Hi Paul :wavey:
 
Wow, if I had you-guys' money I'd just burn mine. xD

My wife surprised me with a rear shock mount from the wreckin' yard today.
She had to go into town early and came home with it. :) $30

"we'll get it off and have it for you in two days"
"WHAT? :/ it took me less than two hours to chisel this one off :)"
"ok, wait right here I'll have a guy go get you one :/"
...took about 30 minutes total, they used a blue wrench.

Anyway the '91 Bronco's rear shock mounts can't handle Rancho 5000s! :(

Got any suggestion for a fix? I've got an idea but would like to hear some
ideas before preceding. xD

So me and my wife replaced the one side that had the stud broken clean
off and checked the other and found it cracked so we welded it up using
6011 "farmer rod". ;) But had to stop to cook steaks outside over mesquite
wood so will finish up tomorrow (if I get any sleep).

--------------------------------

All the posts about keys, here's what I did with little-itty-bitty retirement
money...
Bronco-ignition.jpg

The ignition switch was free from a '75 C700. xD

Had to buy and used three Bosch-relays to operate the '91 Bronco's higher
current system. Took a Gen.8's ignition switch apart and drilled holes in the
contacts to solder-in my new wiring so the system I'm using didn't burn any
bridges. Not just for that but also made it easy for me to just plug my stuff
into it (and out if needs be).

I re-pinned the C700's (like new) ignition switch to match my '75 F150 key. xD

I didn't get an original key with the Bronco, it was abandoned, it only came
with cheap copies. But the door key for the bronco happened to match the
door key for the '90 parts truck and it came with two original door keys. LOL :)

FiNgured out -I- got the wrong shocks on the rear of the '91 Bronco! :/
They're about 1+1/2" too long when collapsed.

Dumber than dumb in AZ

I've often wondered about those high volume oil pumps. If the oil doesn't drain back down fast enough , what happens ?

Oil at 180* drains like water.


The oil drains back plenty fast. Most of your oil recirculates via pressure relief anyways with a high volume low pressure pump and a good portion goes to the crank/mains/rods where it just falls into the pan. The valve covers dont get that much so it doesnt really build up in that region anyways. The lifters/cam do get a lot but they drain back quick too along with the timing chain.

Theres really no down side to high volume.

high pressure on the other hand forced me to sell a car once. :banghead:
