Probably Ford.. As many of these things as there out there hopefully
somebody'll start selling/stocking parts soon! (REAL soon I hope.. my
'85 B-II needs lots of little things..) Hmm.. ask the same glass place
about it?
Tim, Harry and all; you might try Dennis Carpenter Reproductions,
I know they do handle rubber for the Full Size Bronco's. They may
be coming out with the gaskets for the BII . I don't know you would have to
ask.

Just that static electricty is something to avoid.. keep touching ground
occasionally as you replace it. (Or if you do any other electronics/PC
work go to Radio Shack and pick up an anti-static wrist strap for $5.00
or so.) It may idle oddly for a few minutes and drive strangely for a
day or two as it relearns for your vehicles particular needs.

Well,

While 56K would be the optimum, the DMV has reduced this to 53K to avoid
traffic problems on the Highway. Under most real world conditions, you can
expect anywhere from 31.2 to 44K. Still pretty good ;-)

You think if I swapped out the EEC motherboard for my Hayes Accura I could
get 56K to the gallon?? Would be any easy swap, considering that they are
about the same size.

Do make sure you're on highway v.90 for best results.. if you try to
use highways k2 or flex 56 your performance will be worse.
