Oh, and I thought I’d post this for BigBlue so he knows what thick woods in Maine look like (although those thorns he has are nasty looking!)
Aaaaaaggggghhhhhh yes, I remember those Maine Cedar swamps and Alders "down the bog" very well. Wasn't bad when I was just a "young fella" but as I got older, I hated trying to drag a deer out of 'dem 'der woods.

So I forgot we plugged the smog hole in exhaust system when we stripped it back to the 70’s guess it vibrated enough to pop out the hole.

Well I remembered seeing one in the bottom drawer of my tool box so this tome I drilled a hole in it and if I can remember where I put my bailing wire I’ll wire it so it can’t spin... it’s just cranked in hard right now.

Finished up the gilmer belt setup 'cuz the 3G alternator belt wouldn't stop squealing on startup. Had to reposition the PS bracket with some tweaking. Still need to hit Tractor Supply for a smaller belt later. You can see this belt has the full adjustment and still not quite enough.

Looks almost like the timing belt we did on a Yota, It definitely won’t slip with the teeth it has now, just don’t lean in with a tie on! I’ll bet it’s got a lot more bite now. (y) Looks good!

That looks great! Maybe I should do that with my 70 amp. Where'd you get that?
kmjperformance on Ebay, shipped quick too. Had to reposition the alt as well, but I needed to anyway as the back of it was rubbing the heater hose pipe. She charges right up to 14v and not a peep out of it.

Got my rig undercoated with RustAvert, got the rear window upper run gasket replaced, and ordered the carpet for my cargo area from stock interiors ($30 off thanks to their black Friday sale ?).

Finally stopped the P/S leak caused by last shop that swapped out the steering gear and tried to over tighten connections.. I reworked with a tiny bit of red sealer in the threads and heat cured them overnight.. Success! Now for the Pan Gasket front Leak grrrr

Lets get a sticky!!!

It's easy, tell us anything you've done to your Bronco today. It could be as simple as staring at it, or as complicated as finishing a SAS, doesn't matter


I washed mine today, and tried to fix my loose passenger side mirror
Took it for a spin in the first snow fall of the year and ducked taped my ash tray closed. Every stop at a light it slides right out.
