Great write up man.. :thumbup
well, if i understand you correctly, you were not having any problems until after you replaced the vacuum line with the rubber hose. so my guess would be that it is making a difference. the vacuum lines must have very tights connections and no leaks in order the deliver the fuel correctly. leaks in the vacuum lines will cause you to run rich and idle roughly. i'd suggest taking out the rubber hose and putting in a new vacuum line.Nice write up! My Bronco is having the same symptoms. I broke the vaccum line going from the regulator to the upper intake. I replaced the hose with a rubber one...will that make a difference? The problem occurred after I broek and replaced that line. The regulator is not that old...maybe 1 1/2 years.
1) Its a Ford thingJKossarides said:Thinking about changing my FPR as a matter of mantainence, I've had the 1986 FSB for 2 years now and don't know how old it is. It has the oem Ford oval on it & looks almost new and clean but it probably wouldn't hurt to replace it. It's right there on the top and doesn't look to hard to do.
What's with the screws upside down?
Can I use the schrader valve to release pressure to do this?
Are the screws phillips or allen?

I agree.jermil01 said:I don't believe a carbed Bronco has an FPR like an EFI one does.
Yeah I did the same thing the first time with the Schroeder valve and it worked just fine. If I recall, you just push on that button on the inertia switch and it should relieve the pressure. Once relieved you should be able to do any fuel-related work. Just crank it up to build pressure again!JKossarides said:Xris: Hey 86 Buddy what's happening! My inertia switch is under the dash/radio too.
I recently changed my fuel filter just using the Schroeder valve and that worked ok, but you say use the inertia, pop it up first, crank a few times then pop it back down when finished with FPR?
