heck yeah I love to save old Iron, thanks for the compliments. I have been daily driving a Bronco II for almost 20 years now. It has allowed me to afford some really cool toys to add to my stable. Good old reliable FORD TRUCKS!!
This 97 is my new baby.
I am thinking dark blue monstaliner cab and aluminum flatbed
Rear discs, custom interior, and whatever else I can come up with
I use this truck to haul firewood (we burn 14 cords a winter) and to haul a Polaris Ace (flatbed), Rzr XP10004 and a XP1K on my 24' bumper pull deck over. Of course the kids, dog and gear have to come along too.
So you can see why I always wanted a 4 door 7.3 e longbed!!
Lately I have been building kids mini quads, the last one looked like it was completely submerged in water for about 12 years before I got it
Running great now after full rebuild and customize! Now Im doing another Lt80 just like this one
Today I got the radiator, batteries, thermostat, belt and water pump out.
So much shaft play the impeller is rubbing the housing. Ordered a new AC
Delco unit from Rockauto along with a thermo and a tensioner setup.
I need a larger fan wrench, mine is about 1" too small
So I removed the pump with fan attached
Tomorrow I remove the turbo and pedestal
Will be ready for parts!
How hard / expensive isit to rebuild/ring the Oil cooler? It looks rather accessible right now
