Yep - what those two guys said ^ I run Detroit TruTracs since I mainly street drive mine. I'm really happy with em for my needs . Install and forget and less money than " selectables". Thanks for all the responses. The TruTrac sounds about what I'm looking for. Did you have to upgrade your spline o...

They were old, and probably the cheapest I could buy 18 years ago, which was the last time I replaced them. (Cracked one in a fender bender. My winch bumper took a beating, but the Pontiac Sunbird was totaled). They're gone now, so I can't tell you for sure. Upgraded to the LEDs...wish I had done it...

To be honest, I have no complaints regarding my bronco's street handling. I think it handles darn good for a 44 year old truck. I don't do any extreme four wheeling, because I can't afford to fix, nor do I want to put dents in it. It's in good shape, but not cherry by any means. The tires are just 3...

It turns out that the problem was the headlamps. Both brights were burned out. I installed a new lamp on one side just to double check my theory this morning and it was confirmed...it worked just fine. Still not sure how it happened. Thanks for all the input. I still learned a lot about trouble shoo...

A 'circuit tester' will not put a load on the system... your volt meter may say everything is good, but if you run a load on it, poor connections or an 'open' may pop up as a result an inoperative lamp. If you ohm test the headlamp itself, is there continuity between the terminals of the bulb (when...

While you're mucking about in the wiring, swap relays from one to the other. You know the low-beam relay is working, so try swapping it to the high size just to see if the trouble follows. If it does then you have a bad relay. If it doesn't change, then the fault is back in the wiring. It could act...

Thanks for the advice. I've already checked the floor switch by using a jumper cable on the cannon plug. They didn't work even when the switch was isolated. I also replaced the dash headlight switch for good measure. I'll start doing a good cleaning on the grounds. One thing I don't have that you ju...

Hey, I hate to bring back an old post, but I'm having this problem now. I've read through this, and still don't see any definitive answers.

Anybody have a clear solution to the high beam problem before I start buying parts?

Problem is solved...I think. I changed the voltage regulator and everything looks normal. We'll see in the morning after it sits long enough to drain...but I'm relatively certain that it is fixed.

I'm glad to see some good has come from this thread, and that you've all been having fun. Paul, what you describes sounds about right. I was going to attach it to one of the upper fittings on the tank, then just cap anything that wasn't used. You know, I completely stalled on this project. Things go...

Ok, so the alternator is practically new. It's been installed for less than a year. I've replaced the battery cables, the solenoid, and I'll probably replace the voltage regulator. It's been a long time, so I can't remember...is it possible to install a ignition cylinder wrong so that it could in th...

Where do I check the ignition cylinder, is there a convenient place under the hood to check it, or just under the dash? And tell me more about this beeper. Is it the same as a volt meter?

Changed the battery and it starts right up. I think that I have a short causing it to drain. I disconnected the battery for now, but does anybody have advice as to how I can find where the short is? Areas to check with a voltmeter, common culprits, etc?

Update...battery is dead after all. So I guess the question is why does it keep dying. Replaced the solenoid, and battery cables. Just waiting for it to charge enough to start. Charger works fine with new cables.

Battery Cables bad?

Weird problem. Bronco won't start...as if the battery is dead. When I connect a charger to the battery, attaching the clips to the battery cable connectors where they attach to the battery, it says that there is not a good connection. If I disconnect the cables and attach to directly to the battery,...

Definitely not a PO mod, clearly screws into the tank. My feeling is that it is the vent hose that goes to the charcoal canister, but I just wanted to be sure before I get too deep into this. I only take pause because I'm not sure why the 'thingamajig' is required to vent the tank.

It was from inside the tank. The hose just sort of disappears up into the truck. I'm not sure what it attaches to. I was hoping you knew so that I would know where to attach the hose on the new tank.

Steel Auxiliary Tank Install

In the process of installing a new auxiliary tank. In the process of disconnecting my old tank, I found this probe. Not sure what it is, and therefore I'm not sure where to connect this hose. Does anybody know what this is?
