Have to make my own collector gaskets, because i dont know the brand of the headers, and i never found a gasket that matched. That said, this time i tried Remflex Gasket Sheet, and im sold. Easiest best stuff i ever worked with.
...and the header reinstalled!
Wrapped part of the y-pipe as well, since its so close to the trans pan. Hopefully this will help with the trans temps some!
First impressions are that it works pretty good, but ive only had it idling in the driveway. We'll see how well it does on the trail soon enough
Already running a 3G alternator in the '88, but its tired and isnt charging properly. Its a 200a unit that i built many years ago, and i dont have time to troubleshoot it before the ECBR next week, so i ordered a new 200a one from Powermaster:
After the Roundup ill put the old one up on the bench, disassemble/clean it, and see if i can fix it for a trail spare.
Also, header wrap!
Wrapped the passenger side header while still installed on the motor, that sucked! I dont recommend it.
i pulled the driver header to wrap that one on the bench:
Tomorrow itll go back in and then hopefully thats the last thing i have to do before the Roundup next week!
The 24th Annual East Coast Bronco Roundup is happening on June 23-25th at Twin Valley Campground. Its been a few years since weve attended (other than being passengers for trail rides), but this year we'll be there for the whole event, with both the 88 & 96 broncos! Hope to see everyone there!
