Nickname: Frank's '75 Bronco FOR SALE
Engine: '88 F-150 5.0L totally stock, except Crown Vic intake to make it fit under the hood. The mechanic who did Phase 2 deleted the smog pump for some reason, and went to a LOT of trouble to mount an aftermarket A/C compressor in place of the stock one.
Drivetrain: Rebuilt '88 F-150 AOD; Advance Adapter; original Dana 20; rebuilt D44 front with new gears & GM disk conversion; rebuilt Ford 9" with 4.11s.
Notes: Bought ragged, and rebuilt from the frame up beginning in October '99. The whole wiring harness is from the '88 F-150, so it has cruise, PW/PL/RKE, rear defrost, the '88 in-tank & frame rail fuel pumps, dual dome lamps, & interval wipers. It also uses the '88 tilt column, '86 EB Bronco seats on custom bases, & '86 tan shoulder belts. The whole inside was Rhino-lined in Harvest Gold, the same as the 2000 EB Expedition tan on the outside of the camper, the rocker panels, and the fender flares. The rest of the body is 2000 EB Ex Estate Green, except the tan sections of the grille & t/g. The frame is Herculined. All the weatherstrips were replaced with new, and late-model breakaway bubble-back mirrors were added. It also has an auto-dimming compass thermometer rear-view mirror, rechargeable MagLite, fold/tumble rear seat, underhood reel light, backup camera, DynaMat Xtreme covering all the Rhino inside, carpet, headliner, custom door& bedwall panels, and more every day. This is Frank's only vehicle, so he commutes, carpools, hunts & trains dogs, travels, & tows his boat with it.
The truck is now for sale, but a trade for a '94-up F250/350 gasoline w/8' bed would be considered. Search Memphis CraigsList for more info.

It shouldn't take long to make this t-case match the rest of the truck.

I don't think I ever noted or documented it from the first build, but this shows the belt size: 6-ribs, 228.5".

I had forgotten that the original water pump had broken through the timing cover during that truck's wreck, and that we had it welded up during the initial build, including the timing set that just came off today.

The set that just came off was a standard chain; this double-roller should be a minor upgrade.

As cramped as it looks, it was a very quick & easy job to get the front of the engine stripped off, and put back on later.

This is a common problem in all pre-'92 EFI F-series & Broncos. These Ford-style relays (BROWN socket = EEC power; GREEN socket = fuel pump)are notorious for causing intermittent failures in the EEC & fuel pumps. Yesterday, this EEC PWR relay decid...

Being careful to connect the wires to the proper terminals (using the list below), securely connect the old wires to the terminals of the new sockets. Try to keep the wires the same length so there's not a huge ratnest.

Working on ONE relay at a time, remove the terminals from the stock connector & discard it. I collected these Bosch-style sockets in junkyards, but they're available at most parts stores, from Ford, or several online suppliers like RJMInjectionTech....

Now the truck will be MUCH more reliable, and can use the cheaper, heavier-duty, more common ISO relays that are easier to swap. Tape up the harness & secure the relays to a safe mounting location. Not all relays have mounting tabs like these, but ...

That's it until Frank can find enough spare cash to build a dash, bumpers, door panels, and a few other odds & ends.

The Rhino-lining goes from the floor to the ceiling, and up the firewall & tailgate. We found a great little seat that will fold flat like a '78-96 Bronco's, but we have to build the base.

It started as a rustbucket with nice wheels, and ended up as a 2000 Eddie Bauer Bronco.

The shoulder belts look & work great, and the EB captain's chairs with armrests add to the EB theme.
