    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

    89 4 Door

    It was a bit of a process but it was worth it. I found an ad on craigslist for a 1989 Centurion Classic. Over the years I have seen these a few of these on ebay, some on craigslist on the east side, but mainly I read about the 4 Door Bronco in the archive sections of forums. When I saw this one listed and saw that it was in my price range I had to take a look and try my best to bring it home. It was 2.5 hours away from my house and I had to wait to see it because of my schedule, or the seller's schedule. After talking to the seller I found out that the Bronco had been sitting for a few years in the back of their yard but it was started and moved about once every other week. That was helpful information and allowed me to I pack a few extras for the trip. Owning nothing but Fords it was easy to find some extra parts... My buddy from Highschool likes taking road trips and he had the day off the same Tuesday I did. I didn't ask him to take the day off it just work'd out that way. After looking things over and taking the Bronco for a test drive I pulled the trigger. My Highschool friend and seller of the Bronco were worried about the cracks in the sidewall of the tires so I put the ugly stock highway tires from project Betty and drove the 2.5 hours back home. The road trip back was fun, part of the gear we took was some GMRS radios. They are kinda like amateur radios but use different frequencies in the FCC band plan. I had a 15watt radio with a mag mount antenna and my buddy had a 5 watt radio using the same mag mount antenna Midland includes in the box. Both worked perfect for highway cruising and made riding in different vehicles way fun. I like using GMRS radios because the antennas are ~4" tall compared to tall CB antennas. After arriving back in the valley at midnight we unloaded the extra tires that came in the Purchase and crashed for the night. This past week had been crazy. It's car show week and I like taking the Crew Cab F-350 out but in between shows and cleaning sessions on the truck, I drove the 4 Door as much as I could. Even snapped a few pic's. After the Show and shine event on Saturday I had some light left in the day to clean up the 35"s and see how bad they are. I think that for around town they'll be just fine. My dad introduced me to a volunteer firefighter here in the valley who is also a Bronco enthusiast and we stopped by his house. We took a look at the paint and it should clean up quite well. Definitely many adventures to be had with this special Bronco.

    electric waterpump vs. centifugal waterpump

    Sounds like you need one of these https://www.summitracing.com/parts/MRG-4364/

    What Did you Do With Your Bronco Today???

    I thought so After I started looking at all the C-350s on Youtube and Google. Seller wants $4000 and it'll need another $500-$1000 once i get it home. Sounds like a good deal? or do I need to talk the seller down?

    thinking vary seriously about getting this do all c-350's have SAS?

    electric waterpump vs. centifugal waterpump

    I haven't tested all the water pump types but a stock water pump will do fine when coupled with a good 2 or 3 core radiator. You could also use a hi-flow belt driven pump (25-35% more flow then stock) with a 2 core radiator. You'll only need a electric pump if your really racing the Bronco and keeping it in the upper RPMs for the majority of your drive. A large benefit is to ditch the factory style cooling fan and install 2 quality electric fans with electric fan shroud.

    led lighting

    I havn't had much luck with cheap LED lights for Headlights or Fogs, I would avoid the LEDs featured on Amazon and ebay. I have either stuck to the stock style bulb or HIDs are a good option. For housing options you might want to check out http://outlawleds.com/headlight-builds/ford/

    Pre-Runner Style Bronco Jumps

    Saw this video and had to share. Not much love for the Brick-nose from car communitys, so when one gets featured its a big deal.

    Ford Bronco Concepts

    Now that I own a Bronco I've been thinking and talking with some buddys about Ford making a new Bronco based off the current production F-150. Even guys who hate Ford like the idea because they feel that it would spur Chevy to makes its Blazer again. Well I did some digging and here is what I've found. Fords concept back in 2004 for a 2013 release. Engine would of been a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder or its nitrous-oxide injection system. But now things have changed and Ford hasn't made any move on the 2004 concept so now new fan made concepts are coming to light. and And their are more pictures like this out their. So here's the run down... Ford built the Raptor because they felt like it. Nobody asked them to make a Beastly Off-Road truck--They just built it and it paid off big time. So here is what I'm wondering... Could Ford build a 2014 Bronco? Would it be worth it?
  17. Got done wiring in the new EEc from fiveologyracing.com, Took the computer a lil bit of time to learn how to idle correctly. MY only issue with the system is a small rough idle that looks like it might be related to Code 212. I did some google searching and 212 might be caused by a bad 22k resistor, or I might need to change my TFI to one that is for the 1994 F-150. I've seen on different forums that I will need # DY-1077. The Bronco runs with out issue just has this KOEO 212 code, Do I need the TFI with the 3 pins on top or do I need the one with out the upper pins?

    New EEC, Code 212

    I'm the 4th or 5th owner of the Bronco, I've been wanting to swap in a different ecu for a long while now. Problem is all the companys that made a kit back in 2004-2008 when ecu swapping was all the rage most of them are gone now. Thankfully fiveologyracing is still in business. The opportunity really presented it self when one of the caps leaked out onto my board. Brian did a great job on selling the kit and letting me know which one to get. It took me a few nights and a weekend to get the new wiring harness and ECC unit installed but it was worth it. I contacted Brian about my 212 code and he said that was a common problem with the Gray TFI and the new ECU that are from a 1995 MAF 5.0 F-150. He sent me a wire and some instructions, I found a Black TFI from a Ford dealer in CA, (nos part) and shortly after the part arrived I installed the new TFI. Also found a few other loose wires and patched them up. Since installing the new Black TFI I havn't had the 211 code. The engine was rebuilt by a shop under the 3rd owner of the Bronco. That was 45k ago.

    New EEC, Code 212

    I was askin' about the 211 code to trouble shoot my tfi with my new http://www.fiveologyracing.com/ EEC unit.

    New EEC, Code 212

    Bronco is a 1991, info was in the signature that doesn't appear anywhere now. Fav Bronco year is 1993, Has the body style commonly supported by the After Market parts manufactures. Was also the last year before FoMoCo added airbags.

    New EEC, Code 212

    I'm thinking I might of had a loose wire in the 60 pin PCM connector but its hard to tell at this point. Swapped the gray TFI out for a new Black one, have gone 7days with no issue. I'm almost to the point that I can start taking long road trips in the Bronco Again.

    What Did you Do With Your Bronco Today???

    Wow, I havn't posted an up-date in here since March! 0_0 guess that's what happens when I start working long days. I got all the wiring button'd up and have been driving the Bronco, finding a glitch and fixing that issue and moving on. Swapped out the old Push Start style TFI for the New CCD TFI. Going from the gray to the Black module improved my throttle response greatly. Overall I'm very happy with the results with my MAF conversion. My only issue is how the PCM does the load calculations for 3rd. But I'm finding more and more that I might have a 3rd gear issue caused by the old Bronco computer. Still liking the feelings of the shifts with the Banks transcommand. Feels like a shift kit.

    upper radiator hose

    Ya know, I didn't have a coolant leak till I join'd in on this conversation. 🤣 Thankfully mine is just a bad 5/8 hose going from the intake to the water pump. Stop by O'reilly tomorrow and get a new one.
