Swapped on the new KO2s.. The DC Extremes are a little louder, harder to balance, and crappy on ice than Id like. They do awesome in the woods however.

Also replacing my ground with a 2 gauge wire.
Figured the easiest and best way was to pull the alt. Pretty slimy down there!

Finished the ground wiring. Again, Id gladly strangle the guy who design the alternator adjustment lock down - that bolt in next to impossible to get to - worst part of the entire job!!!

I considered a dual battery setup.

My battery was dead about 4 days after starting and driving fine a few days ago. after a full recharge outside the truck, it still wouldn't start the truck when I put it back in.
I didn't put the meter on it, but i'd be willing to bet that i've lost a cell. Its 5 years old and probably at the end of its life anyway.

I've wanted to do dual batteries since before I put the last new one in. I did order some new battery cable terminals. No matter how good I buy, they always seem to turn to crap when its time to charge or replace a battery.

Guess i decided bronco needed more shop time and $...

car has had a slight miss that got worse...I thought i had bought some bad gas so filled with some premium...

THE truck never labored to accelerate but would slightly pause even at 60 like an ignition short, or electrical short . It would lightly bounce the tack idle when it did this.

So i went around pushing in on the plug wires looking for a loose one. When i went back out later it started..idled a little bit then just died... now it turns over flickers dash lights when i try to start it and nothing. ,Truck smells rich.. TOW TRUCK TIME! DAMN now what grrrr

While I'm still in the restoration planning stage of a 79, I've decided to go with move bumper kits front and rear. I want to modify the rear to support the spare like on the ICON BR.
Will be a daily driver so no winch, will go with the options for lights front and back.

Does it turn over at full speed or is it laboring? Id start by checking the battery or having it checked. Cables okay? Are you getting spark from the coil/TFI to the distributor while it is turning over? Whats the inside of the distributor cap and rotor look like?

Ordered a set of Bilstein 5100's and a full front end suspension bushing kit. Should make it ride like a Cadillac! (As the saying goes.) I just hope it rides like a newer truck! LOL

I DID THE PCV swap.... moved hose to center vacuum tree..moved brake boost hose to old vacuum port for PCV

Also check http://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum/...-tsb-ford.html to see if the 89 BKO is affected by the "TSB Recall", gases settling in cylinders 4 & 8 where re-routing/exchanging the brake booster vacuum hose from the top of the plenum to the PCV connection at the back of the plenum and PCV routes up top where the BB line goes and you're good.

You may need longer hoses to reach but no more then $10.00 for both...easy to do....

Not today, but first thing Tomorrow.

PCV Swap.
(the Oily plenum thing has been bugging me for a while.)

Many thanks to @bsd4083 for posting that here.
(did the search and read the whole thread, makes Perfect sense)

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Noticed I have an intermittent whine/chirping coming from what seems to be my right rear axle area. Not really loud, but noticeable when traveling next to a concrete median/wall over 30 MPH. Shocks? Wheel bearing? Something in the drum brake hardware let go? Leaf spring isolator grenaded?

I love a good mystery!!!

Looks like that new axle build is coming along just in time. Might need to throw some new Bilstein's into the mix, too. Sucks because I really like those old air shocks when I'm loaded with tools/gear.

My 78 has developed a rattle on deceleration and my 92 has developed a vibration under a load both of which sound and feel driveline related

yesterday, first time driving it in about a week and I picked up a huge screw in my tire...



fortunately I recently got a new tire repair kit..



plugged it up while I was in the parking lot at Lowes..



aired it up and I'm back in business. I love having an air compressor on my rig..
