Overnight battery drain

OK you Bronco electrical gurus ; can a bad voltage regulator or a bad alternator drain a battery overnight ? I know a bad starter{ short } can do that among other things. I was having some charging inconsistancies previous to the drain down so I was doing a little trouble shooting and know the batte...

Did you find the latch levers and bezels in your parts bin ? I think it would be a little tough to upholster over those if they were still in place.
On the inboard side of the seat frame there is a " plate and spring " affair that the levers screw in to.

I'm not familiar with how the Aussie Lockers work so I can't say if they're similar or not. The Trutrac uses Planetary gears and transfers the power to the tire with the MOST resistance.

It just occured to me to look closer at your photo and it looks like you have disk brakes on your '69. So assuming you've still got the D-30 front end then you more than likely have the " Chevy conversion " and you won't be able to install that keeper. I don't remember how to address that but it's f...

Not an uncommon problem . You can screw a bolt into the threaded hole in the end of the axle shaft and then pull outward on the axle . This usually gives you enough to be able to install the keeper.
You can also use a pry bar against the axle u joint and push the axle outward.

That's pretty low even for " race motors " - if that reading is correct. Mine run 18 - 21 inches so I would look for a leak or move the gauge and get a reading from somewhere else

Do you have a power brake booster ? Do you have a C4 transmission?
Both have areas for potential vacuum leaks . If you have the PB booster check it for leaks and leak down and also the vacuum hose going to it.
Check the vacuum line and fittings coming the C-4

Do you know of Anyone who installed extended radius arms mainly for road handling/manners and not necessarily for the increased wheel travel ?

Not really sure about the tube but a lot of people remove the collar and replace it with a "solid billet " collar that doesn't have the " shifter ' connection point.

They're brackets for an extra set of shocks to help eliminate front wheel hop.
