You'll have to find the model number to be sure, but it might be only 120v. Seems to be a 3000w generator. Not sure if you could convert to 220/240v. Appears to be a number of YouTube videos about em.
Even if its only 120v, its still a generator with a fuel supply that doesn't go bad over time. It will still run my freezer, just not my well pump.

Oh, yeah, that ugly SOB. I call those RVs the "Speculum." You can get one of those air movers for the horns off Amazon, a complete install kit. If the hose is Y'd before their attachment to the horns, you can pull the Y off, and attach the long hose to each one, test them separately. Even with one's breath pressure, they are loud!

Junkyard fine for anyone in Maryland Chesapeake Bay Area. My brother-in-law sent me these pictures see if there's anything I wanted and I thought I'd share. If anyone's interested I can ask him the exact location I think it's the junkyard in Harve De Grace Maryland. I'm hoping he can go back pull the seats look to see if there's a steering wheel and the emblems and that rear deflector but the front fenders look good for anyone needs front fenders.

@BroncMom needs those window switch bezels...



I had forgotten about potentially the BIGGEST find of my last trip. It was raining, so I had my phone packed away.

It was a 78-91 style of center console, with FACTORY DEEP cup holders. They were molded in, just like normal, but about 2" deep! It was in an 80s supercab pickup. I've got a tuffy so I didnt need it. And I cant be hoarding too many parts at the moment... nowhere to put em. I still have that D60 in the back of my van.

I know exactly what you mean. I have so many parts for projects that I really want to, but may never, happen. Then the problem becomes, they're so large that you can only hope to sell them locally due to shipping. I just hate the idea of desirable parts being lost forever.

My wife is constantly on me about getting rid of my 'crap' in the garage.

I can't even work on my Comet because I have a D60, a Sterling, and a D44 solid and some TTB beams sitting behind it. I'm gridlocked in my own garage.

Who the Heck was driving that Bronco? Johnny Blaze?

I think it also has power locks, grab those, and the metal interior door handles, much better than the '87-and-up plastic ones.

So recently I’ve been looking to swap from my factory 3:08’s to 3:55’s to help my old 300 turn my 33’s a little easier. So cruising around carpart.com I see a 94 F150 at a yard here in town (the kind that won’t let you wander around). As I’m scrolling through the pictures and notice the axle code on the door tag is “H92” designating 3:55’s with front and rear LSD’s. I immediately called them and asked if the axles were still under it and they said the rear is gone but we still have the front. I told them to pull it and I’d be by today to pick it up.

I got there and figured out that when they pulled it, they didn’t want to do much disassembly. So I’m now the proud owner of the front 1/4 of an F150 frame :toothless

I originally wanted to hold out and find a set of 4.10's, but having the torque of the 300 and being on pavement 90% of the time means 3.55's will do just fine. Now I just need to grab a rear axle to match and i'll be set (thankfully a truck with an H9 axle code is pretty common) :thumbup

EDIT: Forgot to mention that whole frame/axle section only cost me 200$!

that has a lot of extra usable parts that you could sell or hoard, too.

My thoughts exactly, its got a set of lower coil isolators i'll snag and some decent looking Warn 1/4 turn hubs that my 78 needs. Everything else can be spares

On my tour yesterday, I saw a bronco transmission/transfer case in the engine pile. I figured I'd get the flange output in case I ever wanted to convert the F150 into a Bronco one. I also pulled the case apart to get the entire output shaft that goes with it, but didn't have any snap ring pliers to get it off. So I stashed it all, plus the one half of the driveshaft in an old van (hopefully to separate and get later).
Went back today with my new snap ring pliers and got that output shaft (and rear tailhousing, if you can call it that) from the bronco transfer case.

Hopefully there's nothing else bronco-specific that I should have grabbed. There's all sorts of threads out there to convert electric to manual, but none so far that detail converting an F150 to a Bronco transfer case.

Couldn't even get the first bolt loose on the 460 sag bracket... so I said eff it

I did manage to find this York 210 on an 81 f150 with a SBF. So I snagged the brackets too.



Then the elusive center console with DEEP cupholders. Or at least deeper than normal! Found in a bullnose supercab.





I also managed to grab a pic of the first gen 4.9L/7.5L air box snorkel.



Then I stumbled onto an owners manual and accessory brochure for 1985 pickups. In the brochure was an accessory I've never heard of: rear auxiliary air conditioning for Broncos. It was a dealer add on, and looked much the same as the ones in the rears of econolines. They were mounted in the driver's side behind the wheel well, making nice use of that space.

I don't even begin to understand the reasoning of making that optional / model specific! Why would a Bronco need shallow cupholders and a truck need deeper ones? And if they have the mold for the deeper ones, why make one with shallow ones? Boggles my mind.

Yeah no clue either. Why bother to have two molds when one is clearly better than the other. The only thing wrong with it is its missing the bar that the lid latches to. But that's an easy fix.

Is the shallow vs deep cupholder console year-specific, maybe? Like, the improved deep one came later and someone swapped a better one into their old Bullnose? Or, Ford logic...the better one came earlier and they changed for no good reason, then stuck with it because bean counting?

That must be why they're so rare on the used market!

I always carry a breaker bar in my backpack. Other than cracking my 3/8" to 1/2" adapter once (using impact sockets for needed depth), I've yet to meet a bolt that it can't break loose or just plain break. Either way, whatever it's holding down is coming out!
