Unfortunately, very short after our baja trip, my brother had an accident in the red bronco:





Fortunately, he walked away, although a little bruise, no major issues. A semi ran a red light, and he could not stop soon enough....... so shortly after the accident, we picked up another bronco, this time black, so we could have twins. Within a month, built it up to similar specs, coilovers, Bilstein 9100s all around, Cut and Turn Beams, etc etc etc which is why there are now twins:

King of the hammers 2011, we were out in the twins:




He is happy:

Was not suppose to rain last today. but oh well. IT lead to a great muddy day.

Was up until 1am after noticing a inner wheel bearing was shattered. There was nothing left. LITERATELY!!! But got it done in time and decided to go

Meet a couple of the guys before we went up. Got there around 10:15 unloaded the trailer and 100 ft in the drive shaft brakes

Every stopped to get it fixed, the CV lower busted. Good thing i brought a spare, it looks like the joint was 30 years old and took a army to get the caps off.

We got it after a hour and hit the mud, IT WAS DEEP.. I got out to get pulled out and sunk to my knees ( im 6'4) and couldnt get out with all my effort. I had to get a tow rope thrown to me..

Blah, ill add more later.
Here is what i have.. ALOT MORE to come when the guys upload.

DONT FORGET TO VOTE FOTY FOR BIGREDKACY

Katie getting dirty helping with the drive shaft

Electronic Fuel Injection on an M-Block engine????

When I bought the '78 I knew I wanted to inject it. Just how to do so I was not sure. How do you add EFI to an engine that never came from the factory with fuel injection? Using the search function (!) I found out there were basically 4 ways to do it:

1. Buy a new or used aftermarket thottle body injection (TBI) system like a Holley Pro-Jection system. (Basically chevy technology)

2. Swap in a different engine family that did have Ford factory injection (5.0 or 5.8 windsor, 460 with efi, or one of the newer Mod motors - 4.6, 5.4 or V10)

3. Use some Price Motorsports adapters to adapt a 5.8 Windsor lower manifold to the 351M/400 block and heads and use a Mustang MAF set up.

4. Adapt an aftermarket 4bbl aluminum manifold to take injectors and then use the Mustang MAF set up.

I am sure there are other ways or parts combinations that will get you there, but these are the ones I considered. I did not want to go the TBI route and quickly dismissed that option although it would probably be the easiest way to go. I'd love to swap in a V10 Mod motor which I think would be a great engine for a 78-79 Bronco, but at this time it's probably the hardest way and it would obviously have a snowball effect of changing out the tranny and TC too - and probably more technical issues than I wanted to tackle at the time!

So initially I was going down the PMS adapter path and even purchased the lower and upper Windsor manifolds. Bt jopes' efi build convinced me to basically do what he did - use an Edelbrock Streetmaster single-plane manifold as the basis for the efi upgrade. Piston spacing on the 351M/400 is the same as a Windsor so fuel rails from a Mustang or F150/Bronco 5.0 or 5.8 are an exact match. This is where Bill (bmc69) comes in! He has the equipment and the set up to drill and install injector bungs on a 4bbl manifold. And he did an awesome job including making the brackets to hold the rails in place.



Deciding to use the modified Streetmaster was only the first step. Although I followed jopes lead - not sure if anyone else has done this to completion?? - I did do a lot of things differently. I did use the same (or similar one?)TB and elbow. Mine is off a 96 Crown Vic 4.6. But it needed to be adapted to the 4bbl manifold. I made a 1/2 inch phenolic spacer to fit on top of a 1 inch aluminum spacer. I cut it the outside shape of the aluminum adapter and inside bore of the TB elbow.

EFI harness install . . .

EFI has been by far the most challenging upgrade I have done - and the mechanical install shown above was the easy part! It took a while and a lot of internet research to figure out the harness. Nobody makes a harness for this application so I had to modify a Mustang harness to fit the M-Bloke set up. Besides I really wanted to do it myself so that I fully understood the harness and could troubleshoot it later on if needed.

Thanks Paulo, all worthy Bronco's here. Hope Henri shows us a little more.

Salt and I did a little wheeling a couple of weeks ago after a wrenching day.
