1983 Ford Bronco
Owner: michael collins 
From: North Highlands, CA, U.S.A.        (Other registries in CA)
Year, Make, & Model: 1983 Ford Bronco        (Other Ford Broncos)
Clubs: FullSizeBronco.com        (Other vehicles in this club)
Nickname: Jezebel
Mileage: 81000
Engine: I6-1992 EFI motor swap (currently under way) 3G swap
Drivetrain: It is mostly stock with a 8" lift. I replace the front axle pivet mount bracket and all the rubber bushings to poly. I regeared the 8.8 with 4:56 and an Auburn differential. I complete a rear shackle flip (sky products) and a belltech drop bracket to add more lift. I replaced the stock rubber body mounts for poly and added a 3" body lift. Added 40X17 supper mudder gumbo tires on 15"X12" wagon wheels
Notes: The cam shaft went flat and started to chatter real bad. i got a 1992 F150 and swapping the motor and goodies over to Jezebel. Updates listed below

this is the "Clicking" component. it is the "Max" or recycle door motor. this is real hard to get to, it is the center of the heaterbox and the firewall.

Here is the fan temp power controler. I got it new from Autozone $24. the ignition on wire goes to this then then from this to the relay. The relay has a battery connection on one side and the fan connection on the other.
