If I remember correctly, you are supposed to pull the pin out in the front of the prop. valve when you bleed. I used a suction bleeder when I did my other truck and it worked great. Other than that, not sure why you would be getting fluid back.

I try that next time around but I still havent fixed it. Working on this truck has been alot slower that I would like, now that work is done school has started but I'm coming back as much as I can to work on the truck. This weekend I decided the rear springs need new bushings since all the other bushing have been replaced with Energy Suspension bushings. So I got the leaf springs out which I though was going to be the hard part but I was wrong. Does anyone have any creative or good ways to get the old bushings out of the leaf springs?

Also since I have to order the bushings most likely from Bronco graveyard I was going to get the floor boards and cab corners so I could take the truck to the body shop and get those out of the way. But I got to thinking is there a better place to get patch panels like this from? I've heard stuff from LMC is pretty thin but I haven't heard anything about Bronco Graveyard.

They do come pretty close, they come close to alot of things actually, Also when I had exhaust put on it they had to make a pretty sharp bend to get the driver side pipe to the passenger side so they could run them down for duals.

Thanks for your help. It seems all chassis headers for these trucks have some sort of fitment trouble. 3/4 length ones look like they give the most room, but their only shorties. If that even matters much for a mild 460.
