    Extended Storage

    Thanks for all the help! Rig fired right up! I'm sure I will begin more projects in the near future. 20180915_153542.mp4

    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?

    Extended Storage

    Thanks for the help on previous post all. I am closing in on getting the rig back up and running. It has been in garage without running for about 2 years and wanted to be sure I covered all my bases before firing the beast up. I've just installed new fuel tank. Also will be filling tires up, changing oil and charging battery. Are there any key items I need to check before turning the key? I have never had it sit so long before, unfortunately the day job had been in the way. Thanks for any tips!

    Fuel Tank Install

    I got this kit from Bronco Graveyard. Do the end caps need to be removed on this after install? Thanks

    Fuel Tank Install

    Hey everyone, Its been quite some time since I have been back on the forum. Glad to say I am once again working on the Bronco. About a year ago I started a project to replace the rear fuel tank. Unfortunately I did not take pictures and didn't realize it would be a year later that I would install the new tank. Should be a simple question, the two small connectors on the side next to the filler hose and the vent hose are covered with a red plug. Do these just stay in the tank? I remember my last tank had nothing connected here, but was not sure if something was covering them. Product I purchased is attached. Thanks for any help! Glad to be back!
  7. Having an issue getting the truck running. It fires up fine and will run for about 5-10 seconds, then sputters and dies. I noticed smoke coming out of the air cleaner on top of carb. I removed and tried again, there is a puff of smoke that shoots out of the carb as it dies. Sort of makes a "poof" noise as it dies. Not sure if an issue with carb? Maybe timing? I replaced timing gears and chains about a year ago, haven't had any issues. I recently replaced the fuel pump, also played around with the carb tuning after that trying to get a good idle. That was a few weeks ago and this is first start since. Not sure if this could be a cause for concern. Any help would be appreciated.

    Not getting fuel

    The Bronco is back on the road! Looks like the fuel pump was the issue. I went out again today and tested for fuel after cranking a few times. After seeing good pressure I plugged the lines back in and she fired up! Thanks for all the help.

    Not getting fuel

    I decided to replace the fuel pump and replace the fuel lines from pump to carb. I am still not getting the engine to fire though. I did spray some starter fluid in the carb and she started right up, only for a second of course. My only guess now is the carb may need some maintenance?

    Not getting fuel

    No update, as the day job has been getting in the way lately. I was thinking about replacing my fuel line after the pump. I have heard a few people tell me the filter should be placed in front of the fuel pump? Currently my fuel filter is placed after the fuel pump and I'm curious if there may be a clog somewhere in this area. As I noted before the line I sprayed compressed air through seemed clean, this is the only area I have not tested/replaced. I am thinking about running a new line from the pump to the carb, should I move the filter or is this the correct placement? Thanks

    Not getting fuel

    Tank switching valve? Is this the rod under the driver seat? The rig only has the rear gas tank installed. The AUX tank was removed years back. Would this answer your question? I'm obviously a little new to working with the fuel lines. I think next step with be to inspect the sending unit, may need to replace and get old tank cleaned at radiator shop or pick up a new one.

    Not getting fuel

    I just tried this out and definitely felt suction on inlet and a puff of air on the other side. Just seems to be no gas coming thru the line. Not sure what is next?

    Not getting fuel

    Here's an update, I pulled the line at the tank and gas came out fine, I also pulled line before the pump and shot a few sprays of compressed air. Nothing seemed to be blocking the line. Now I'm thinking it may be the pump after all. As I said I had just replaced a few years back, should I remove and try cleaning? As there isn't much to these old mechanical pumps? Or is there an easy way to test the pump?
  14. Hope everyone is having a good weekend, well decided to take the rig out today and ran into an issue. Try to start it and won't fire, checked for spark and everything there is fine. I pulled the fuel line after the filter and nothing. So I tried after the pump and still no fuel spitting out. I just replaced this pump two years ago so I'm hesitant to think it's out already. I pulled the fuel line apart before it goes to the pump and I'm getting no fuel at all. I'm wondering if it's time to pull this old tank out and get it replaced (as I'm sure it's full of rust and dirt). Anyone have any advice? Do I need to pull the line running from the tank and replace? Maybe it's clogged? Or is there anything at the gas tank where I could pull apart?
  15. I am looking to replace the Shocks/Coils/Leaf Springs. I have no experience with any suspension replacement and I am curious if anyone has any recommendations on parts, tips on replacement, etc. I also am wondering how I know which size I will need. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
