Depends on what you want it to work for.
Basically yes, it will "work" in a Bronco because the engine is still the same. But you can't necessarily just throw all the old Bronco stuff back on. Some of it might work, while other stuff won't.

What is your setup going to be? Do you intend to run a mechanical pump for instance? If so you'll be better off with the front cover and accessories that came with the Bronco. If you don't have that stuff, then most earlier stuff will work. But then you have to worry about the timing pointer matching the marks on the damper ring.

So, what parts do you have, and how will the engine be set up?

Basically are you running standard rotation V-Belt drive or reverse rotation serpentine drive? Do you need mechanical fuel pump or electrical fuel pump off the engine?

Your 4 bolt damper will not work with the Bronco V-belt system that used 3 bolt damper.

I did order a new timing chain cover today, and a water pump for the serp setup . I think I will just need to find a block off plate since Im running Fuel injection.
