Bought Timing Tape, and a MSD Digital 6AL box (one with the Rev Limiter) for the Bronco. Going to Order a 3in Electric Dump later on this week. And prepping tools and the garage for the motor install this upcoming weekend.

I tried and failed at replacing some fuses. I have the glass ones and the PO decided he was too cheap to buy some so he used tin foil. Of course this doesn't jive with me too well so i figured i would take a look and fix it. Turns out i don't have the correct fuse either... I did however pull the tin foil out for safety sake. once i get some more fuses that will work i can fix it. One was for the instrument cluster and the other i am not sure about. All it said was coast Lbs and it was i think 15 amp.

I finished welding the firewall and painted it. I went back to working on my front hub rebuild. TGM is inspiring me. I dug out the bumper I am going to be using on the rear of my Bronco and started figuring out how to modify it to work.

Thought about starting it, but was too lazy to
Get the keys. Maybe tomorrow.
Maybe not, two other trucks need oil changes.

Ordered all of the wheel bearings and seals to rebuild 1 side of the front axle. Since I am converting it to 8 on 6 1/2 outers from a Dana 44 HD to make the front match the Dana 60 rear. I figured this would be a great time to rebuild everything. I only got 1 side cause it will probably be another few months before I got to the other side...

Yeah learning how to work on cars. Putting headers/gaskets on is the best place to start! I haven't done it yet, but i plan to use TGM today to help a friend and co-worker of mine move out of her apartment. Now that i can safely drive it, it is the only truck she knows up that can haul her bed and chair.

I picked up my wheel bearings from Auto Zone then got in trouble when I got home for spending too much time in the garage. I agreed to spend time with my wife and son in the house tonight. I made dinner, gave him a bath, and put him to bed. Then I sat on the couch with my wife while she watched her TV shows and I started typing up my build thread (finally) on the laptop while sitting next to her.
Here it is.

At least that is the start, I'll keep updating it as I have time until I get it to where I am now.
Stay safe and keep working on those Bronco's!

Bigzirb, Already following your build,looks Good! Mine started out the color too.

Playing with the bronco today, Switched the vacuum advance from a ported vacuum on the carb to full time manifold vacuum. Found out the advance in the dizzy is bad. So that could be why it pops so much When I get on it?
Hope to find the other dizzy this weekend!
