History
Grabbed this Bronco up REALLY quick because there was a lot of value to this automobile. Drove it about 20 minutes home with virtually no brakes (took about 10 seconds to slow down to a dead stop from 5 MPH). Exhaust were shorties with 2 1/4" pipe ran to a single Flowmaster and back out to dual exhaust (U-Bolts were welded to the frame of the Bronco). When I finally had a weekend to myself, cut off the muffler, ran it with only cats, then had my fun with open headers. After that, it was down to the big business. Broke down the engine to the bare block and took the block to get bored 30 over. Tranny was sent off to get redone and picked it up about a week and a 1/2 later. Then got the block back, and new rods, pistons, all that jive. Then came the pretty part. Chrome Ford Racing valve covers and air breather and water neck. Electrical was redone as well (really fun). Engine and Transmission were all mated, fluids, spark plug gaps, firing order (did traditional 302 firing order at 1st, then remembered it was 302 HIGH OUTPUT firing order). Fired it up, and the rest is history. It's a daily driver and I've enjoyed every mile I have put on that Bronco thus far. It hasn't skipped a beat yet since it's been rebuilt.
