bronco ii


  1. Bad spark

    Hi, I’ve got a 1988 Ford bronco ii. It’s running like sh*t. I’m not sure exactly where I’m at with it. As in I’m not sure if any of the new parts I’ve put in are marking the problem worse, or if the bad part is getting worse over time. The spark from the coil to the distributor seems ok. The...

  3. Vibration/grinding noise

    Hi, I've got a 1987 Bronco II. It's a 2 wheel drive. It runs and drives well. When I bought the truck. It had a pretty bad grinding noise when I would go from stop at a red light to take off. I figured it was either sticking brakes or the transmission. I checked the brakes, but they looked ok. I...
  4. Injectors not seated?

    Hi guys, new heads on a 1986 2.9L Bronco 2. The new injectors on the passenger side don't seem to sit as far down as the drivers side. We unbolted and rebolted the fuel rail a few times and we can't seem to get the passenger side injectors to go down any lower with or without the fuel rail being...

    thoughts on high-idle

    Hey guys, so since my last post, I got my 2.9 put back together, in the truck, and it's running like a champ, purring like a kitten. You see the only issue that I'm having, which as I understand, is a 2.9 "thing" is that my idle won't go down no matter what I do to it. If I start the truck and...
  8. A4LD to M5OD swap?

    Hello! I'm pretty new here, so I hope I'm posting in the correct thread. TLDR: A4ld went out, want to find a M5OD to swap in. Skip to the "CONCLUSION" if you don't want the full story. I was given a 1990 Bronco II by my Grandpa, it's sort of been a family vehicle for a long time. I drove it...

  11. The $350 Immaculate Bronco II

    An introduction to me and my second recently acquired Bronco II- I might have found the greatest deal on any Bronco II, ever. It was purchased in 1990 to be towed behind and RV, and only got about 50,000 of actual road time before I got it a few days ago for $350... with 157k on the odo. It...
  12. Amazing 88 BII Barn Find!!

    So I've been a fan of the Bronco II since the 80's. A 1984 Manual 4x4 was the first car I owned in high school (Blue on Blue). Then in the mid 90's I ended up purchasing an amazing 88 (Grey on Blue) XLT which was my baby. I owned it for 10 years and with life and adding a child into the mix I...
  13. Bronco ii won't start after fuel pump replaced

    Hey all. I just replaced the fuel tank, pump and sending unit on my 1990 Bronco ii and can't seem to get it running again. Before replacing the tank and all that I did a full tune-up and replaced the map sensor and tps. I made sure everything was square and the truck was running well before...
  14. 89 BII

    I'd like to start off by saying I'm new to this whole scene, this is my first vehicle and I didn't know a thing about mechanics or trucks 2 months ago (so don't judge my noobness :icon_thumby: ).

    Lowering a 4x4 Bronco 2

    I've got a 1990 Ford Bronco 2 4x4, and I'd like to lower it. As far as I know, no one has done this, so when I google ways to do it, I only get ways to lift it. I was thinking about using lowering springs, but I don't know enough about them to do that. Also, since I'm on a budget, bags aren't an...

  19. 89 BII 2.9L Oil Pressure Drop

    After driving my BII for roughly 20 mins or so the oil pressure drops to where the engine will cut out at stop lights (almost like it is stalling). This problem is avoided by putting the deuce into neutral (automatic). I just changed the oil in this thing, and had this issue prior to my last...
  20. 302 swap questions

    Sorry for another thread on a 302 swap but I have a few questions. The 2.8 in my 85 bronco 2 may have finally given up on life and I don't want to wast any time replacing a boat anchor. I have a guy willing to get me a 302 and c4 tranny for 600 which is about all I can afford at the time. What...
