my son and i started working on his 71 bronco my dad left for him. been sitting behind my shop for over 10 years now. he's into it, and doing almost everything himself with my direction. he's starting to realize that they don't actually restore a car in a hour long tv show.
dropped one tank, steam cleaned it out, all new hoses going back in. we had to figure out the MSD box wiring, since it had no spark. broken wire (everything is brittle) so we got spark now, pulled and gapped the plugs, with the plugs out put some oil in and cranked it over. cleaned the air filter, checked the fluids, and fired right up. hes out there now wrapping up the fuel tank mounting, with any luck we'll derive it in my back field tonight.
any other owners with helpful tips, etc is always appreciated.
i am going to put disc on the front at least, maybe all around. hoping for someone to chime in on this. also going with power brakes, vaccum i think, but open to ideas.

I am on my second. The one in front. Lots of fun, and easy to learn. Hydro boost brake unit is great, cheap and easy only need front disc. Tried EFI and went back to carb, keep it simple and have fun
