Just read this entire build. Learning a lot. Was wanting to see how the new carb worked out, but noticed you haven't posted in a while. Any updates?

I have been reading through threads again to get fired up on the bronco again. The new carb had been working really well. The rear end went out a few months ago though. I had been waiting for it to happen so I could rebuild the pumpkin. I have been too busy getting my business up and running to really have any fun. http://www.hubercad.com/ Things are going good now, so I should be able to set aside some time and money to get back to it.

When it is as nice outside as it is right now, it is hard not to drop the top and go cruising....

Hope everybody is doing well.

Good to see you back at man, love this Bronco

You will not belive me, but I worked on my Bronco...


YANKED THE AXLES

DRINK BEER AND PLUG THE HOLE SO IT DOESN'T LEAK. (THATS WHAT SHE SAID )

CRACK THE SEAL

YANK THE THIRD MEMBER , AND THEN REMOVE THE PUMPKIN.

LOOK AT THOSE HERTZIAN FATIGUE PITS (SORRY, GETTING ALL ENGINEERY AGAIN). THAT IS PROBABLY THE CHUNKY SOUND I WAS HEARING.

Next move is to find a new third member, and reverse the above process with new seals and bearings, maybe disk brakes and more beer ...I have a slab to work on now, so I am running out of excuses for why it is still sitting there.

Just read through- very nice work. I'm sure I'll be in the market for a motor someday- how is yours working out for you! I figured you would've mentioned it if it crapped out. Nice job, beautiful truck, keep it up!

I have not had a chance to put more than about 3000 miles on it, but so far it has been great. No complaints. It has been sitting for quite a while though. Hoping my neglect has not fouled it up too bad.

Just saw this and was thinking of posting it! Haha you must've gotten the newsletter too. Can't believe I couldn't find it anywhere else since it's been up for a couple weeks.
Pretty wild design- but obviously has some skills.
