Yeah pig pen this here's the rubber duck. There's a road block up on the cloverleaf and them bears is wall to wall...

Got my Cobra 29 nightwatch mounted up last night while I'm waiting on engine parts. This is the cat's meow of CB radios, with built in tuner, night mode, PA, dynamike, etc. Itll be hooked up to a 102" whip on a 6" spring.

Its bolted directly to the Shelf-it

This Saturday I pulled out the alternator the fan clutch, fan shroud and the radiator.

Replaced with a Champion three core radiator with a leadfoot racing shroud and dual fans. Upper and lower radiator hoses and clamps.



Alternator was replaced with a one wire large case 200 amp from left eye blind. A little modification to the bracket was required. The upper mount on the original alternator was threaded, and the large case was not so additional hardware was needed.


This Saturday I will fill the coolant system and bleed it, along with connecting the new alternator and installing a dual battery tray.

Sitting in my shop is a set of disk breaks for the rear 8.8 differential. I will be waiting for chrome molly axles and a truss for the top of the differential. I doubt this will be completed prior to The Bronco Invasion.

@S00TLYFE I got the brake conversion from James Duff. It is a complete kit no getting this used part from a junkyard.

Finally got time to remove the transmission pan and install my Punisher Valve Body, While I had the pan off I changed the filter and gasket, at that point I got the chance to install the filter clip and to go a step farther. I drilled the pan and installed a universal drain plug. Took it for a test drive, overall everything has working out. No leaksat the time i parked it. We will see if the feel of the shifting changes anymore than it already has. Kicks like a baby mule in to 2nd but I haven't seen any difference when shifting into that mushy 3rd gear. I did notice it down shifts great wasn't expecting that.

Swapped the rear carpet, trim panels, front and rear seats, chrome fender trim and factory rear floor mat from the 90 donor truck to my 89. Still lots of cleaning to do.

Took off my tow hitch on the 86 to gain some departure angle. Also put on a 4 bulb LED cube for reverse light. And tightened my new header bolts.

Not exactly on the Bronco but had to renew my handicapped parking placard.
So ignorant WA state requires a new Dr. note, new placard, etc. every 5 years.
I get there's abuse but if you're permanently disabled, what a waste of time and money.
Like my foot grew back and I'm just milkin' the bitchin' parking?!?

-14 deg. last night and the Bronco is running like a swiss watch.
I love having a fresh engine and not having to wonder.

I fixed the shifter linkage on my transfer case. With the ZF5, the rod was too short and put the shifter at an angle that would make it pop out of 4 low.
Now, I can get the length just right, and it shifts perfectly again!

Took it to the shop Friday to have the front end gone through and Truetracs installed front and rear, BUT it came to me this morning that I didn't take the locking lug nut socket so I ran it out today.

Also took the front shocks that arrived Saturday to him to install since he'll have the old ones off anyway.
