    3 speed manual help..

    I removed the trans, 3 speed manual factory trans, and when I reinstalled it the gear selector is jammed. The rear gear selector works, front will not move, stuck in neutral. Can anyone give me an idea of what happened? I didn't drop it, pull on the shaft, although I did stand it on the...

    CTM u-joints in front axle

    I was told I should not use the CTM u-joints in the front axle of my daily driver, unless I want to service or lube them weekly. Is this a true concern? How hard is it to get to the u-joints on the axle to lube, do the wheels need to be removed?

    Diode, scratching my head

    I wired my entire truck myself. I realized quickly I have a problem back feeding my parking lights when I apply the brake switch. I am using a Flaming River steering column so this isn't a factory turn signal switch and I am using separate flashers for turn signals and hazards. I placed a diode...

    Gauges inop

    I have replaced my factory gauges and the IVR expecting them to work and they don't. I saw a + and an S, I think on the back side or on the terminals. I have power coming from the IVR to the + and the sending unit signal on the other terminal. I thought maybe the cluster is not seeing a ground...

    I can't keep 35 pounds of air in my tires. The beadlocks leak with pressure above 30 pounds. I have applied aviation permatex to the sealing edge, which helped. Any ideas? Anyone gone inner tubes inside a beadlock wheel? Ugh.

    I have a resealed my oil pan two times since the original build due to an oil leak at the rear seal. It is a stream of dripping. Glad it wasn't the rear main seal! So I mentioned to one of the guys in the shop my weekend contained resealing the pan, he said too much internal pressure. So, I have...

    302 to 351

    I need a little clarification please. I have a cracked block on my newly rebuilt 302, it has new aluminum heads that I want to use. If I switch to a 351 Windsor will the heads fit, I think they will since they have the head bolt inserts. I think my headers will fit too. How about motor mounts...

    Going to body shop tomorrow

    About ten years ago I started my Bronco dream, I spent four years with almost every available moment in the garage. I touched every inch making it new. It was wrecked in the left front, the right side had rusted away, the floor was gone and the oil pan had metal shavings inside. Well I...

    New Hood

    I purchased a new Bronco Design hood, very very nice. I got the medium rise design with the interior panel too. Now it looks very nice it doesn't fit my custom air cleaner. I have a Ford Motorsports carbon fiber 13" that originally hit the throttle linkage. So I cut it in two places and flipped...

    IN Used tires

    I purchased new tires for my wife's mall masher. I have four Pro Comp Xtreme A/Ts 35X12.50X17. These are too big to ship easy, maybe strapped on a pallet will work. These have about 3/4 of an inch of tread. One has a bit of bounce on the road, make a decent set for budget minded off roader.

    Door Insert, attaching?

    I spent a good deal of time yesterday cutting my inserts around the flange edges to fit my doorways. I found the previous owners only work, I should have taken out before I built around it; but I had no way at the time to know better. So moving on, the threshold is a little too high. This caused...
