REAR BRAKE LINES, PLEASE READ:
Looks like 80 to at least 93, the F150s have 3/16" fittings going to both wheel cylinders and the right side of the fitting at the brake hose that comes down from the frame. But on the left side it uses a fitting thats one size bigger. When replacing lines on the axle you will need an adaptor fitting or a special brake line that some parts stores sell. Don't get stuck at the shop doing the lines on your only vehicle when you are 5 miles from the parts store.

'82 300 Bronco: a Borg-Warner T-19 (from an 87 F-250 6.8 diesel) was the easiest, straight-up, swap that I've done. It should work on all '80-'86 manual 300 Broncos.

I had a BW T-18, with the non-synchro 1st gear. The close ratio T-19 gives you a more functional (& synchronized) 1st gear. The CR is around 4:1 in 1st, but I understand that a ~5:1 and ~6:1 may also be found.

The T-18 & 19 appear identical ( & thus the easy swap), except that the T-19 has a PTO cover on BOTH sides.
'82 FSP Bronco. Just about every mod ever mentioned. ( Too much to list - or remember...)

Speedometer Calibration

This is for all Ford trucks at least up to 1994 with electronic speedos

A TSB with all the codes for all three speedo types is posted here 1983 Ford Bronco TSBs & FSAs (Recalls) for '83-96 Broncos & F150s picture | SuperMotors.net

(From the TSB)
1. Determine which type speedometer/odometer is being installed. The following procedure applies for both "stand-alone" and gauge "cluster" type speedometer/odometer units. (Replacement units are either the 12-switch Beede or the 10-switch Ametek type. The 10-switch Beede has been discontinued for service.)
2. If the unit to be calibrated is a 10-switch type, determine if it is an Ametek or a Beede by looking at the type of electrical connection on the back. The Beede has four (4) "studs", while the Ametek has a single plug-in type connector. If a 10-switch Beede is replaced with a 10-switch Ametek, a simple electrical jumper wire will be included with the new speedometer.
3. There are three speedometer setting charts: Ametek 10-position, Figure 1; Beede 12-position, Figures 2-5; and Beede 10-position; Figure 6.

The info on figureing out which brand speedo you have is NOT in the factory service manual!!!

And the 2nd way to do it for the beede speedos
Them there is this PDF From hanebeede:
http://www.haneline.com/hanebeedeinstruct.pdf

Look at pages 9 and 10 for speedo settings.
