It lives again!
What a crazy adventure. So we had the storms from the hurricane that dumped almost two feet of rain on us which definitely delayed me! A poorly installed intake gasket that i re-did, new Ford Racing lifters, and the craziest coolant leak youve ever seen that led to swapping out for a different set of stock heads, but finally she's a runner once more!
Hopefully there will be no more problems popping up, cuz i am ready to turn some wrenches on the big bronco and finally get her running again!
