66-96 Ford Broncos - Early & Full Size

Extended Storage

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the help on previous post all. I am closing in on getting the rig back up and running. It has been in garage without running for about 2 years and wanted to be sure I covered all my bases before firing the beast up.

I've just installed new fuel tank. Also will be filling tires up, changing oil and charging battery. Are there any key items I need to check before turning the key? I have never had it sit so long before, unfortunately the day job had been in the way. Thanks for any tips!

There is a way to pump up the oil pressure prior to start but it involves R&R'ing the dizzy.

OR- You can pump it up a bit by pulling the ctr. dizzy wire..., then crank the eng. a bit. You may see a flicker in the oil pressure gage.

Put the wire back on & fire it up.

How's the carb..?  Someone should watch while cranking so as to be sure it isn' t  over flowing due to a stuck float or needle-n-seat.

Don't want any "fire"  ;)
