Sceep,
I'd try some new injectors or have that set cleaned. We had same problem with 302 that sat for about a year, injectors rusted at the tips. Once we got new ones she started and ran fine. Pepdaddy

Sceep, I don't have the axle in front of me right now, but it's out of a f150, thinking about 76-77ish. The truck was stacked in a crush pile at Brannex and I talked 'em into pulling it for me. I got a really killer Dana 21/NP435 combo with it too. Thought I was getting a 205, but could just barely see the case when the truck was in the pile. Does your Dad still have his setup? I just got my shop finished and will be tearing into the EB in the next few weeks. I already have a C4 with adaptors for it, but am still sitting on the fence as to whether I'm going auto or stick.

Hopefully monday the 12th. I have a trail I'm supposed to lead on the 11th, was going to take dads bronco, but now that this is coming together. I may take it for a shakedown. depends on if i have time to get the spool in this weekend. Pretty tight trail for it though, also pretty tough for a ungeard single locked rig. we'll see. I'll at least drive it to the trailhead! LOL

I always wire mine to the green wire with yellow marks on it.

oh, i guess I should say it is the one by the coil...

according to chiltons green/yellow should goto the instrument panel connector pin 8. but it also says that a red/lt. blue wires goes to the tach... I always use the green/yellow on the coil

To do it with the least effort, just run a fresh wire from the tach to the coil.

some people were buggin me for some pics of the bikini, so i figured i might as well take a whole slew of updates for this thread.

bikini-

b pillar attachment velcros back to itself


c pillar attachment, again, back to itself

side attachments velcro to the tube

and the top flap to keep the rain/puddles from draining down the back of your neck

with it attached to the tube on both sides, you can tighten it up on both ends VERY tight.. the thing doesnt flap AT ALL. came out very good.

anyway.. onward..

new front bumper-

this weeks project...


so after patching up the 3rd hole inthe tank, thanks to its gargantuan size, and paper thin skid plate, i decided it was time to take more serious action.

heres the only pic that i have that shows how low the OEM tank was. around 8" below the frame.

el sucko grande!


so yeah, lets fix that a bit.










22 gallons. flush with the frame. no body lift. now all i gotta do is get the exhaust reworked slightly.
