Good Monday evening to you all. I hope it was a Blessed day for everyone in one way or another.
tonights video is taken from the Go pro on the hood of my Bronco


mgD2QAzjIhg


The first set of pictures your going to see, well lets just say I had a terrible brain fart,
when I was organizing these pictures for this week. I would love to tell you a great story,
but the hardest thing to do is tell the truth! So here it goes... I wasnt paying attention
I was making head way, things were going great, I was watching Playoff Hockey when all of a
Sudden, something clicked and I stopped myself I thought for a moment I questioned myself and
then had a hugh conniption fit, My wife and dog looked at me like my wife just shook her head,
my dog went to the other room. Not only were my pictures ands videos backwards but completely
out of sequence. It went from a brand new deck of cards and then they got dropped on a windy day.
So just pretend everything is normal because there was noway I was going to back through a whole
week of pictures and videos reorganize them.























What can i say...... its a completely different trail, and part of a story I already told. Just say BONE HEAD.


























Please forgive me this whole week is Jacked up, The saving grace is it could be worse. I could of deleted them.
Quadr1 is all to fimilar with me and the Delete button. Thats another story for later in the month.
This is another Video from the Go Pro on My Hood. Enjoy and good night!

hello friends,

started to tear down and rebuild the ifs. A nice waste of money that turned out to be









my nifty custom made hub tool



and complete



Then I went into some fun wiring





camaro electric fans


auto fan module




new terminals











I mocked up my light bar bracket and welded it all together









and then started the fun when I brought home the donor truck!





44hd with sterling 10.25





then my wallet took a hefty hit



after this the SAS went on hold for a few months why I moved shops and changed my whole life and business around-

transporting the bronco to the new shop



home sweet home

Saturday after my wheeling adventure I ended it the way all off-roading should be ended, at Dairy Queen getting a blizzard (it was also a good way to thank my girlfriend after I made her walk all over to take videos). After our treat I came out to a not so pleasant site waiting under the Bronco, a big puddle of coolant, so I made the few minute ride home to inspect it while keeping a close eye on the temperature gauge. When I got home and took a look I found fluid was coming from behind the water pump, so I knew what I needed to do. How bad could it be, a quick water pump swap?

Not too bad, until you snap a few bolts and now are pulling the harmonic balancer and timing cover too.

All in all wasn't too bad, I got everything removed and reinstalled up unto the water pump and thermostat. All that's left is a few miscellaneous things and with a little luck the truck will be back on the road tomorrow. What was nice is that it gave us a chance to flush the block. A previous owner must have run straight water for a while and the block is all rusty.

And now for some pictures. I didn't have a free hand to take a ton but my girlfriend got some.

The fold down grill is worth it's weight in gold when you're working under the hood. It would have stunk not to be able to stand on the bumper.

Look at all that sediment

My dad and I working together to get the timing chain cover back in place.

Other than that I didn't get too many interesting pictures of the replacement. The month is still young though and I still have a lot to show. After that incident I really want to get chopping on the Powerstroke swap, and also I'm going to have a photo shoot with another Bronco soon as my special “guest” and I prepare for the Bronco Roundup in June.



Speaking of cooling systems, why not conclude with a video of the Bronco in something “cool”.

I didnt realize how many pictures were taken of this trail, so we are back in the White Tanks Mountains
following this trail to well we just have know idea but it just keeps going & its one wash out after another.
Sometimes seemingly worse than the last so I say lets take some more pictures. here ya go.



































Back out of the White Tanks and over to The Bradshaw Mnts, unfortunately the pictures are of finishing another obstacle on the trail.






































Its the Go Pro Thing again but I like the view it gives.

First ever video of my 78 the day I bought it. Cruisin' down the highway shot by one of my mates. Nothing too exciting, just a short simple vid.

I_uKtf5t5Ls


The story here is we are starting a trail in the first quarter of an obstacle, in the Bradshaw Mnts.















































This Video i believe was suppose to be the first of the ones you have previously watched, nothing like wheeling backwards.

Don't count too fast, Id have to stop for gas every hour and I'd have to let the i6 cool down every so often. 24 hrs at 3500 rpms

I did drive the Mach down to the Burq a few years back but that's whole 'nuther story.

I guess the safe answer would be after...

This is gonna be a difficult month fellas, y'all are making me drool. keep it up!

Tonight I buttoned up everything under the hood, and we’re in luck, no more leaks.

The 302 still runs strong but doesn't have the power I want, which leads into tonight's post.

My quest for more power started off by looking for a 96 Bronco with a 351w. It'd be MAF and would still be OBD2 compatible and seemed like the perfect starting point.

After a bit of searching I found the second black Bronco I would own. A 96 with a 351. It had too many problems to fix (and that's coming from me) but the engine was strong.


So I pulled it, stripped it down, and went about saving and collecting parts for the build. I didn’t want anything crazy but I wanted some guts as well as reliability. With this in mind I decided upon a 393 Stroker Build. I ended up getting an Edelbrock 3881 Truck Intake, a 393 Stroker Kit, a Comp Cams camshaft and timing set, a set of aluminum heads, and a few other odds and ends. In a few days I had planned to take the block to a machine shop and get all the machine work done, but then plans changed. My dad's friend had a 95 F250 diesel he blew the rear out in, and he wanted to get rid of it. He even had a spare rear to go with it, so we worked out a deal and the plans changed for good. All the 393 gear ended up changing hands to another FSB member who's going to put it to good use.

The truck had 224k miles on it, but the amount of power was still pretty kick ass. The only issue(s) was/were the thought of my 5 lug axles snapping, my frame bending, my suspension handling the 1200 pounds of the mammoth of an engine, the time my truck would be down for, etc. etc. That's when this thought hit me, that I had a clean frame sitting under a parts truck in my backyard.

This poor truck had its transmission blown and then it's engine harvested to be put into a Heep. I ended up saving what was left of it from the scrapper because I knew there were some good parts left on it, and it ended up working out well for me.

Then was a little weight reduction, with the fun part coming next. I removed all the body bolts and push pressed the tub one side at a time and slid wooden blocks under the half in the air. Once I did both sides I hooked my winch to the back, and slid the body right off the frame.

Up next is going to be sandblasting the frame, boxing it, and swapping in the entire F250 drivetrain. I'm going to use Superduty leaves in the front and Skyjacker 6 inch leaves in the back and plan to run this setup with 37s. The F250 has a Dana 60 up front so I'll even be able to join the SAS club. Finally, once I have the rolling chassis done with the entire drivetrain installed I'm going to pick up my body, and plop it right on top. Don't worry, I'm going to freshen up everything before I install it, but I'll show more on that as the month progresses. You may ask why I haven't gotten more done on it yet, and it's honestly because our garage has been full with another project, my dad's 70, the "special guest".

Here it is posing with my truck today while getting wet sanded, before its final coat of paint. Now all that's left are some finishing touches and then I'll be able to get back into the garage and start on the Powerstroke swap.

Here's a short exhaust clip of the diesel. I'm biting at the bit to start getting it in.
