since this i chopped the roof and bought some more toys to screw with, now im back to getting this one to go again.
she needs the brake caliber pressed back together, needs new transmission lines, and i put in new battery terminals, starter cable and lots of stuff. and today i had to take 2 different starter and scraped them down till there was nothing left to take apart, and we put the good parts in to one starter. so i now have a good starter, fixed my neutral safety switch so i can turn her over with the key, and she turns over good but wont go. she will catch a bit, seems like shes not getting enough gas, but i pressed on the valve thing on the fuel rail and gas squirted up all over the hood and everywhere, so shes getting good gas, and shes getting good spark cause sometimes she catches pretty good.
i just cant figure out whats wrong. but my buddy can make anything with an engine run so he'll know what to do
and next weekend hopefully im picking up a d35 and 8.8, but i think im going to sell the d35 and install the 8.8 and buy a used early bronco d44 from broncograveyard and get it shipped here and rebuild it and throw some 4.56s and 33s in there and maybe an m50d cause this transmission is on its way out the back door.
and i might cut the roof off the parts b2 and secure back on this one, i regret doing the chop




and some fun before chopping her

If your'e trying to get them cleaned, look for someone who can get them set up on a flow tester to find out if any of them have gone bad. Usually that cleans it out and the internal filters get replaced at the same time.

just went outside, the excab shortbed is around 4-6" longer than the reg cab long bed. so if the wheel wells line up i think im gonna start pulling off the excab and puttin on the reg cab/long bed cause thats in good shape. so looks like instead of a floor swap im doing a cabswap

the axle is unbolted from the parts rig and the leafs are almost out, i got a couple bolts left and im just going to grind them out cause every bolt is a different size and a grinder is faster lol. so hopefully by the weekend ill have the leafs in the b2 and she will be ready to sell
