whats up everyone? I just bought my first ford, an 82 fullsize Bronco. Its got a 302, auto-no OD, and thats about all i know. Im trying to get it ready for a smog test, but im missing a lot of parts- purge valve, bowl vent solenoid, check valves and vacuum delays ect.:banghead Im a volkswagon Audi tech and Ive been wrenching on cars since I was in the 7th grade so I think ill do ok. I need to figure out what some of the acronyms on the vacuum diagram stand for and go to the wrecking yard though.

My first rig was a 2wd 71 chevy fleetside, then a 98 chevy 4x4 sierra, with various small cars in-between( fiero, and now a diesel rabbit.

The Bronco is gonna get 6 inches of lift and 35" tires as soon as I can afford it, after its smogged and licensed.:rockon

Welcome and good luck! If there is a different way to do something, Ford will chose the different way. Still fun though. Maybe you can bring some trick VW/Audi ideas and parts to the Bronco Forum! Chevy rears work under Broncos! (sorry Fordnatics)

Drove chevy,gmc and drank budwieser for yrs.,now its ford and coors light

my first truck was a '56 GMC witha 4speed turbohydramatic tranny,it banged the gears and was very cool ride,then a '61 gmc 4x4 3/4 ton,i took it down to the frame put in a '57 283 11 1/2 :1 corvette engine,put in mid'80's 1 ton running gear except the tranny,added power steering and lifted 10 inches,this was back in 1980,i still have that one,then it was a 72 blazer ,got it at a dea auction,it had a lot of interesting things.then I bought my first ford,since i have 5 fords and have 2 still.
I really like the Fords but I will never sell the 61 GMC it is a bad machine.Locally known as Da Beast.My '90 Bronco xlt is called Ten Inches for some reason.
Thanks for all the warm welcomes
