What is the black rubber flap hanging below my front bumper where a skid plate would be? I have a '95 XL.

No, I'm not talking about that. I know what that is, I mean the flexible rubber flap that almost looks like a mudflap, but is right in the center of the vehicle, in front of the front axle... I'll try to get a pic.


Nevermind. Figured it out. It's a rubber piece that protects the bottom of the engine (belts, radiator, etc.) from debris. It had falled down and was flapping like a rubber mud flap. I got it tucked back up where it needs to be.

It doesn't protect anything. It prevents air from circulating under the radiator.

97 351 >8500 gvwr, speed density.
what is this in center of pic, right in front of the tad and tab solenoids? Is it the diverter? Every picture or diagram I've seen is differant than mine.
I get a ticking sound from it, is something missing? I appreciate any help.

All the pics you find here will be different because Broncos weren't offered >8500GVWR, and that arrangement is specific to heavy engines. But it's a combined diverter/bypass valve that works exactly like the one used on lighter trucks.

Thanx, Steve, I appreciate the reply. I just thought somebody had to have swapped one of these before. Now my question is, why do I get a ticking sound from it? If i cover the two holes under the red vacuum line, it gets quieter, but doesn't stop. Thanx again.

Seeing as how my dad never had any SUVs besides the bronco, this has to be some part of it (i hope). i found this in a stash of stuff in the garage. It is too thin to fit across both sides of the bronco like a normal cargo cover, but it has a cut out for what looks like a spare tire.

Nope. The fact that it doesn't fit should have told you that much. The fact that there are no mounting points for it in the bedwalls should have confirmed it. Broncos didn't get a cargo cover until '94, and only high-trim trucks optionally. Click my black Bronco in my sig & read the captions in the Cargo Cover album.

Frame alignment. Look at inset 10 in this diagram:

That was quick. :)

Didn't know the factory used those for alignment too. Wondered about it.

Where's the diagonal-dimensions for that frame's diagram?

And why just those two "point rivets" and not all of them included in that
diagram?

"point rivets" had another use (the only one I really knew anything about)
anybody know that use? :)

I don't understand your questions. The first one looks like you're asking where something is that's not there. It's NOT there. I didn't create that diagram. If you want to see the original, click the link in the caption. If you want diagonals, this one has some:

Got one for '91 Broncos?
Is it in the '91 Ford Shop Manual by any chance?
(don't remember seeing it)

Yes, the first one is for '80-91 Broncos. No, the shop manuals don't contain frame diagrams. And more to-the-point: the diagonals DIDN'T CHANGE from '80-96, so use the 2nd diagram. The only significant change was the frame accordion & front bumper tabs.

Cool, thanks for that, Steve gonna use it pretty quick. :)

---------------------
So back to the use for all those pins hanging from the frame...

In those diagrams it shows -one- use for only -two- of the pins.
What's the other use that includes all the pins at the same time? xD

"All"??? Ford truck frames each only have 4 pointed rivets: 2 behind the front axle, and 2 forward of the rear axle. You can see the silhouette of one of the rears here against the muffler, just to the L of my Xmbr tube, at the lowest point on the frame:



The other rear is barely visible in silhouette in this pic:



One of the fronts is visible here between the Y-pipes, just behind the shock tower:



All the other rivets are common (rounded), and just hold the frame components together.

Come on you guys, nobody but this dumb retired ditch digger
knows what these things were installed by Ford are for? ;)

Yeah, Ford had a use for all of 'em at the same time! :)
I'm telling you that as a hint, they have a -specific- use. :)

Maybe I don't remember right but I thought my Bronco had
six and my '75 F150 had eight of these pointed studs...


Here's another hint...
I fiNgured out what they were for back in the mid 70's. :)

ps- I'm guessing Ford didn't really intend them to be used for
measuring. The company that made those frame dimension
diagrams made use of two of 'em, but that wasn't what Ford
went to the trouble and expense to install them for.
...is my guess.
