Bronco owner once again

Just joined , and looking forward to to all your great insights, tech, and just good old fun. I’m once again a proud owner of a 1978 400M auto. It’s 2tone white and brown complete factory except valve cover gaskets and an unfortunate previous one owner who added a pop up sunroof in the 80’s😡
