I'd brag a little about battery life but I probably don't drive as much as most and I don't wanna jinx myself.
Here's hoping that your buddy knows all this....but just letting you know.Dropped it off at my buddies to start fixing some mechanical items:
1) valve cover gaskets (sand blast and paint also)
2) sand blast, paint and polish intake plenum
3) install E150 power steering pump
4) passenger side exhaust manifold gasket
5) fumoto oil drain
6) tie rod ends
8) fuel sending unit and install cut out in rear floor pan
Fingers crossed, this holds her over for now!!

Thanks for the heads up. He informed me of these items today and actually told me the manifold was cracked and they didn’t have gaskets. Shows how much I know! Lol. Yeah they plenum and valve covers will be blasted OFF the truck and cleaned and painted. I’ll make sure I mention taping the ports off though. Thanks again for the tips!Here's hoping that your buddy knows all this....but just letting you know.
1. Sand blasting baffled valve covers without masking everything off with duct tape is a crap shoot. Even then - sand makes its way everywhere. I've personally seen it more than once.
2. Wash the crap out of it before priming / painting and bolting on your engine. Blasting media clings everywhere, especially inside the plenum / intake where the runners are rough cast aluminum.
4. OEM exhaust manifolds don't have gasket from the factory. From experience I can tell you - odds are you have either a cracked exhaust manifold (common), a messed up gasket at the junction where the manifold bolts to the y-pipe - or you have a leak in the EGR / AIR system that will sound just like an exhaust leak.
They have tapped into your internet and are getting all there Bronco knowledge from you!! How goes the battle?Yo Pepe',
Thanks! However, our little bastards don't ask before entering.😎
I opened the hood this morning and found more leaves on driver side rocker cover. What bother me was that they partially removed the spiral wrap from the coil. They've been studying Automotive Basic Electricity⚠
We just placed a trap outside and will soon begin a reverse illegal immigrant move.
I thought the same thing so I removed and cleaned all the positive and negative connections. I’m wondering if the relay is damaged or something. I haven’t tried to run with hi beams to test the other relay and piss off some people lol.Maybe just a bad ground somewhere?
