I'm using a Bronco "reverse flow" radiator on my '62 Ranchero project. I figured, it's a good fit for the Ranchero and the weld ins & brackets are available.
So, now I need the hoses. I see that WH has them, but my concern is that I've mounted my radiator centered on the core support. This...
I'm having to strip the bed on my Ranchero. It will need priming, but I'm confused about all the primers I see. Self etching, sanding, epoxy, and automotive primer. Also, I'm not equipped for spraying big stuff and will likely be using aerosol cans.
I'm planning on using an in tank fuel injection pump for my project.
I can't find the dimension of the pump assembly that protrudes above the tank from any of the manufacturers.
From where I stand, this is the most important dimension to be sure the assembly will fit.
Am I missing something...
Someone recommended that I use a "high flow" thermostat.
Just what is that? Do I need one?
I checked at Summit, Jegs, and Speedway, and they look light a regular thermostat. Some are the barrel type and some are the typical disc type.
My '77/302 Duraspark died on me the other day. Had to tow it home.
The culprit turned out to be a broken wire on the distributor pick-up coil.
I fixed that pretty easily.
When I started the engine, it would idle for a few seconds, pop out of the exhaust... idle, pop... idle, pop.
My 102 year old Father-in-Law was asked to be in the Sawdust Jubilee parade in Riddle Oregon this last weekend. The temperature was over 100, and marching him was out of the question, so we used the Bronco.
My JB Fab twin sticks really came in handy. I was able to use low range and first gear...
I had planned to use this Maverick 8" in my '62 Ranchero, but I was afraid it wouldn't hold up to my motor upgrade. It's going into a 51 Ford Custom Club Coupe. I'm really excited to see it go to a great project!
Lately, I've had the spare tire swing out after hitting a good bump.
It's a pretty good surprise when it happens on the freeway. Fortunately, the tether kept it from swinging out into the next lane. :o
Is it because the latch is worn out?
I've been looking at the replacements, but they look...
If anyone has a set of these Pro Form valve covers, I'd like to see if the baffle type. Some cast valve covers have just a bent metal shield rather than a real baffle like on the factory type steel valve covers...
Our local supermarket put in a "Blue" hose at the fuel station. It's the hose for non-ethanol.
Now I won't have to drive to the marina to get real gas for my power equipment.
It seems to make the Bronco happy too. It doesn't have that funky suction cup on the nozzle.
I was getting fuel odor and some seepage from the aux tank. It was coming from the top of the tank, so it had to come out for a leak check.
I capped everything off, added compressed air and dunked it into a kids wading pool to look for bubbles.
While doing this, the rubber ball I was using to...
I'm putting together a Blueprint 347. It came with the timing cover for the standard rotation water pump.
I'm looking for a kit to install serpentine belts on it. It will have power steering, but no A/C. The billet and chrome isn't important to me. Black would be fine.
I was wondering about the experiences from Bronco owners who have installed a Dakota Digital VHX gauge panel.
Is the panel easy to see day and night?
Any problems with installation/calibration?
Quality of the product?
I'm looking at a Dakota Digital gauge package for my '62 Falcon project.
How is the hood clearance on a Bronco using the Edelbrock Pro-Flo EFI system?
I'm considering this setup for my "62 Ranchero project. If it fits the tight hood on a Bronco, It should have no problem with my Ranchero...
