    Im not waving at new Broncos, anymore.

    When I'm on my bike I waive at everyone from the Harleys to the giant Hondas, sport bikes to mopeds. I have a modified 50cc scooter from when I was younger that I used to ride all over the place. I noticed that sport bikes would waive to me on that but not the Harley crowd. I feel like if you...

    Im not waving at new Broncos, anymore.

    I'm pretty burned out by the number of new jeeps I see driving around every day but I'll never understand the hate thrown at them by people outside of the jeep community. I grew up around jeeps and whenever I drive one I try to remember to waive.

    Im not waving at new Broncos, anymore.

    I've seen this in the jeep community lately.. which strikes me as so odd because I've also seen a decrease in waving within the jeep community..

    Fixing up my 1970 Bronco, where do I start?

    What was the purpose of the foam inserts? We're going to replace all the hoses and everything before we try to really run it. Is the filter something we should be replacing or just eliminating? Is there a modern equivalent like this thing or is this setup junk now?

    Fixing up my 1970 Bronco, where do I start?

    No I don't believe it had one when my father got it. The extensions are maybe 5 inches. There's some metal plating hanging down behind the bumper possibly for something to sit in? The truck was kitted out for wheeling. It has Detroit lockers front and rear.. it's quite the tank.

    Fixing up my 1970 Bronco, where do I start?

    I don't believe it has a body life. If you are going off the front bumper that's sort of an illusion. The bumper sticks outward further than stock because of some welded on extensions. I assume it was maybe outfit with a winch at some point in it's life. I can crawl under and check though. The...

    Fixing up my 1970 Bronco, where do I start?

    At first I thought the can thing was a remote oil filter but finding the actual oil filter cleared that up. The lines disappear under the engine it looks like. I'm going to go back with the creeper from my house and poke around underneath at some point in the next week. I can check the ignition...

    Finally rolled the Bronco into the garage and started cleaning it up. Looks like we might already have a couple preexisting upgrades here?

    Engine/Carb rebuild

    I looked up hydraulic roller conversion in the forum search and my head basically exploded. I need to find some information I'm not using to purge from my brain before I can make the room to understand what is going on with this and the implications of the conversion.

    That does make sense

    Engine/Carb rebuild

    Was anything changed on the stock carb or was it just reinstalled? This is honestly why I'm asking. I don't want to get the thing back together and have it acting up.. I wonder if a rejet or something would have helped the stock carb? The main reason I'm entertaining swapping the cam is...

    Engine/Carb rebuild

    Having my stock 302 rebuilt and I'm weighing swapping in something like the Edelbrock preformer cam. I've read about the timing and I've seen threads about recurving the distributor (which I'm still slightly confused about).. with these potential changes, are there any changes that would need to...

    Fixing up my 1970 Bronco, where do I start?

    I'm doing a frame up on mine (Squinge = younger brother = easier project).. it's absolutely nuts how fast the budget dries up. It's also nuts how hard it is to find parts right now. I'm waiting indefinitely on the inner tail lamp pocket section.

    This is absolutely fantastic! I can't thank you enough!

    Correct. He parked it and then never got back to it.

    Fixing up my 1970 Bronco, where do I start?

    The current endpoint is to take what is there and make it safe/functional. Right now he's running the factory 302, Edelbrock 4 barrel, factory 3 speed manual converted to a floor shift. Already has 33s and 4:10 gears. It was built up pretty well when our father got the thing. I've suggested...

    Fixing up my 1970 Bronco, where do I start?

    I think this is the goal. We started making a list of things; fluids, hoses, brakes, plugs.. but I'm very sure we are going to forget something so I encouraged him to reach out here for some additional guidance. My truck was too far gone to do it this way but his is pretty solid. It's just been...

    Fixing up my 1970 Bronco, where do I start?

    The body and frame are solid enough. Not perfect, but road worthy. The goal, and please correct me if I'm wrong Squinge, it to get it running. From there he can figure out what needs to be changed/upgraded/etc.

    Horsepower?

    I started digging around again from back when I first got my Rover and had a million over-the-top plans for it. There's a site out there called Expedition Land Rover that is put together by a lady who drives around in a huge Series Rover camper. At some point she swapped a 302 into it. There's a...
