesk5

    ABS

    Yo George, See to say, there isn't a 71 Code. I pulled the bulb after the control module puked and yard modules turned out bad as well, with no returns.
  23. George Coleman

    ABS

    Well I did the abs light test got 7 short and 1 long ,, code said its the RABS valve HCV is bad! So do I take a chance and find someone to replace it or just bypass the ABS system all together and take out the ABS warning light? The reason I ask this if I have to take out the dash bezel unit it will be its last as all of the plastic pieces have broke off I have glued them for the last time. Thanks for the help George Coleman

    1974 BRONCO WILL NOT START

    Hi Skip, welcome..., Ditto M5's advice.., however you could give a bit more info. to help us help you. i.e. "will not start" could mean eng. doesn't turn over when you turn the key to "start". OR it could mean the eng. spins when you turn the key but does not "come to life/fire up"..!! A few drops of fuel down the throat of the carb., then turn the key (assuming the eng. rotates) will tell you if it's a fuel or ignition issue. If it attempts to run.., it's not the ignition..., it's a fuel issue. No fire.., it's ignition issue. Have you R&R;d distributors B/4..? you may have it in 180deg. off or somewhere in between. Can you give us some info. about your mech. experience..? And, any other info. about your rig & any other mods relating to engine setup..? Assume this is a V/8.., is it auto or stick.? Is it a stock 302, etc. (I'm not sure what a "Duro spark box" is) (Is this an Autozone ignition module.?) Point being, it's really tough to solve these issues without knowing the specifics. Don't give up.., it's probably a simple fix.

    Yo Skip, Welcome! Won't crank or won't start? Cranking problem could be ignition switch, neutral safety switch, starter solenoid, starter, or any wiring in between those. Check for 12v at starter solenoid "S" terminal with the key in START. If you get 12v there than check the solenoid, starter or cable connections. If you don't check the ignition switch, neutral safety switch, or wiring between. If it just won't start check for spark and fuel. Borrow a spark tester and checkmfor spark at the plug wire ends. Remove the air cleaner. While looking in the throat of the carburetor, pump the throttle linkage. A working pump will squirt fuel into the carburetor. However, if no fuel appears, verify the tank has gas and check the fuel line and fuel filter for blockages. Visually inspect the pump. Inspect the fuel pump visually. If fuel is dripping, the diaphragm is faulty and you need a new pump. Another way to check the pump is disconnect the fuel line at the carburetor and place it in a container. Crank the engine to see if the pump is pushing any fuel through the line. Strong steady spurts of fuel mean the pump is working. No fuel or a weak stream means a bad pump, a plugged fuel filter, fuel line blockage. For wiring diagrams, see http://bronco.com/technical/wiring.shtml
  26. o M, Nice! Cleaned headlight haze. Then storms came next up is to clean all weatherstripping then apply silicone to all except to sides that touch glass. Ford does recommend, "Use Silicone Lubricant C0AZ-19553-AA (jelly) and D7AZ-19553-AA (spray) or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESR-M13P4-A on the weatherstrips whenever necessary. Silicone lubricant helps avoid weatherstrip squeaks and retards excess weatherstrip wear from chafing. It also helps to retain alignment by reducing friction between the glass and the rubber weatherstrip. miesk5 note, test the silicone on a regular styrofoam cup first; if the cup gets funky or melts, then the can or tube contans oil, a regular occurrence now, esp if from China.Use Multi-Purpose Grease Spray D7AZ-19584-AA or equivalent meeting Ford specifications ESR-M1C159-A and ESB-M1C106-B to lubricate lgate hinges. Apply an even coat to all hinge pivot points as outlined in the maintenance schedules or when a binding or squeaking condition occurs..."Apply dry (Teflon) lube to the flocked surfaces that touch the glass; dry lube prevents noise & abrasion, and allows the glass to move faster. "Take off the TG access cover and spray Tri-Flow in the tracks on either side so the regulator toggles slide up and down easy" by JKossarides
