  1. Yo, Yep@ BW 1356 High Fluid Level & Low Transmission Fluid Level And Or Shift And Or Engagement Concerns TSB 97-12-13 for 87-96 Bronco & many others; "...transmission may have low fluid level and/or may have either a shift concern and/or an engagement concern. This may be caused by transmission fluid leaking from the transmission into the transfer case through the transfer case input seal. Replace the transfer case input seal..." read more Source: by Ford at http://web.archive.org/web/20120619091228/http://www.thedieselstop.com:80/faq/9497faq/tsb/tsb/files/971213.pdf

    Yo, Sorry was in hospital. Leve it unplugged.
  3. Yo M, Looks as new!

    Yo George, YW! No need to remove bulb with bypass.

    Yo George, Can you try this Procedure?1) Ignition OFF.2) Jumper pin E to pin B. Even a paper clip will do.3) Ignition to RUN (not start).4) Remove jumper after 5 or more seconds have elapsed.6) Go in and read the codes flashed out by the ABS light.All codes are 2 digits long. 3 to 6 seconds between digits in the same code. 15 seconds between codes. I am guessing you have code 17, so check the cab fuses 2, 8 & 5. If same, bypass the 4WABS control module. 4WABS Control Module CONNECTOR Bypass for PSOM Operation due to Bad 4WABS Control Module; "...jumper 14 to 21, & 39 to 22..." MIESK5 NOTE;. I did this on our 96; The 4WABS control module was toast due to 2 microprocessor failures... Pic by Turboghost

    Yo George, See to say, there isn't a 71 Code. I pulled the bulb after the control module puked and yard modules turned out bad as well, with no returns.

    Yo Skip, Welcome! Won't crank or won't start? Cranking problem could be ignition switch, neutral safety switch, starter solenoid, starter, or any wiring in between those. Check for 12v at starter solenoid "S" terminal with the key in START. If you get 12v there than check the solenoid, starter or cable connections. If you don't check the ignition switch, neutral safety switch, or wiring between. If it just won't start check for spark and fuel. Borrow a spark tester and checkmfor spark at the plug wire ends. Remove the air cleaner. While looking in the throat of the carburetor, pump the throttle linkage. A working pump will squirt fuel into the carburetor. However, if no fuel appears, verify the tank has gas and check the fuel line and fuel filter for blockages. Visually inspect the pump. Inspect the fuel pump visually. If fuel is dripping, the diaphragm is faulty and you need a new pump. Another way to check the pump is disconnect the fuel line at the carburetor and place it in a container. Crank the engine to see if the pump is pushing any fuel through the line. Strong steady spurts of fuel mean the pump is working. No fuel or a weak stream means a bad pump, a plugged fuel filter, fuel line blockage. For wiring diagrams, see http://bronco.com/technical/wiring.shtml
  8. o M, Nice! Cleaned headlight haze. Then storms came next up is to clean all weatherstripping then apply silicone to all except to sides that touch glass. Ford does recommend, "Use Silicone Lubricant C0AZ-19553-AA (jelly) and D7AZ-19553-AA (spray) or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESR-M13P4-A on the weatherstrips whenever necessary. Silicone lubricant helps avoid weatherstrip squeaks and retards excess weatherstrip wear from chafing. It also helps to retain alignment by reducing friction between the glass and the rubber weatherstrip. miesk5 note, test the silicone on a regular styrofoam cup first; if the cup gets funky or melts, then the can or tube contans oil, a regular occurrence now, esp if from China.Use Multi-Purpose Grease Spray D7AZ-19584-AA or equivalent meeting Ford specifications ESR-M1C159-A and ESB-M1C106-B to lubricate lgate hinges. Apply an even coat to all hinge pivot points as outlined in the maintenance schedules or when a binding or squeaking condition occurs..."Apply dry (Teflon) lube to the flocked surfaces that touch the glass; dry lube prevents noise & abrasion, and allows the glass to move faster. "Take off the TG access cover and spray Tri-Flow in the tracks on either side so the regulator toggles slide up and down easy" by JKossarides

    Yo M, Congrats on the big boy! If our 96 wasn't running and looking so good, we would like the biggie to cart around our grandchildren to the beach. Have fun as I see you have done already!
  10. Yo M, Did you purchase it? I like the specs!
