So for a very long time, now, my remote oil filter has been hanging down underneath the bronco. So its time we get this thing reinstalled!
With my fenders liners being different this time, my original mount/location for it no loner exists. So im doing it a little differently. Bought a derale mount with side ports, and the stubby Motorcraft oil filter
This is where im mounting it. It look super roomy there, but once you add in the intake tubing and the radiator, its actually very tight.
My original hoses ended up needing to be shortened
closeup w/ intake reinstalled. Theres just enough room to fit it all, and just enough room to drop the filter
So with that done, lets look at the battery tray. This whole section of the harness was disassembled. Ford had very long pigtails going to the head & turn signal lights so i shortened both to clean up the mess of wires. That plug that hangs down near the headlight is 2 grounds for the harness (it goes to the battery ground on the frame). One for the ECM and one for the ABS ECU. Obviously im not using the ABS anymore but i left the ground in the harness. I also added an additional two ground wires into the plug which both ground to the battery ground as well. These wires also ground to the fender, which gives me a good ground location for some future electrical accessories.
Starter relay reinstalled, all the alternator wiring plus my 250a mega fuse for the alt. Basically, the last of the harness is now done except for battery cables!
However, that dead space of the fender is gonna get filled up, once i start adding in everything else i still need:
