After months of tinkering, the AC finally works! Man, it's SO nice to have cold air in the summer!
Fuel gauge also works, after replacing the brass float in the tank.
Plugged up cats replaced, along with O2 sensors. She'll pass smog now, if I ever need it to (not required here).
And I replaced the CV joint, which made a HUGE difference in the number of rattles. It's smooth & quiet again!
Thought I had 100% of everything working... until I went to set my cruise control, and it didn't. Grrrr!
It's always something, isn't it?

More poser shots. Can't help it; I just love the way this all came together! Other than the internal screens that make the cage, it's exactly as it was when it was in-service. (Ok, it's not nearly as muddy)

|MS88Bronc||I just noticed that your rear gate and quarter have the bolt holes for the swing-out spare carrier. I don't see a spare inside the cargo area either? If so, what do you do for a spare?|

Nice RNR trailer....
The bronco is cool, keep up the good build. Even if its just putting it back how you had it when it was in use. Killer story behind this.

Halfway into a 10-hour trip, disaster struck! We were sidelined (on a Saturday evening) with a plugged up cat. The only option was to haul it home.
Now I'm looking for exhaust options (keeping it as close to stock as possible) and hope to get it on the road again very soon.
All of you on the Facebook Bronco groups have already seen the posts. I was "spotted" multiple times on the drive. lol!

Lights, siren, radio & antenna were installed this past week. Progress!
Hidden USB charger (Shhhh!- It's not original)
All finished at the install shop!

Some lessons are learned the hard way.

You're talking the MAF air box lid right? With the single outlet? I know there was a bunch at the KC muncie u pull it back around August. They will pull parts for you and ship them.
P.S. that's why you spray the starter fluid right in the throttle body...

Just in case: Can you get a P/N off it and/or maybe a couple other pics (outlet/mounting/etc) so I can be looking for the right piece?

Help! WTB - airbox lid
This is what happens on a '96 when you fill the airbox with starting fluid & it backfires.
Why didn't it start in the first place? Stupid me - I was washing under the hood & got moisture in the distributor cap. Don't worry, all is well now... except for this:
I'm looking for a replacement. If anyone has a spare laying around or can find one for me, please let me know. I'm looking locally, but honestly there's not much left in the yards around here. Obviously, I'm trying to get one just like the original, not one of the earlier ones with no ridges or FORD lettering. If I have to replace it (and I do), I want to keep it as original as possible.
Keep an eye out for me, ok?

|1985 Bronco||Congrats on the FOTM win! Have you done the Saginaw swap yet? I did mine in April and it works a thousand times better than the old C2 pump!|

|Ranger0297||Man where in Mississippi did you score that from?|

|DogparkBronco||I love it, San Diego is about 45miles from me. I remember those Broncos well. Badass then and now. Great job.|
