Driver of the Broncno

The bus I ride is so short it is a yellow Smart Car full of squirrels, monkeys and clowns.

Took a break from my other hobbies to put some time in working on the Bronco. Cleaned up the transmission cooler lines, one will probably work, will have to make one for the other side. Scratched the head where to put a filter for the transmission, probably will go under the battery tray but need to purchase the filter head. Couldn't go any farther on that so changed out the speedo cable. Found that over time many other wires were shoved through the hole that I needed to get the nut through so spend time chasing wires and relocating the ones I could. Eventually had to cut a wire to get the old speedo cable out. Finally got the other one installed. In the process I determined it was time to redo the wiring for the Bronco. Snowball time. Maybe it will be done by fall...

Are they '66s too.. the tags? You know Terry, you are lucky enough you should hold out for consecutive tags with the last four digits the same numbers of your consecutive vin numbered Broncos! A guy with your luck could probably find them!

Replaced a missing bolt that held the passenger Beard seat to its tracks, seat is no longer feeling like an ejection seat.
