Completed my A/C system rebuild a few minutes ago. The compressor failed and I got a new one and new components to go with it.

Pulled a vacuum on it last night and let it set over night. I checked it this morning and the vacuum held.

Just got done charging it up with the recommended oil and refrigerant charge. Let it run in the carport for about 30 mins and it never skipped a beat.

Gonna go out tonight and test run it on the road and see what it does.

I am thinking it is all good at this point and I am a happy camper!

Pulled the leaking driver side valve cover on wifeys 85. Cleaned and painted and put on a new felpro rubber steel core.



Iíll do the other side when I feel like removing the top half of the motor - geez

Also gave them both a thorough hosing down underneath to fight the winter salt. Next weekend I spray em both down with fluidfilm.

Iíve also been doing a bunch of research on raptor liner. I think Iím going to remove all my XLT moulding, weld the holes, and raptor it gun metal grey or tan like the 85. Thatíll keep me out of trouble for a bit.

Cheers

Just got back from the pick n pull, Found a tan dash in a 90' F-250 that has no cracks. Gonna go back next week and pull it. But I did score a gt40 lower and saw a 96' v8 Explorer with an untouched motor.

Did a pre-load for the trip to Moab to make sure everything I'm taking will fit ok without being over filled. I think it's ready.

When I picked up Ol' Faithful from the shop, the owner mentioned the vent hose on the TTB was broken, so I put a new piece of 12mm polyurethane tubing on it and ran it up into the motor bay. Need to do the rear too.

I didn't get anything but the lower and it was mostly loose. I guess someone needed the upper. The 96' I saw had not been touched. I'll get the upper and the heads if no one else has.

Thanks biggum! Itís been a blast this far.

My tire cover came in today, but the piping was tan instead of black :/ I originally ordered from their website and it is a $10 option. I emailed sparecover and am waiting for a response. It is a very nice quality cover and fits great (didnít notice piping until I installed it).

I ordered a cover, last night. Had been wondering where I might find one so thanks, YD.

I've never seen a Bronco that I didn't like.

Nice looking cover you've got there!
