Thanks, I just got started reading tech stuff over here... there's only 1 page of threads, but lots to go through. I'm almost done reading the Falcon Performance Handbook, lots of good info in that thing too. Great part is that I can highlight stuff cause it's my book! The next one is gonna be a Weber Tuning book. You know if anyone else is running a Weber on their rig?

I don't think many Bronco guys have the Weber but many car people do. But only a few Bronco six guys on the planet. I have heard of a Weber forum but know nothing about it.

Thanks for the info, I found the Weber forum, but navigating it warrants some caution because of the following warning on the site: "Alert! Please do not buy anything or pay anyone on this forum. Scammers have been reported on our forum. Please also do not go to any links posted on here. We have been reported about links to websites that contain viruses. Thank you." Lots of good info on there too, I already read some posts and it seems to be the ONLY Weber forum on the net I cam find.

Ok guys (and girls, collectively), here's the pics of My 66 in the condition that I got it. She was fouling a plug when I bought her and needed to be finessed when shifting from 1st to 2nd, which took me a few stops on the side of the road to get the shift rod levers to release where they were binding on each other, but I eventually got it down. Next post will be all the work that I've done since then, which was quite a bit and still a lot left to do...

Not bad considering it's age. Rust in the usual places, caked on oil and grime in the usual gasket leak spots (many soon to be replaced).

Yeah, the dimple is there to stay. I probably won't even repaint the small spot, maybe just some rust inhibitor and then clear coat it.

That's a good point and very true... upgrading to the DUI and Weber was cool and I'm looking forward to installing a Mini VIP and headers.

Ok guys here's the build so far... after 1 plug fouling turned into 3, she became undriveable and then everything took a dump at once (ignition and radiator included). She was down for almost 2 years because I worked a lot, rode my Harley all the time and just didn't take it upon myself to make time to get her running. When I finally did, it was one of the greatest feelings... I did it on my own, by reading forums, books and manuals and by asking questions. To those of you who contributed, whether you know or not, I thank you... So far, I've installed a reman cylinder head (from Cylinder Heads of Clear Water), DUI/Livewires and Weber 32/36 DGV (CI), new radiator (TBP), new puke tank (NPD) and Sunpro vacuum/boost gauge and Tach (Autozone).

More pictures to come for the gauges, tires and wheels and the current stage of the build which include: D20 TC Input Shaft Needle Bearings install (when I pulled it apart, it was missing 2 of the 12! Oh CRAP!), new clutch and ring gear, starter rebuild (separate thread) and drive train repaint and reinstall, diffy to diffy.

Nice progress. Think about replacing that hard plastic vacuum line in intake, it won't last long. They sell a copper replacement for it at any parts store.

I was thinking the same thing when I installed it. Will I need special tools or just a little tlc when routing it?

No special tools. Forms easily, compression fitting just like the plastic tubing. Tubing cutter is a plus to keep from deforming when cutting to length, deburr after cutting.

Awesome. I don't like how it looks right now, it looks like ass... nice to know replacement will be a snap and clean. Any advice when routing the line our just do it to it?

I have to admit, once I got the new tires on (before the clutch went out) the truck looked totally different with tires that actually had tread lol... and it was actually much easier to steer compared to when it had baldy's. No one knows that whole drive line is sitting in the back lmao!
