(even) more parts for the '90!
The parts pile grows.
One complete set of leaf springs out of an Excursion! The front leafs are U-Code, and will be perfect for doing a leaf SAS on the '90. The rear leafs will go on the pile for now, as possible replacement springs for the rear of the '96 F250.
more parts for the '90!
So weve got this '97 10.25 with 4.10s thats been sitting around in the yard, so were going to use this for the rear axle.
Up front the plan was to do another 3/4 ton TTB using chevy parts, with a junkyard third since the '90 has 3.55 and we want 4.10. So we made a trip up to EZ Pull, and scored:
While we were there we also picked up a newer dome light, and a big trans cooler, both of which will be going in:
The icing on the cake though, is this:
All that work disassembling a 3/4 ton chevy D44, just so we could find a '96 D60 (w/ 4.10s) later! And for a price we couldnt pass up. So now these are sitting in the driveway:
So new plan. Chevy parts go on shelf for spares for the '96, and the '90 is getting a solid axle swap!
So we're not ready to start the '90 Bronco build yet, but that doesnt mean we're not gathering parts for it! The current plan is to go 3/4 ton on 35s like the 96 is. And it just so happens we found a set of tires on Marketplace, brand new, for a price too good to pass up so we picked em up and brought em home.
315/70/17. Brand new, still have the stickers on them. Load Range E, and they have the 3 peak snow rating. i think theyre gonna do pretty good. Time will tell!
Well...here we go again!
So we found a '90 on Marketplace thats been sitting around for several years. Needs a fuel pump plus a bunch of other minor things from sitting unused for years, but its in good shape, and the price was right, so we decided to pick it up!
Rear wheel arch is in good shape despite that rust-causing trim. Theres a hole in the bottom corner of the fender we'll have to deal with though
Just a little bit in this wheel well...
...and its definitely going to need a tailgate
The gas tank is rotted and leaking, fuel pump doesnt work, and the brake system is dry. But its got good bones, so we're gonna give it a second lease on life!
