Thanks Zip that means a lot whats even funnier is that my dad and mom ordered it later the day that I was born in the way home which was April 24 so it has a really big place in my hart. Eventhough it seems the truck gets me in a lot of trouble lol.

It wouldn't be the same if it was trouble free. Seems I'm always under something with mine.

Oy. Ordered 4/24/95? When you put it THAT way, I feel damned old. That's when I was planning my Senior Ditch Day & looking forward to graduation. Hell, my truck was built about 75 days after I was born -- but it was built in November of '77.

And these trucks are good at getting you into trouble. Fits the name... they didn't call it the Shetland or the Unicorn. It's a BRONCO and it's a little on the untamed side!

Yeah, I know that was cheesy. So what?

Thanks ford all the comments I really appreciate it it really dose mean a lot. I just graduated on may 21 and he signed the pink slip in front of everybody right before the graduation. so I see how it could make you seem old lol and no that was not corney. it was actualy kina clever. I would like to try and find a 1978 or 1979 bronco for my dad he really likes those years. My mom would also like to find a 1966-1977 bronco because she thinks their " small and cute" lol.

I saw an Early Bronco at the dog park last night. It was neither small nor cute. Great restoration with about 6" of lift and 33s.

Compression Test Results. Thoughts?

Head gasket leak, left bank?

Replaced ancient plug wires with new Accel 8mm cut-to-length custom wires. I'd never made my own plug wires before -- didn't screw them up too badly. The yellow isn't what I wanted but they were $60 cheaper than the red ones. Eph that. Turned out ok for my first attempt.

Passed my smog test. Practically zero CO, which the tech attributes to the perfect factory setting on this carb (Thanks, Ziggy!) but he says I can give it a bit more on the float level & still pass while gaining a bit more steady power in the middle RPM band. I may just leave it as-is since it's running pretty well now. Had a series of timing issues (hold-down bolt wiggled loose all by itself at some point).

Compression from 134 to 150 is most likely rings or valves, just my .05............ head gasket usually blows coolant

Unless it's a Modified motor with no coolant in the head. I don't think it would blow any out then.

It's a modified (335-series) engine. It's a 400. Minimal oil on the spark plug threads, no significant build-up on or near the burn surface.
