Removed the radio, popped a fuse. Removed the overhead console, popped a fuse.
Removed the dome light, popped a fuse.
Disconnected the RKE module. Fuse is still good!

Yaay — I have a speedo and odometer again!!! Dome and door lights still don’t work. Not quite sure why. Not really sure that the door lights worked before, now that I think about it .

Joined the ricer and squatted crowd today and installed wheel spacers. My 15x8’s with 4”BS hit my ‘79 radius arms when turned too sharp. Maybe these will fix that. It’s been raining too hard to test drive tonight.

Started my tire carrier resto. Got everything torn down, sanded, primed and painted. Gotta order some bushings for the mounts now and try to bring the old tire cover back to life. Itís pretty weather beaten, but should be able to get some more life out of it.

Dude, I am doing the same thing right now. You will be my hero if you can link the bushings you are ordering. I was leaving mine in so I wouldn't destroy them.

Please post the link!!

Drilled, tapped and installed a 1/4-20 helicoil in the fuel rail mounting boss on the lower intake cleaned up the timing cover and removed the old front main seal. Realized that I installed my GT40 heads backwards, with the open thermactor ports facing the front... and I didn't work on anything today because it was too windy and I don't have a garage...

Passenger side header had a crack near the collector, so I wound up replacing my 13 y/o BBKs with a new set. Same exact kind BBK-35110, stainless steel ceramic coated. That passenger side header bolt is the biggest b**ch, about an hour into it I remembered I had a special hex tool for the back header bolt ..

Everything is buttoned up now I'll retorque after a couple of heat cycles. still sounds like I have a leak somewhere..not sure if it's where the ball seals at the collector or the exhaust pipe itself which is relatively new..it's always something..

Bought a pair of rancho RS9000's to go with my new front springs. If they work as good as they say they do I'll order two more for the back.

I've replaced the back with some leaves from an F250, which might explain why the back isn't squatting too badly in that picture. The 5.8 is destined for the bronco, hopefully this spring/summer.
I saw the "issues" you speak of, but still looks good and looks like it has lots of potential. Hate to hear it isn't going to survive forever, but what does.

Good luck.

I ordered these oil embedded brass bushings from McMaster Carr. (4 total)

https://www.mcmaster.com/oil-impregnated-bushings

Part #6659K32

Supposed to be an upgrade from the plastic factory style bushings. Weíll see.

As for the tire carrier tailgate striker bushing, am I supposed to cut it to put it around the tire carrier? Canít see any other way to install it really.

If this is the part you're talking about, the one I just bought from JBG is split so it fits over the tube just fine. The picture doesn't show the split, but it is. If you bought one from someplace else, then cut it.

Thatís the one. Got mine in the other day, but no slit. Easy enough to make one though.

That's weird, I was up at JBG on Monday, and spent my $9 on one, and it was split. Maybe they have multiple suppliers.

BTW, for those of you that are somewhat local to JBG (Jeff's Bronco Graveyard), they have changed their retail model, and now they want you to place (call in) the order 24 hours before picking it up. I didn't do that, but they took my money (I bought more than just the sleeve) anyway.

Youngdump, here is a spare tire cover "MADE IN THE USA" if you can believe that, it's held up really well fits good, and looks like the original!!
Got it off Amazon, for like $50.00

Don't feel bad. I did that on a '77 Mustang II with 302. It was embarrassing, to say the least, to hear exhaust coming from under the A/C compressor bracket....

Looked pretty good, so I dug a bit. Picked one up for my '95 through their eBay store.
Hope it's as good as it sounds. Thanks for the tip.
