That sucks....not the fact you are drinking a beer, but the pump shaft issue sucks....You probably wanted to change your oil pan gasket anyway

I had a bit of a rough idle on the drivers side. I have been trying to get my carb to tune out correctly with little avail. I didn't like the ticking sound so I pulled the valve cover. Two bent pushrods, so I'm waiting on parts so I'll put in the tach and carpet strips.

I allong with a neighbor were able to get the ignition system to work but for some reason the fuel pump won't remain engaged. I do believe the orange bronco will live again!!!!

The above has been gathered from numerous sources. The reader should assume the information is accurate, but no validation is claimed by this author.

Yeah, I think I know what I'm talking about....

You put gas in your oil?

well i drive it everyday, but i installed the vintage air heater box and a/c compressor bracket, rebuilt the 31spline fw 9" and swapped it in, built a headlight harness to run on relays for my new h-4's, bought a set of latemodel heads for m fuelly351w and just finished a 3g conversion that cost me 20 bucks at the junkyard, that's been the best thing i've done to it so far to the truck, and the least expensive, this has all been in the last month, i just bought the calipers and a few other things for the fw front hp dana44, it looks pretty goofy driving around with a fullwidth rear and stock d30 front. the 3g swap was yesterday, today i'll probably install the water temp, volt, and oil pressure guages. i just can only do so much as it is my only daily driver

was able to drive her to work today
I love getting to talk to people at every stop light. What year is that? My dad had one while I was growing up ... etc. Makes a usually boring drive rather interesting.

what have you done to your bronco today?

Trying to get my new seats mounted in the ole girl for OCBR. Started out with a cage seat mount thing but didn't like it, so I am backing up to go just to the floor for now and then tying into the cage later (somehow?) so I worked on fabbing a seat platform (not finished)

Oh yeah, I also finished up my 9" skidplate. I did some pretty good damage last year at OCBR when I sat it down hard on a large pointed rock. Welded the piss out of it and just kept making it worse. Finally patched it up and decided this would be good insurance for this years OCBR. Wild horses skid plate and I beleive it's 3/16. I see Currie sells the same one, so I would guess that currie is building them and WH is reselling them but whatever it's a nice peice. By the way for anyone looking to install one, it will take some heat and large hammer to get it to conform to the shape of the 9' so you can weld it up.

I started to replace my Headers, now I am pulling the motor, trans., and Tranfer Case. I seem to be heading the wrong way again. I have tried not to pull the motor, however the frame is dirty and the engine compartment needs paint too. I thought I would do this at another time. Only I have been tooling on it for nearly two years and still have at least six months ahead of me. It is the addiction calling...

'76 5.5" JD Monster suspension with a 2" body lift. 35" KM2s with Walker Evans 17X8.5s. 351 cu"/ NP435. Still in project mode.

My wife and my fourteen month daughter got a ride to Jones Beach for the first time since we purchased the bronco, and they really love it. Usually only my 4 year old drives with me most of the time.
