  1. Haven't posted in a bit since its hard to type with a wrench in one hand, and grease on the fingers. I've noticed that computers don't care for that stuff too much. A bit has happen'd and most of my activity has been posted to my instagram but I'd figure I post up here with some details. I took some time off work and got the Centurion clean'd. Was a nice break from the norm and I had a good time attending the multiple car shows that happen in my town. People would come up to me a ask how I built a four door Bronco in my backyard... Was exciting to show them the door sticker to show it was a conversion vehicle. Even many of the OBS guys that were at the Friday night cruise didn't know what I was driving. Shortly after show week I took a weekend where me and Dad went to Boise on a less then perfect road trip. The 460 Engine lost oil pressure twice on the way down and when I drained 9qts of oil it was full of brass color'd flakes. Some fresh oil and a bottle of Lucas got me home but its still not like it was. Also found out the my new windshield leaks and so do the "c" pillars Gunna park it for the winter so I can pull the interior apart later. So I'm a little bummed out about the water leaks and the engine troubles and A few Days later BAM I get a call from a Family member borrowing the '84 Crew Cab that its over heated 20min out of town. I arrive to find the truck still hot with a pool coolant and oil under the truck. Called AAA and had it tow'd home. After work the next day I took a closer look at the damage and its bad. Pass side head gasket is gone and alot of gaskets got melted. Engine runs cold but doesn't like warming up to operating temp. So now in less then a week I have 2 unrunable 460 Motors. Time to roll out the parts Bronco and get it up to daily driver status. This Blue Bronco was something I bought and pulled the tailgate wiring out of to fix the Centurion. I just havn't got around to selling it. Trans fluid was more brown then what I like to see so I went and got some fresh fluid for the trans. Along with that I did an oil change, flushed the t-case, topped off the front and rear diffs, fixed the dash lights witha new head light switch, and fixed multiple odds and ends. I've got some new tires on order too.
  2. Gunna need more details on what part of the pump/sending unit is too small. is it the top? is it not long enough? Does it have the wrong plug?
  3. Looks like he forgot to lift the rear.
  4. This is the same crew that brought us the internet video a Bronco jumping as high as a shipping container. Now they breaking down the build of a Burnout Bronco.
  5. Yo, this post is from 2006. I'd be surprised if this guy is still is in the market. If your selling your steps PM me a price.
  6. I've used this in my c6 with out any issues. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Valvoline-MaxLife-Multi-Vehicle-Automatic-Transmission-Fluid-1-Gallon/15125768 with half a bottle (12oz) of Lucas. Using that little bit is just adding some protection to the friction material. I like the stuff. https://www.walmart.com/ip/LUCAS-OIL-10009-Transmission-Fix-24-Ounce/16777815
  7. Can't wait to see a new rear bumper on that Bronco. What is up with Bronco GY's shipping prices? I almost placed an order but shipping was stupid crazy. cost more then 50% of my cart.
  8. Thought I was going to start a new thread asking how to diagnose a bad fan clutch. The fan clutch in the Centurion was sticking in the on position. My MPG dropped al lil' and accelerating felt like a chore. So I went to O'reilly and got a replacement. Only took me about 30min to pull the fan assembly and put the new on. Now I don't have any extra fan noise and accelerating feels normal.
  9. If you don't know about the Web company called Custom Offsets you probably should. Most these "kids" know more about wheels and tires then the guys working at your local tire shop. Junior is one of the staff members at this web company and is building up his Bronco. I've been following the Youtube videos for a while now and these guys make some fun stuff.
  10. Thats formatted nicely.
  11. The only hope for fuel economy is to rebuild the engine and change your gear ratio. Even then a '17 truck will still beat it. And the issue isn't springs and shocks. The question is does anybody make a OBS F-sreies quick ratio steering box? And how the freak does one get rid of the mushy brake pedal?
  12. The Axle width of the 5.8 is the same as the 5.0. Don't know who was saying those were different. MAX trailer weight with the 351w is rated for 7100 with 10 to 15% of that being on the ball. If I was you, I would take the time to install air shocks in the rear to help stabilize the Bronco under load. The E4OD is a strong transmission and will work great but you have to turn over drive off. Towing with the 351 isn't bad.
  13. Thankfully Not key'd. Old pinstripe job from the early 2000's.
  14. Buying another one sounded good at the time. 1994 Custom Package
