I would not rather pay for a side by side, when I can build an awesome rig like this.

Mine may be on a skidder platform though

Got a few things done.




Getting the brakes working ended up being new shoes and hardware also. And a trip to the Carquest in the next town over because mine didn`t have the hardware kit for the 12.5x3.5 brakes. Between work and other summer stuff it took me a month to get this job done.

But the brakes only worked for a few applications before needing bled again. I figured out why when I fabbed the brake pedal stop/brake light switch mount. Turns out the spring that was holding the pedal to keep the pushrod from falling out was pushing in the piston on the master cylinder and causing the brakes not to bleed properly. And leak. Unhooking the spring solved both problems.



I have a brake light switch and put a tab on the brake pedal to contact it. I also have brakes now. Pretty happy about that lol. About that same time I finally built the rear shock mounts. I used some 1/4x2 that I had laying around. Thought I`d taken a pic, but I didn`t. I`ll get one.

I also fabbed the transfer case shift linkage a couple weeks ago while taking a break from firewood. Between the 70s NP205 shifter and a clocked 1356, I had to modify everything. And it took the better part of a late afternoon and all evening lol.




The pictures don`t really do justice to what I went through lol.

One owner/ops that brings logs to us let me borrow a known good Carter 600. It made a difference in the performance, but wasn`t the whole answer. And it turned out having some issues of it`s own. Put my carb back on and borrowed an Accel HEI Super coil from my buddy.



Now that solved the breaking up issue. And getting it good and warm helps the bog. But the Accel coil required a 1" spacer between the carb and air cleaner housing so I could put that back on. Keep in mind it has an air gap knock off dual plane with a 1" carb spacer already. That 302 is getting pretty tall.

And I think I messed up the t case. It hasn`t left the garage since the t case linkage was built. I fired it up and moved it back and forth to see if it was going into low range and that was it. So I needed a break and hopped in it last night. Started backing it out of the garage and it humped up and went bang. 4x still works but it`s making a rythmic
noise now that wasn`t there before. Good times.

I`ll tear it apart and fix it. While it`s a common Borg Warner 13-56, It`s a special little snowflake out of an 87 Bronco which has a fixed/bolt on rear yoke instead of a slip yoke like most other 13-56s.

Of course I scrapped out another 87 Bronco year before last after robbing the front yoke off that transfer case

And that pic of the rear shock mounts. I mounted them halfway up the axle tube so they didn`t hang down like stock.



I also built those rear shock mounts. The factory mounts on a 10.25 are cast steel and had to be moved. And some dummy got custom u bolts to long. So I built new perches out of of 3" square tube and made them 1" taller so my u bolts would fit.
