Hey mj
I looked at that bronco and it wouldn't start, tires very nice and 3/4ton running gear[8D]. lol with the tub - was in rough shape underneath. What did you pick it up for if you don't mind me asking.

SHIT HAPPENS !!!!!!

I gave him $2300
sold the projection for $200
for some reason the computer would intermitantly not turn on the fuel pump
if you jumped the solenoid it would fire instantly
the fuel pressure guage made it easy to see the problem

rather then try and fix it I pulled it off as soon as I got home :)

I bought it for the lockers, I wouldn't have even looked at it without the dual detroits.
it had spit the caps out of the long shaft, I replaced the long side shafts and both side ujoints
then in less then an hour of playing I spit the caps off the short side so got to do it again this time with full circle snap rings
the grinding on the disc brakes to clear 15" rims is ugly, needs new 3/4ton caliper brackets

tbm scammed the tires for his Broco.
I have his 16" rims and retread XLs on it now, looks fugly

the tub is roached badly but we have 3 more of them, 1 other is non repairably but we should get 2 workable
building a rotiserie for the tubs soon
will do one for tbm first, swap fixed one onto his chassis
then repair his for my chassis

the dilemma I have is what to do with my POS chev
all the turbo parts are sitting here beside me
