from my experience, i have never started up a car/truck and had it imediatly rev to 3000 RPM's. i dont think thats a good thing bro.

Re: I just bought an 1987 ford bronco II

If it has been sitting for awhile, the spring on the accelerator cable is probably stuck. Mine did that this winter. Nothing a little spray of WD-40 won't cure !!! Always check the little things before thinking the worse !!! LOL

Re: I just bought an 1987 ford bronco II

you shall be Flogged indefinately if you "Pimp Out" this truck......
1: go to www.lmctruck.com and get a free catalog for your truck parts (this comes in handy as theyre one of the few only places to get parts if your brakes)

2: i have a 87 BII XLT 4x4 it these trucks make great 4x4's... check out www.jamesduff.com for your 4x4ing needs (they have some great deals there)

3: if u must "Pimp Out" this ride, u must first do a 5.0 Swap on it, so its worth to race and defend on the street, and trust me the average car is 4900 - 5500 lbs and the BII is around 2500-3000 lbs ... which means this sucker could fly...

like i said these were not meant to be "Pimped Out" with the right love and right driver this truck can become a MEAN 4x4 Machine... also ..

for Tech resources ... check out these links

www.BroncoII.org (great place to get help and get some of those hard to find parts other users are upgrading from/too...also there are alot of Tech write ups there..)
www.TheWebWheeler.com
www.therangerstation.com

also good idea to subscribe to the Bronco Drive magazine
www.broncodriver.com


hope this helps... remember Rice Is Better On A Plate Than A Driveway...

confused Re: I just bought an 1987 ford bronco II

Thanks for the great info. I have a 1988 Bronco II XLT. It is the 2.9 5speed. It has given me great service but lately it seems to want to have some hesitation and even backfires sometimes. I have started using premium unleaded fuel and that helps but I am wondering if I need something else. I have had it tuned up - not in the last few months but about 6 months ago. Have had all the belts and hoses replaced. Does anyone have any ideas? Should I have the injectors cleaned or replaced? It has about 131,000 miles on it. Thanks in advance for your help and advice.
