Now that I have your attention, here's the deal:

I have an 86 F150 4x4 that needs an engine, I bought an 84 Bronco to be the donor vehicle. It has no d/s floor and a lot of frame rust (from MA) before I get flamed for taking a Bronco apart.

The problem is this, I cannot do it by myself (in a reasonable amount of time anyway) since my hands/wrists are smoked thanks to 4 carpal tunnel surgeries.

So if anyone would like to come to my house and lend a hand, I'll provide the beer, pizza, I'll even deep fry a turkey in return for your assistance. Afterwards we can chill in front of the big screen, watch some DVD's and drink some more beer.

I was thinking of the weekend of 11/22-23 or Thanksgiving weekend.

Any takers.

80Bronco the kids can play in the back yard, about an acre w/a swing set, I have two girls 5 and 8 lots of toys everyhting from Barbie to Monster trucks. Power wheels heep and quad.

Rep and Len thanks ,let me know.

Superjunk. I'm about two hours from Wayne. I am still interested but funds are tight, and I understand money talks and BS walks.I have air tools, the hoist, it would be outside my garage is not big enought to work in, maybe just the nose. It would be removing from the pick up and Bronco and reinstall in the pick up, I'm going to try to get the engine out of the Bronco before hand.

I can change the date but the later it gets, the colder it will be. If it doesn't get done before Christmas it will wait until the spring.

Thanks everyone :thumbup

If you don't mind coming up after work, great. If you're tired from working, that's cool too. Even if I don't get the engine in the pick up right now, my main concern is getting the Bronco "stripped" so it can be hauled away. If someone wants wants left, speak up. Leonard has dibs on the front axles.

Rep has to work until 1 and said he'll be up after that. Leonard said he's good to go, not sure what time. Another hand is always welcome. If you want to come up I'll PM you w/my address and home # you have my cell.

Thanks.
