So I stashed it all, plus the one half of the driveshaft in an old van (hopefully to separate and get later).
Went back today with my new snap ring pliers and got that output shaft (and rear tailhousing, if you can call it that) from the bronco transfer case.

Hopefully there's nothing else bronco-specific that I should have grabbed. There's all sorts of threads out there to convert electric to manual, but none so far that detail converting an F150 to a Bronco transfer case.

Definitely. Switches and pigtails also. You never know when you need something electrical.

My thoughts exactly, its got a set of lower coil isolators i'll snag and some decent looking Warn 1/4 turn hubs that my 78 needs. Everything else can be spares

EDIT: Forgot to mention that whole frame/axle section only cost me 200$!

92BroncoXLT So recently Iíve been looking to swap from my factory 3:08ís to 3:55ís to help my old 300 turn my 33ís a little easier. So cruising around carpart.com I see a 94 F150 at a yard here in town (the kind that wonít let you wander around). As Iím scrolling through the pictures and notice the axle code on the door tag is ďH92Ē designating 3:55ís with front and rear LSDís. I immediately called them and asked if the axles were still under it and they said the rear is gone but we still have the front. I told them to pull it and Iíd be by today to pick it up.

I got there and figured out that when they pulled it, they didnít want to do much disassembly. So Iím now the proud owner of the front 1/4 of an F150 frame

I think it also has power locks, grab those, and the metal interior door handles, much better than the '87-and-up plastic ones.
As I said, @BroncMom needs those switch bezels! Lol

Johnny Blaze, as in Ghostrider? Or Method Man?

Theres a 92+ 4.9L/7.5L air inlet snorkel in one pic lol...

I know exactly what you mean. I have so many parts for projects that I really want to, but may never, happen. Then the problem becomes, they're so large that you can only hope to sell them locally due to shipping. I just hate the idea of desirable parts being lost forever.

My wife is constantly on me about getting rid of my 'crap' in the garage.

I can't even work on my Comet because I have a D60, a Sterling, and a D44 solid and some TTB beams sitting behind it. I'm gridlocked in my own garage.

BigBlue 94 @BroncMom needs those window switch bezels...



I had forgotten about potentially the BIGGEST find of my last trip. It was raining, so I had my phone packed away.

It was a 78-91 style of center console, with FACTORY DEEP cup holders. They were molded in, just like normal, but about 2" deep! It was in an 80s supercab pickup. I've got a tuffy so I didnt need it. And I cant be hoarding too many parts at the moment... nowhere to put em. I still have that D60 in the back of my van.

oshere Junkyard fine for anyone in Maryland Chesapeake Bay Area. My brother-in-law sent me these pictures see if there's anything I wanted and I thought I'd share. If anyone's interested I can ask him the exact location I think it's the junkyard in Harve De Grace Maryland. I'm hoping he can go back pull the seats look to see if there's a steering wheel and the emblems and that rear deflector but the front fenders look good for anyone needs front fenders.

Handy_andy_cv64 Oh, yeah, that ugly SOB. I call those RVs the "Speculum." You can get one of those air movers for the horns off Amazon, a complete install kit. If the hose is Y'd before their attachment to the horns, you can pull the Y off, and attach the long hose to each one, test them separately. Even with one's breath pressure, they are loud!

Even if its only 120v, its still a generator with a fuel supply that doesn't go bad over time. It will still run my freezer, just not my well pump.

Here's an operating manual for a similar if not exact model

I used one of those rubber cone tipped blow guns from my compressed air tank and shot a few bursts through those horns. Nice and loud, but I'm not sure if both or only one is working. Sounds like one of those emergency boat horns that comes with its own canned air supply.

67galax Well, after a few hits with the old impact, I got the yoke off the jeep transfer case. Since I also pulled a rear flange off a 95 bronco, I compared the two. The splines on the jeep front output are larger than the bronco rear, meaning I probably won't be able to use it on my bronco transfer case. I read somewhere earlier that you could use a bronco rear flange on the front to get a double cardan on the front.

Here are some pics. Quick Google search makes me think its a Jeep NP231
