Well the bronco two that i bought from fb2dude ( broc ) had a problem with the ignition which is why it wouldnt turn over or start. I fixed that and also had the clutch slave replaced. The truck ran fawlessy minus a little bit of a low idle and stalling on inclines when idling while wheeling.

I was waiting for a buddy outfront of his house and i decided to shut the truck off.. I tried to fire it back up 2 minutes later with no hope. just crank crank crank nothing.. i thought maybe it was flooded so i bumped started it.. it ran for like 4 seconds down the road then bogged out and died.. so i pushed it into the driveway and left it there... i tried starting it a couple days later with no luck.. i think its a fuel problem because the ammount of fuel that should be in that engine from me priming it should smell but i dont smell anything when i get out.. any ideas? im thinkin fuel pump?


its a 84 bronco two with the carbed v6 2.8

Try the filters first, they're cheaper to replace. Then try the pump.

Make sure the lines are not pinched or blocked anywhere too.

probably over your head but......... go buy a 2.8l carb from a 70 something mustang. then take all the ignition shit off of it to. like coil, dist, igition box wires etc. and swap it over. thats what i did when i culdnt get my 83 to run right. that swap sovled all problems.

cant be sure without puttin a gauge on it and checking, just guessing can sometimes cost a bit too much money. just make sure you have spark as well . ie check coil for internal shorts and wires if no spark, fuel try spraying some brake clean down the carb and see if it runs for a while it it flashes up you got a fuel problem.

a fuel pump and filter are dirt cheap, 30$ mabe. or like said above just get rid of the emissions system because its prob causeing alot of your problems.
