Like that, getting one.

Once I get brake lights, I'm going to finally try driving it on the road!!!


Truckís looking great! I hope you plan to hang the exhaust tail pipes better before you take it for a spin. Unless Iím missing something, it looks like theyíre just hanging off the collectors.

Put my new master cylinder on (yesterday) and the new rear brake hose on today and bled the rear brake lines. I'll bleed the fronts in the morning and see how it goes, er, I mean stops

Congrats! Now buy a code reader and learn how to use it. Could save you a ton of cash paying for unneeded repairs that fail smog again!

So my Sniper EFI is running strong. Original 1978 400 with 90k on it has never run better. Lots of money, lots of time, lots doubts, lots of ++++. A few more tweak's but worth it it all.

Thank you! I have an OBD II reader will the 1 to 2 adaptor work or should I buy a 1 reader?

Finally got both cargo panels and the spare tire rack out of my 82... Got the cargo panels washed and wet sanded ready to be painted... Got the spare tire rack sanded washed and painted the same color charcoal grey as the rear seat locking hardware
The color difference with the before being lighter, I took those pix early afternoon and the darker after pix were taken close to sunset.

Also finished painting the cargo area light but not sure I like it... Will have to wait and see how it looks once the panels are done.

Nice work Bmom! The light will be just fine. I never look at mine! Are you going with carpet? When I got my 93, it had new carpet everywhere. I lifted a section in back and there was nothing underneath it! Carpet to metal! The whole interior came out and I put down peel and stick duct insulation. That made a world of difference in the amount of noise in the cab! Just a thought...

There is carpet back there now @bmad01 not the original tho and nothing under it. I keep going back n forth with only doing carpet (dark charcoal grey) in just the passenger area and doing lizard skin in the cargo area. Just the sound proof variety tho, i don't think i need insulating and sound proofing... Then I think about carpeting the cargo area too to make it more dog friendly. If i do carpet i don't think I'll do the lizard skin, i think I'll just do a peel n stick pad. I know i want to pull the cargo area carpet sooner then later because where the one leg (closest to the tailgate) of the spare tire holder was rusted to the carpet pretty badly and 1. I don't want to put my newly painted tire holder on rusty carpet and 2. I wanna see if there's any floor damage before we get into winter in Northwest PA. I'm not too worried about the noise especially since hubby's installing the 100 watt amp big box speaker in the cargo area, but it would be nice to hear the radio over the exhaust system for a change... But man... Do i love to hear her rumble

Hot damn... that's not a bad deal at all. How much did all the paint cost to get the wine card? I might be able to swing some new paint with the wife if that deals still good

If that ainít the truth - everything I buy for the Bronco ends up costing me twice as much since I gotta get the wife something as well! Lol

Spent the morning searching around and ordering a few last parts for Dad's 400 pull & repair. I was surprised to find JBG had the set of OEM style exhaust manifolds for the 400. Wish they had a little better description in their stuff though. No idea if they're DORMAN or who/what. Oh well... other than expensive shipping, I've been pretty happy with most purchases through them.

Spent another hour+ searching through YouTube and watching multiple vids to figure out how to deal with the TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) in the lil' ladies 2015 F150. I got a real good line on a full set of Fuel TPS rims w/studded snow tires for $800, through a friends work buddy. Not bad for 4x 275/60R20's. Not a big fan of 20" wheels but the deals right and they'll work without messing up her extended warranty. She's not off-roading that rig so the ride cushion lost w/20" wheels shouldn't matter. Black wheels and Cooper M&S Tires with 1 city season on 'em. Her last set of studded Cooper M&S AT's lasted far longer than I ever would have expected on her Yota. Was so glad to figure out that I'll be able to deal with the summer/winter wheel/tire swap myself, rather than all the hassle and expense we go through to pay a tire store do it 2x a year.

Yesterday I had the oil changed for a 3rd time on the '95's fresh 351W. Damn quicky lube robbers charged me $85, saying anything over 5 qts. isn't included and nearly $8 for the last quart. Oh well. It's been right about 1 year, just over 7k miles and 3 documented oil changes. The only reason I was paying was for possible warranty issues and after 1 yr./7k mi. of running, I'll handle it myself from here out. I'm such a cheap bastard.

While I hesitate to curse myself bragging... I'm really happy with that engine reman some of ya'll helped me through. My Bronco's been running like a top since I installed the raman'd 351W and cut out the CATs. So nice to just jump in and go without being overly concerned. I have to admit though, I'm also driving a lot less since the lil' lady got her '15 F150. With the mileage that 2.7L EB/TT gets, it's just stupid for me to insist on driving us to town in the FSB for all the regular "run arounds". It is weird as hell though... being chauffeur'd around by her when I'm used to being the driver.

Thanks and absolutely! It's getting a complete exhaust system, once the brake lights are done.

This setup was just so it wouldn't be open headers and would allow me to run the O2 sensor for the EFI.

So far, it's just been driven around the driveway, so no speed and no bumps.

Just keep your 'eyes on the prize:' the mileage is stacking on the F150 under warranty, and not stacking on the Bronco. It's good to hear that the Windsor is doing its thing and *knock on wood, as I rap my knuckles on my noggin* will give you many years of pleasurable drivability.

Changed out my temp sensor and put in a Motorcraft, also while I had the coolant out of the radiator I put in my Explorer heater core diverter valve.

Hopefully this will help the A/C temp drop a degree or two.
