i just got a 1983 Bronco. I was looking to get some advice and maybe see if i could get some help. this truck has sat up for ten years and im kinda scared to jump in head first. it first had a 6 banger in it. im glad it had a 351M trasplant. i am just woundering if there is anything i should be midful of with this trucks age. when i first started to mess with it i was worried that the clutch would be froze up. i guess i dodged a bullet when i put it in natual and i started to roll. i went to crank it and i was suprised that it fired right up. ive dropped the tank and removed the old fuel it had a very pungent odor to it and it came out black and it slight orange tint to it. i took a light looked in the tank and there was trash all in the bottom of the tank and i took a presher washer and spayed all the trash out and it was one of the cleanest fuel tank ive ever seen. saddly i have ran in to a problem with a set of long tube headers. when i hooked them up on the drver side my frount drive shaft is hitting my headers. im just looking for some help. thanks
Thanks, but I don't think that a 78 bronco had that yet. I think I mite have wires crossed or something. I don't have a good memory now, its a medical thing, just asking for someone to maby tell me where the wires go. Please and thank you.
not really sure, i know there is (2) large post, one on each side. then theirs (2) small post on the front. battery on one side, starter on the other, (sides). (front) when i plug the wires to it, the starter starts turning. i have been working on vehicles for about 17 years, (just a shade tree guy) i work on my things. But, this wiring thing has stumped me.
