Introduction Post

Hi I am a 20yo college student from northeast Mississippi. Ill get right down to business, I bought my Bronco a 1989 Eddie Bauer off of craigslist on July 4th 2016. My Dad named him Bucky. It was my DD for months until in January of 2017 I blew a head gasket on my way back to the University of Mississippi from my home . Needless to say I was a bit steamed but I have a little bit of mechanic skills and my father has more so I came up with a plan. I am going to have a build thread started in a few weeks to detail my progress through a 4bt and zf5 swap as well as a SAS from a 2000 f250. Any advice yall the community could give would be most appreciated.

Good luck, I wasn't too impressed when I put a 4BT in mine and have since pulled it out.

Also, if you haven't found it already go check out and sign up. There's several builds on there on OBS Broncos and F150s with lots of good info and ideas.

For your build as well as any questions, it is better to post and ask each seperately in Noobie Bronco Tech Questions. Flame free zone. This will get more attention and you can build up your post count to get into other sections such as Bronco and Ford Parts/Accessories (75 posts required to view).

Common Replies to FAQs includes for example:
How to use search (Advanced)
Baba Looey's Favorite FSB Links (lots and lots of tech links)
Here are some wiring diagrams (partial, 86 through 96) and Technical Service Bulletins, (80 through 96) same as by Ford; Search Wiring Diagrams

Enjoy our site & please VOTE FSB for Top4x4 site once daily @ - Listing some of the top 4x4 and Off Road sites on the web!

See my partially recovered Bronco web site ...Will need to clean up dead links & add many more new links some day. Thanks to Mr. Schwim!
