Yeah, that happens when people use image hosting sites that go out of bidness, or that change their URL format without redirecting the old URLs. If it happens in a thread you need, AND you can't find another thread with relevant pics, post a reply IN THAT THREAD asking for fresh pics to be uploaded, or for the originals to be updated with current URLs. Don't start a new thread.
As a Contributor on Classic Broncos, I can tell you that the whole point of this site and other sites like this, is ADVOCACY and LEARNING. PRESUMPTION is a sign of poor leadership; if you feel that a post or question is too "stupid", perhaps you should save the confrontational response and subsequent aggravation, and let someone who has the patience field that. We tend to forget that we were once that newbie too at some point; and we also forget about that individual who, even though they shook their head, still, at the very least, pointed us in the right direction, WITHOUT making us feel inferior. In short: if you can't answer a question without being a dick, then don't answer.

For example, I am having problems with my ignition switch actuator on my 1996 Bronco. If I enter the words "ignition" "switch" "actuator" I get every post that contains one or more of those words. It is just a LOT easier to create a new post. That's why people do it.
So instead of just admonishing everyone to "use the search function" how about some better guidance on how to use the "adavanced search"?
Additionally, why is there a boxed automatically checked that says "also search in child forums" What the heck is a child forum?
I feel your pain!
I've never been able to get a good search within the forum using the built-in search function. As I've learned from other large IT companies (IBM), use our friend Google.com to search. Once you have Google open, enter what you are looking for. But after your search string, add the following " site:fullsizebronco.com" to filter the results to only resolve to this site. Using the Google Advanced Search adds many additional items that can be used to narrow down your results.
THEN USE GOOGLE TO SEARCH AS HAS BEEN EXPLAINED MULTIPLE TIMES IN THIS THREAD... YOU KNOW.... SINCE THE COMPANY IS FOUNDED ON IT'S POWERFUL ABILITY TO FIND STUFF AND YOU CAN EASILY GET RESULTS FOR EVERYTHING YOU NEED.
ALSO, CONSIDER GIVING YOUR CAPS LOCK BUTTON THE REST OF THE DAY OFF.
Since the last pic thread got "hard deleted", I figured we oughtta start a new thread.
Same rules: year, make, model and specs .
NO BS, NO QOUTES, PICS ONLY!!!

The day after I bought it...
My tranny took a dump and was rebuilt. it now seems to slip out of gear and hunt for the right gear intermittently. My mechanic suggested replacing the ECC. That didn’t improve things. I pulled the codes and the KOEO had no codes. The KOER test only had 311. We are out of ideas. I drove it...
So I started having some intermittent limp mode, which has been covered ad nausea here and I will be going through the usual suspects, but have you heard of it being temporarily fixed by.. uh.. smacking the top of your dash?
Background: My dash voltage gauge sticks and while I have a backup...
Decided to upgrade the Instrument cluster lights on my 86. Unlike 87 up trucks who have back lit gauges, all 86 and earlier trucks have front lit gauges. That is unlike the 87 up gauges which light through the instrument, illuminating the numbers and pointer from inside, the older trucks also...
I am finally getting round to fixing the air conditioning system on this 1990 bronco 5.0. The bronco had been parked for at least 10 years and there was very little pressure in the system. I converted the system over to R134 by replacing the compressor, condenser, dryer, clutch cycling switch...
