I have an 89 bronco... that I have had many problems with. I have read the Haynes manual inside and out and have been all over the net trying to find a site like this one.Yes, I am allot smarter than I was a year ago, But I am also very grateful for stumbling across this site.
To whom the genius was who founded it...... thank you

Big Bronco Project

Hey guys I have just aquired a 1983 Ford Bronco XLT and I have some big plans for this Truck. This truck has been worked on and had a 460 V-8 4 barrel carberator (edlebrock) engine put in it. The Truck has been sitting for about 3 years before I aquired it. Last thing that was done to it was the Truck was running fine, from what i have been told. Then the battery was not getting a decent charge so the alternator was changed and hasnt run since. I dont have a wiring diagram so if anyone has one, I could really use one cause i cant seem to make heads or tails of the wiring harness. I had a good battery just put in so it has juice but when i turn the ignition switch on with the key I get nothing not even lights. Also whoever installed this V-8 in the Bronco did not do a good job with the wiring harness. Any suggestion or help in the right direction would be very much appreciated. Also another note is later on down the road i am intending on selling the whole powertrain from this truck to convert it to a Cummins Diesel engine but for now i just wanna get the truck running so i can work out the kinks.

On the Speed Density EFI Big Bronco's before you condemn a fuel pump check and make sure the fuel pump relay is operational and putting power to the pump the relay can hang up( it is on the drivers side inner fender panel near the aur cleaner box) and sometime tapping it will make the pump power up. You can confirm it by verifying voltage at the terminals or jumpering terminals to power the pump.

82~83 Ford Bronco 4X4

I bought an 82 or 83 Bronco 4X4 Lariat a few years ago. It was not running when I bought it and had been sitting around 4 years. Owner had just parked it and bought another vehicle. Tried to get my uncle, a mechanic with 20+yrs experience, to help me get it running. He took one look at the variable venturi carbeurator and said he would help me once I got a new carb. I have been all over looking for a regular Motorcraft 4-barrel carb to convert to, or just a regular old 2-barrel. (He told me that the Motorcraft carbs were the easiest to rebuild.) Can anyone help? It is in great shape, but a little weathered. Just want to get her running again.
Thanks!
P.S. THIS is how I feel!

Welcome to FTE and the Big Bronco Forum. We will do our best to get you the most accurate info we can dig up. I would suggest posting this question to the main part of the Big Bronco Forum as this thread deals with FAQ's and your questions is rather specific. Wouldn't hurt to try a search of the forum either. Was also unaware that Ford ever put the variable venturi carb in the Bronco. Everything I've ever seen has been Motorcraft, Holley, or Autolite.

If you are a sensitive guy with a thin-skin then yeah, I can see where
you'd have trouble with FSB. LOL :) Is that the case?

I've got my own YouTube video, made just for me, by an FSB moderator,
of all people, I am so proud of this...

Gotta disagree with you here, friend. I have maintained a screen name (I simply don't contribute) over there for a long while now and there really is no good reason for the general inconsiderate attitude and rudeness displayed by a number of people over there. Just because someone is new to the Bronco or even trucks in general is absolutely no excuse for the demeaning and rude behavior routinely displayed particularly towards newbies on that site. When I started here several years ago, I had some of the dumbest questions now that I think back on it but no one here felt the need to tell me how stupid I was or that I should learn what I am talking about before I ask dumb questions. I've been invited to FSB. I've been invited to other Ford truck forums and sites. I stay here because there is none of that attitude tossed around whats more, if there is, it is dealt with as it should be. Asking a question is not an invitation to be berated for not knowing the answer because the ONLY "stupid question" is the one you DON'T ask.

Cool one Streaker. :)

Yeah FSB had to add a "Noobie No Flame Zone" forum! LOL :)

I disagree with the "stupid question" thing tho. :)
OK, I agreed back when I was in elementary school, but haven't since. ;)

Newsgroup stuff...
a) "stupid question" = hadn't bothered to read -anything- before asking
b) "one line questions" deserve one line answers

If it's both a "one liner" and a "stupid question, well heck, they're asking
for it! LOL :)

If the OP doesn't get defensive and throw a hissy-fit, the answer will get
posted for 'im, usually. BTDBoth things to an OP in the same thread many
times. LOL :) Even on FTE.

And a new one I've figured out on website forums here lately...
c) If they didn't bother to fill out the information about where they are,
they tend to be lazy and not worth helping. :/

Even if it's cryptic-crap like {our} location{s}, at least it's something. ;)

We are. The talk of FSB will stop after my post here, and any further discussion on it will simply be deleted. They can operate as they please, and so can we. Back to your regularly scheduled programming....
