  1. Yo Mike, Purchase the Red orifice tube for r134a. See https://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum/21-noobie-bronco-tech-questions-flame-free-zone/246081-going-convert-r134a-i-want-do-right.html post by pfun41 for more info. ○ see my site for more conversion links @ http://schwimserver5.com/index.php?index=498
  2. Yo e, Thanks! Looking FWD to your flush article. Again, thank you. Al
  3. Yo e, Thanks much! Here is the A/C Orifice Tube Replacement in 1996 Bronco/F-Series from the 96 Workshop Manual @ http://www.diesel-dave.com/vehic/manual/stj/stjc3a40.htm ○ And, A/C System Filtering @ http://www.diesel-dave.com/vehic/manual/stj/stjc3a46.htm Ford wrote this up as part of compressor failure inspection & replacement.
  4. Yo, Here ya go pal! Camper Top; Cross-Section Structure pics in 80-96; Chris said that thye metal structure is about an 1/8-3/16" thick Source: by Chris B (Blue, bronco boy) The steel "roll bar" inside the factory 78-91 Bronco camper shell is glued into the fiberglass, but not bolted to the bedwalls. All fullsize Broncos (78-96) have a steel "roll bar" integrated into the rear edge of the fiberglass camper shell. In 92, the bar was improved & extended forward so it could be retained by 2 of the bolts, and the alignment pins were moved onto the bar, pointing down into the bedrails..." Shortened info & pics in a 91 Source: by jtg (Jackson) at "The flat part of the top is pretty thin, how ever you can reinforce the flat section by laminating a flat section from an other top to the in side. I've done this to a couple of tops that I have shortened and it makes a big difference." Here is some pics of a cut up top and inside laminated of a shortened top.    Painting info; 1 DO NOT use chemical stripper (I was stripping the entire truck) it's made of SMC(sheet molded compound) and the texture is sprayed on 2 Dont use a DA. You'll sand the splatter pattern off it 3 Scuff it with red scuff pads (3M) 4 Seal with epoxy primer (I used PPG DP-40) 5)Paint, but mix with the desired amount (25-30%) of flattening agent (PPG DX685 - this stuff is weird/smells bad but works; unshaken/unstirred it looks like a sticky golf ball soaking in what I perceive elephant *** would look like). Too much flattening agent and the top will become chalky after a few yews and too little makes it look funny (too glossy). My truck is the newer '98 Expedition white (paint code YZ maybe). I used PPG, DAU product line on this one. If you do this is how I mixed: Color (DAU)16oz; Hardener(DU2)16 oz; Flattener(DX685)10oz (up to 12); Reducer 1.5- 2 oz. The PPG DX685 Chart on the cut sheet is helpful on other PPG lines; Form P-162 (9/96)..." Source: by j. r. Nice (J. R. N)

    Yo CJ, Speed Density to Mass Air Conversion & Parts List with Cost in a 93 F150, 5.0, E4OD; "...For this article, I will be doing a 93 Ford F-150, 5.0, E4OD trans. Because they don't make a kit for this, I will be re-wiring the harness, and using a PCM and MAF out of a 95 f-150, 5.0, E4OD. If you have a truck with a non-electronic Trans, like the old AOD's, or C-6's, etc, you can use a MAF conversion kit..."

Mike Wesley says he uses the F5TF-12A650-HB (95 CA 5.0 MAF/E4OD) on a 750+ HP daily driver 415 stroker Lightning with a Vortech S trim. It runs open loop, has been reprogrammed, drives like stock, gets 17 MPG and will run low 10’s at 130+ in the 1/4 mile and A/C and cruise work great. Both of these EEC’s are set to use 4.10 gears. If a smaller ratio is used, say 3.55, you could use the F5TF-12A650-GB. There are probably 15-20 EEC’s available to convert a SD (later model) to MAF (some of these may compromise the ability to stay emissions legal). If you have an early SD truck with AOD, re-wire to the Mustang EEC (Ford MotorSport sells this kit). You’ll have to move/add quite a few wires, and you might not like the results if you’re not able to re-calibrate the EEC (like the Pro-M ’low cost’ kit, Kenne Bell, LCA and Downs Ford come pre-re-calibrated). The engine shuts down at 85 MPH, shifting is fairly sloppy and too early (at least on a Lightning). All Ford EECs shift poorly -- except for the Lightning, which is only slightly firmer. To use the Mustang EEC on a truck with an E4OD/AODE, you would need to run two EECs in parallel. The Mustang EEC runs the engine, the existing truck EEC controls the trans. Pro-M sells a kit like this..." READ MUCH MORE Source: by Tom C □

    1994 302 into a 1993

    Yo CJ, Ford 5.0 went to HO in 94 with different firing order and plug wire routing, ○ 93 5.0; From a fading memory, the HO has a MAF sensor, IF SO, you will need the PCM, AKA, EEC IV from the 94 and if you have E4OD, the PCM must be from an E4OD equipped Bronco.

Loose steering column intermediate shaft coupling to steering column bolt. TIGHTEN to specification. Improperly adjusted steering gear. ADJUST to specification (meshload only). REFER to Section 11-02B or Section 11-02D. Miesk5 note, avoid doing this! Power Steering or Accessory Belt Squealing Check belt for proper tension or glazing. For C-II pump, the pump would be damaged due to excessive fluid temperatures of 149°C (300°F) or higher. Dark fluid with a burnt smell will confirm. TIGHTEN or REPLACE belt as required. REFER to Section 03-05.For CII pump, REPLACE pump and PURGE old fluid. ADD Motorcraft MERCON ® ATF XT-2-QDX or MERCON® equivalent. Pump Noisy Low fluid level and possible leakage. REFILL to specified level. PURGE air from system. CHECK for leaks. REPAIR as required. If noise persists, REPLACE pump. Swish Type Noise Fluid flow into the bypass valve of the pump valve housing with fluid temperature below 55°C (130°F). Normal noise. Whine Type Noise Aerated fluid or cam contour damaged. Worn or damaged valve O-ring seal. PURGE system of air. If condition not resolved, REPLACE pump. GO to Pinpoint Test D .

    installing rear wheelstuds

    Yo D, This is by Ford for 96 Bronco, but same for your 85, Wheel Hub Bolt SPECIAL SERVICE TOOL(S) REQUIRED Description Tool Number C-Frame and Clamp Assembly T74P-3044-A1 Removal Raise the vehicle and install safety stands. Remove the wheel and tire assembly. Refer to Section 04-04. Remove the brake drum (1126) from the axle shaft or wheel hub bolts as described in this section. CAUTION: Never use a hammer to remove the stud. Damage to the hub or bearing may result. Using C-Frame and Clamp Assembly T74P-3044-A1, press the wheel hub bolt from its seat in the rear hub (1109). The lug bolt (1107) may also be removed by pressing it out using an appropriate sized socket and C-clamp. Discard the wheel hub bolt. Installation Insert new wheel hub bolt in hole in the axle shaft (4234) or rear hub. Rotate wheel hub bolt slowly aligning serrations with those made by the original wheel hub bolt. Place four flatwashers over the outside end of the wheel hub bolt and thread the lug nut (1012) with the flat side against the washers. CAUTION: Do not use air tools as the serrations may be stripped from the stud. Tighten the lug nut until the wheel hub bolt head seats against the back side of the shaft or hub. Remove lug nut and washers. Install brake drum and wheel (1007). Lower the vehicle. I used large copper cable lugs
