Text is hard to do on autodesk

I actually fixed the tbi. Coolant temp sensor was bad, telling the computer it was -32* so it was dumping fuel. So hopefully the frowny face won't be lit up much.

Don't worry, I only drink lonestar now

The body will soon be replaced. I'm sick of it being beat to shit haha. I have another 79 bronco body that i'm going to take 12" out straight down the middle. Then it's time for a cage, steering and gears.

Thanks, My autodesk subscription ran out and i'm having hell getting it for free again (free for Texas A&M students). I'm not about to pay 20k for it.

I am self taught.....Engineering is too much math. I'm trying to learn to stress test to build a strong cage. I'm having a hard time making bent tube, the only way I know how to do it is extruding following a line.

any help would be awesome.

Like a true Texan......

From the sounds of it your taking the 79 big body and making it the width of an EB....

I like it...

No, not being able to wheel is lame. I'll build an efi motor when I graduate and have money.

If it were a factory tbi setup or if I knew how to tune that computer it would be different. I'm sick of dumping money into it.

I have two choices

1.
-Megasquirt Computer, relay board and relay wiring harness ($350)
-Engine wiring harness ($180)
-Summit Racing HEI 1 wire distributor ($125)
Total:$655

2.
-Motorcraft 2bbl (Free, got it)
-Rebuild kit ($13)
-4bbl-2bbl Adapter ($17)
-Summit racing HEI 1 wire distributor ($125)
Total: $155

I'll probably go with option 1 eventually but right now its not really drivable and I can get everything I need by the end of the week.

How opposed are you to running a Q-jet? They are damn near free and a breeze to rebuild and tune. Just ask JB and cook how well mine ran on angles. Also has 10x the power the stock 2bbl motorcraft ever did. Adapter is $12.


Also, I don't know if you fubar'd your stock distributor when you did the TBI, but since you work at advance I'd look into the MSD 'Street Fire' ignition. HEI is desirable, but I only paid $125 for the box and coil, you could probably get it cheaper.

Last ditch effort to fix the tbi. I have a new chip coming in the mail. If that doesn't fix it It'll be Carbureted for a while, then Howell harness with a tach filter or megasquirt.

I'm trying to scare it into working

2bbl is going on tomorrow.

Doing recovery for the Texana 250 this weekend. I need some power to pull some fancy 2wd $1,000,000 trucks out of the sand

Turns out there are many different variations of the motorcraft 2bbl. One of them (which happens to be the one I had) doesn't fit on a normal 2bbl intake. It has a different shaped base which creates a huge vacuum leak on a 2bbl adapter.

So I took my roomates 91 bronco and I literally drove the wheels off, the driver rear to be exact.

Now it runs awesome with a different motorcraft 2bbl and summit hei distributor.

Stock bronco up top, bottoms are bronco retainers bolted to 3/8 plate welded across the top of the stock SD coil bucket mount and the radius arm mount.

We built a baja course on our 5 acres. It has rained for the past week and its a sloppy mess......there were some lonestars involved

It's a summit brand distributor. Probably made in China but it works well for now. It was on sale for $130.

I wish that I had enough room for a baja course. We have 3 acres but I think that I would get yelled at for ripping around the property

So did you forget to lift off the gas when you got air born or did you come up short on a jump?

It takes a lot of force to do that to a u joint.

The centering yoke on the double cardan blew a seal and it lost all of its grease. It started wobbling and broke the weld yoke and that broke the joint.

It was too wet to go fast. I buried it (actually my roomate buried it)and the reverse and forward trying to get out was the final straw for it I think.

Last night we had 5 trucks out there trying to get me out but they all buried themselves too. So 4 hours later we were all out. Then the cops showed up and bitched at us for making too much noise.
