friend had a shop rebuild his 3.0 only to loss the tranny 1600 mile later! in my case i rebuilt the 2.8 and a4ld tranny in my bronco 4x4 ,but autozone sold me a weak upper hose = somebody cut it with there box cutter (not all the way thru) and i never saw it till my motor blew at 3am on way home, my crappy gauge didnt say it was hot cause the dam water left befor sensor can read it = i should of bought an after market gauge=live and learn!
1985 bronco II 4x4 with a stock 2.8 and rebuilt a4ld with modified flywheel plate to stop front seal blow outs plus high performance parts put in that tranny = its ok! i got to play in w.v big sandy and did have a blast! till an upper hose change recently! pssss ;(

Im from charleston s.c! And if a/c is an issue ill leave it out! even tho there are times when its needed. I cant say the 1989 3.0 is diff. from the 90's model 3.0l but its all i got and a 302 boss eng. with a heavy cam & 289 heads & elenbrok highrise intake, but no tranny to go with it! and money is an issue atm. 3.0 will require only my labor & time! witch i have atm.=no work=no money= wife make's good money but pay's the bill's and through's me a bone at time's! she wears the pants =im her bitch (ATM)!! ;(
P.S yes plz post it at b2 im a noob dont know much! but im trying! = half the battle to learning!
