canuckistan97 started cleaning the headlight assemblies as the rain wouldnt let up on us. Took a wire brush attachment to the angle grinder and blasted away most of the rust, going to finish them up with a dremel and quick coat of etching primer and black enamel paint

Desert Bronco Well, Not Today but Saturday.....
On my 1978 Ranger XLT Bronco, I replaced the lower steering shaft with a Borgensen unit, Wild Horses Saginaw PS kit and a Redhead steering box. Plus a in line filter and fluid. 7 hours later, all works awesome.

Nice score though. I'm jelly! @cobrajoe gives some solid advice and if you search around the site a little more, I'm sure we've got some good info from members past and present that will help even more.

cobrajoe Yes, definetly a two person job. First lube the rubber up (inside the groove) with WD-40, dish soap, or silicone, etc... then place a heavy but thin cord/string inside the gasket groove. Now place the bottom of window gasket into the window opening and have the other person push the window down onto the edge of the top from the outside. Have the other person hold and apply light pressure as you pull the window gasket into the opening using the cord from the inside. You may have to work the gasket with your fingers or a screwdriver if it folds. take your time, this is not a fast process.

Here's some generic pics to give you an idea:

That's what I did, and it was still a bit unwieldy.
Granted, it's the first time I did it, practice will make perfect.

AbandonedBronco Upgrade my garage to handle a Bronco!

Added eye bolts to the ceiling:



When you're drilling from underneath, and there's wires stapled to the beams, you measure 15 times, and drill once.







Now I can take it off by myself.

junkyardjeff Installed a good used distributor and replaced the upper radiator hose that was rubbing the tensioner pulley.

thequietman Found and fixed the leak with the help of a Radiator pressure tester (thanks Cobrajoe)

It was the factory clamp on this dayco hose assembly.....that was fun...not.
