    Yo, TS 90150 wrote; "When I swapped my 90 from 302 to 351 the brackets are the same. Just more holes. The 351 uses the widest while the 302 uses the narrower ones. This is on a serpentine pulley system," he has a 90 F150, but I'm pretty sure it is same as Bronco.

  7. Yo, As a guess, PCV valve is on passenger side.
  8. Yo,

    Hope all is well my friend!!!!

  9. Yo, Manual Hub OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS: ONLY use fingers to turn dials. DO NOT USE PLIERS. Set the hublock dials to FREEand transfer case to 2-high for all driving that does not require four wheel drive. To engage four wheel drive set the hublock dials to LOCK and set the transfer case to 4-high or 4-low. Return the transfer case to 2-high before disengaging hublocks. Do not drive on hard surface roads in 4-wheel rive because it can cause drive train damage. Do not move the vehicle if the hubs are anywhere between FREE and LOCK or it will damage the hublocks. Driving with only one hublock engaged can cause drive train damage. Driving with the hublocks in Free ™ and transfer case in 4-low can cause drive train damage. To ensure lubrication of the front axle, engage hublocks for a minimum of one mile monthly..." Source: by Warn® Many owners when driving on in snow/icesurfaces and then getting on dry surfaces usually keep hubs locked, then shift to and from 4x4 high. Some drive train wear can occur, but I haven't anything happen since buying our 96 new and driving in a snow state. "...The t-case disconnects the front driveshaft from the transmission, and the hubs disconnect the axleshafts from the wheels. The driveshaft is ALWAYS connected to the diff & axleshafts. Depending on how tight your diff is, both axleshafts MAY turn when you turn the d'shaft while BOTH hubs are unlocked, but at least one of them has to no matter what. If the d-shaft won't turn with both front wheels off the ground (or the hub locks removed), then the t-case is still in 4. If either axleshaft won't turn with its hub UNlocked AND the t-case in 2 or N, then that hub is stuck locked. I suspect you'll find some carmelized grease, and some surface rust on the lock rings, and probably a spring or 2 heavily rusted, to the point that they're ruined. But that's just a guess. Take both hub locks OUT of the hubs, and then roll the truck a little. You don't need to remove the tires, or even jack the front end up since the locks don't bear ANY weight. If the d'shaft still turns, the problem is in your t-case....."by Steve

    Yo Dog, Instead of the thumbnails, go directly to https://shop.broncograveyard.com/Weatherstripping-Bronco/products/196/ "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 slides & tracks isWith PTFE in the tracks on either side so the regulator toggles slide up and down easy" by JKossaridesFord recommends, "Use Silicone Lubricant C0AZ-19553-AA (jelly) and D7AZ-19553-AA (spray) or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESR-M13P4-A on the door and window weatherstrips whenever necessary. Silicone lubricant helps avoid weatherstrip squeaks and retards excess weatherstrip wear from chafing between the door glass upper frame and the weatherstrip. It also helps to retain door window alignment by reducing friction between the glass frame and the rubber weatherstrip. Use Multi-Purpose Grease Spray D7AZ-19584-AA or equivalent meeting Ford specifications ESR-M1C159-A and ESB-M1C106-B to lubricate door and tailgate hinges. Apply an even coat to all hinge pivot points as outlined in the maintenance schedules or when a binding or squeaking condition occurs..."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.

  14. Running Cold

    Yo, YW! As our friend Skitter302 suggested about the core; Heater Core; Plugged Heater Core: Check to ensure the engine coolant is at the proper level, then start the engine and let it run until it is warmed to operating temperature. Turn on the heater and feel the inlet and outlet heater water hoses (18472) to the heater core (18476). If the inlet heater water hose is hot and outlet heater water hose is cooler, the heater core may be plugged. NOTE: Make sure that an appropriate container is used to collect any coolant that is lost during the heater core bleed procedure. To bleed air from heater core, remove the hose at the outlet connection of the heater core (hose leading to the water pump). Allow any trapped air to flow out. When a continuous flow of coolant is obtained, connect the hose to the core. Do not overtighten heater hose clamps. Pressure Test; mieskk5 note, most shops just run flusher solution through heater core by placing temp at hot, to floor and fan on med. Some just force a small garden hose nozzle into one heater hose to flush out through the other hose. Drain the cooling system. Disconnect the heater water hoses from the heater core. If constant tension clamps are used, be sure they are properly positioned. Install a short piece of heater water hose (approximately 100mm [4 inches] long) onto each tube of the heater core. Fill the heater core and heater water hoses with water and install Plug BT-7422-B and Adapter BT-7422-A from Radiator/Heater Core Pressure Tester 014-R1052 or equivalent in the ends of the heater water hoses. Secure the heater water hoses to the heater core, plug and adapter with clamps. Item Part Number Description 1 — Bleed Valve (Part of 014-R1052) 2 014-R1052 Radiator/Heater Core Pressure Tester 3 7422 Adapter B 4 7422 Plug 5 8287 Hose Clamp 6 18C266 Heater Hose (4 Inches Long) Attach Radiator/Heater Core Pressure Tester 014-R1052 or equivalent to the adapter. Close the bleed valve at the base of the gauge and pump 207 kPa (30 psi) of air pressure into the heater core. Observe the pressure gauge for a minimum of three minutes. The pressure should not drop. If the pressure does not drop, no leaks are indicated. If the pressure drops, check the connections at the core for leaks. If the heater water hoses do not leak, remove the heater core from the vehicle and test the heater core as described in this section. Refer to Section 12-02 for removal and installation procedures for the heater core.
  15. Running Cold

    Yo, It was 4 deg F here this morning ... with blizzard yesterday. if I started our Bronco now, I probably wouldn't have heat for first 2 miles while at 25 mph, and maybe longer if driving into the wind. Try driving at 25 mph and see if you get heat like I would.
