  1. I like the read color the Bronco has vs the original Green.
  2. Rather then asking for money out right ya might try making something for people to see, something like a Youtube channel. Take your time making a video, cover a topic on your Bronco people are interested in. I know that there are alot of Auto channels out there but not all of them cover OBS Ford and Bronco content. Could even create a simple 1 color design that could be printed on a White T-Shirt and have it featured on our YouTube page. I guess the message I really want to convey is create something people can spend money on.
  3. My Red '91 got a new heater core today. Also changed out my 180°F Stat for a Hi-flow 195°F stat. The 180° thermostat was just too cool for my 351. It was always in the 160 to 170 range. Even in the summer the Bco ran too cool. This resulted in some issues with my EEC jumping in and out closed loop. With the new 195° the throttle response is smooth.
  4. Welcome back! I'm always excited to see photos of people getting their Bco back on the road.
  5. Sunday, I was following the F150 in front of me when I dropped through the top crust and my rear slid off to the side. I was just too heavy for the snow trail, the Bronco behind me was floating along. Took a polaris razor with mattracks to pull me out of the rut I made for my self. Not a bad day.
  6. Re reading my own post I can see I wasn't being clear enough with 1 question. The Factory springs from 87-91 and 92-96, are they the same? If so could this lead to other hood parts being compatible between the 2 generations? Alot of the time they don't list the other generation because they didn't test it on those years of vehicle.
  7. I was looking for a gas strut hood kit for both my Bronco's. Then I started wondering if the the 92-97 OBS kit would work? I thought the Brick nose and round nose used the same springs. Or is there just enough of a difference that the 2 generations can't mix and match this part. https://www.redlinetuning.com/1992-1997-Ford-Bronco-Hood-QuickLIFT-PLUS-p/21-11034-02.htm
  8. Got around to installing the injectors and adjustable regulator in the 4 Door today.
  9. This news just hit Facebook. Fiveology Racing Removing emissions related sensors/solenoids can cause idle quality and drivability issues, especially when it comes to the Thermactor System. This eliminator kit makes it possible to remove the Thermactor System Solenoids (TAB,TAD) from your main engine wire harness while keeping the EFI system functioning normally and the check engine light from coming on.

  10. Didn't even know that site had Ads. I use this with Firefox. https://adblockplus.org/
  11. We got snow in the valley for the first time this winter season.
  12. 6" Drop hitch was the perfect amount for the the Car hauler I was using today. Towing with the Centurion was great. I honestly thought it tow'd better and smoother then my '84 F-350 Crew Cab.
  13. Got the Centurion back from the shop. We will see how good fuel pump #3 works. My '91 will go to the trans shop for an official diagnostic.
  14. Yes you will need to hook up the existing gray plug in the new 3g.
  15. I used 2 4 gauge wires off the back of the alt. 1 to the starter solenoid and 1 straight to the battery. ITs complete over kill. x1 4ga wire of the back of a 3g alt to the starter solenoid is plenty. I got my 3g from O'reilly and its the part # used in the 1994 Mustang 5.0. fit great with the normal bracket grinding required.
  16. looks like you have a 4" lift to me. What your cost is depends on what lift kit you buy. But I would easily suggest new drive lines because the factory ones won't hold up at the new angles the 6" lift will cause. https://www.customwheeloffset.com/store/suspension?sort=popular&year=1995&make=Ford&model=Bronco&drive=4WD&lift=6q I would give the boys at Big Dick Suspension a call and see what parts they recommend changing out with one of their kits. http://bds-suspension.com/product?ma=3&mo=22&ty=31&yr=1980-1996
  17. Got my new fuel injectors from fiveologyracing. But my 29 day old fuel pump in the tank died. Had the Centurion towed back to the mechanic. He does good work but he's a one man shop and his lot was full when I dropped it off. I thought about doing the fuel pump myself but the 30 day parts and labor warranty is about to pay for its self.
  18. Tune Up Fix some lights and make others brighter in the plans are some new fuel injectors and an adj fuel press regulator.
  19. The Best answer would be to take the Bronco to a trans shop and have them put their tools on it. I'm thinking before I do so I'm going to try a new MLPS and while I'm under there look for any damaged wires.
  20. I'll honestly say that I forgot to even think about checking for codes. For the reason that, in the past anytime I've had an issue with an engine not running correctly I've never gotten codes. A year ago when the transmission was running hotter then the engine, I never got any codes. Now grant'd that was due to a bad EEC, my point still is it just seems like any time I have an issue the computer doesn't throw a code for me to find. I'll check after work today just to be sure.
  21. I was driving my '91 the other day and had the oddest thing happened, After making it about 2 or so miles into my run across town I was coming to a stop and my Bco acted like it was trying to push through the brakes and the engine died. It re-started with no issue but when I put it in drive it died again. I try'd again, put the transmission in Neutral, started the engine, engaged Drive and the engine died again. I was like... So I try'd again, but this time I skipped D and went strait to first, engine stayed running. Shifted into Drive with my foot still on the Brake and the engine died again. At this point I'm getting a lil' up set. Started the engine in N and revv'd the engine out of frustration. Back to "D" and drove with out issue. Made my stop, and drove to the other side of town, and it happened again. That time I could put it in drive as long as my foot was giving the gas pedal a lil' push. And even then the engine sounded like it was under a major load. The next few stop signs had me putting the transmission into neutral when coming to a stop. After driving home I needed to make another trip a few hours later, this time my trip was drama free like nothing happened. Now I've had issues with my E4OD for a long while now, and from what I've been reading on the F150 forums and other Bronco forums this happens when the Torque Converter stay's locked when coming to a stop. I'm thinking that this is what is happening and that it's time for a new TC. Just wondering if I should be looking for anything else before I pull the transmission.
