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.

Changed the wiring to the starter,starter relay and the small wire from relay to the starter. All of the wires were burnt at one end or the other. Bigger, Better, More Power!



I put heat shrink on all of the ends, on the #2 cable the heat shrink started out huge and ended up like this.



My battery has brass post so I replaced the lead terminals with brass terminals with studs. All of the terminals presently are connected to the positive and negative terminal of the battery. This is just to get it running. I intend on using a 250 amp 4 post bus bar to spread things out a little.



I also replaced all of the emissions vacuum lines. Most of them were broken



I did not have all silicone lines so I had to utilize some rubber. I do have silicone lines in route but as of yet they have not arrived.

The dull battery tray did not work out more on that later. I am going to have a mechanic friend of mine hook up the electric fans so they turn on with the air conditioning.

Made up a bracket to mount my CB antenna to. Its 3/16 steel cut and ground to shape.



Then I took a scrap of exhaust pipe and made some armor for the coax cable connection







Here it'll get three holes drilled in the mount and spare tire carrier bracket. Then I'll tap the holes in the spare tire carrier and bolt it down. I've done it bolted to the side of the carrier mount before with great success.



Just enough room for the cable to come out

Replaced the tailgate window regulator roller on the drivers side. It had disappeared and the window wasn't going up correctly. Cut the stud off, ground down what was left till I could just knock the rest out. Bolted the new one in, greased the track with some motorcycle chain lube. Works good as new. Dorman part 74402. About $4.00 at local parts house. Ordered last night had it today.

What did you do to your bronco today?

Installed new to me fan shroud. No more coolant hose in the fan issues.
