Made it to the Garage today. My Son chipped Ice all day wile I tried to get stuff done.



Loaded the engine to take off to work.




Started to fabricate the snow plow / winch mount in the front! The uprights are plywood that I am using to make sure the brackets are parallel and square to each other and the frame. Not much progress but we are moving forward.

Engine is cleaned ready for teardown! Rather than working on it at lunch time I went and looked at a parts unit. Found a much cleaner then mine 1986 Bronco 302 FI with OD. All the parts look to be in good shape, at least the stuff that I will need to finish up mine. The tub looks to be in great condition compared to mine but the Bronco doesn't have a title. it will work for Parts! Doors, Fenders, Hood, Inner fenders, Wire Harnesses, Dash, Tailgate, all look good. I'll post up pictures when I go get it!

1 hour into it so far, engine is a rebuild from someone, I have the serial number from the rebuilder and I am going to do some research to find who rebuilt it. It is covered in the melt tabs that rebuilders always use to prove the engine has been overheated, They have all been melted out..... Going to Turn the frame over tonight and do some more welding!

The PO had a great idea for the return spring bracket!









Another hour into the engine today at lunch, pulled the rocker covers and found clean engine underneath, this makes me happy!

The cylinder walls are worn, and it has ridges. I will be sending it to the machine shop next week! Heads go out Monday.

This is the game changer....., I have came up with a new plan. Finish my frame and set this body on it, after the interior has been removed and taken care of like I had planned to do with patches. Then with all the left overs I plan to build a mean woods buggy.

Where was that? Looks clean and straight.

Might be a Cummins in the truck next to it.

That chassis looks the business Mongo. Nice job cleaning it up buddy. How you gonna mount front radiator support around the winch? Cut and weld round winch then new mount points on the frame? Really like the idea of setting the winch back in snug. I have another truck am looking at doing same thing to so keen to see how you do it so I can burgle some ideas .

Oh and that red truck looks nice. If you wanna pop that rear tailgate gate chrome panel off, pop it in an envelope and chuck it in the post to Upper Hutt New Zealand I'll buy you a beer next time I see you .

Ha ha, you know I was walking through my local junk yard a couple months back and I saw a Bronco about your year had just came in. I was thinking about you guys down under and figured I get some parts. Looked inside and it was gutted. No seats, no headliner, no steering wheel, not even the dash. I though, I guess I won't tell them about this. But I didn't even look at the gate. It was down. Think the piece would fit in carry on? I still saving for my trip down there. How much money is in a 5 gallon jug full of coins? (Lots of silver)

Sorry Mongo, don't mind my babbling.

Spent another weekend hacking away at the frame, almost ready for paint! We test fit the winch and the rad support! Feels good to see how it all fits together!

Is that winch complete? Most of the winches I see have a hump in the middle. I would like one that is just like that.

If I'm not mistaken, that's a "Badlands" 12,000 lb., available at any local Harbor Freight for a fraction of the brand name units.

Looking real good
