1979 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT Startup & Drive
Driving the 1979 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT with the durable 351M (Cleveland) V8 and C6 automatic transmission. I incorrectly mentioned in the video that the transmission was a Borg-Warner...it's a C6 3-speed auto with a Borg-Warner 4-wheel-drive transfer case. I have not had to use the 4-wheel drive, but it is functional with high and low ranges, and like other period 4-wheel-drive systems, you have to manually lock and unlock the front hubs. Even with over 130,000 miles, it still runs great and starts on the first crank. When I got it I had to replace the battery, headlight and taillight assemblies, windshield wipers, and repair the turn signal and reverse switches to get it on the road again. The taillights were difficult to find but LMC Truck took care of those. More work will be done to it in the near future to bring it to better condition than it is now, but it has been very well maintained and I really enjoy driving it. I wish new cars still had the personality this one has! A couple of other things: I have the radio antenna, but took it off since it's too tall for my tiny garage, and the aftermarket radio will be gone as soon as I can find a vintage Ford replacement on eBay. It also came with a vintage Motorola CB radio which isn't shown, I put it in the glove box since I usually plug my iPod into the cigarette lighter.

1979 BRONCO RANGER XLT REBUILD
Rebuild of my 1979 Ford Bronco Ranger Xlt while i was in Rolling Fork, MS. 2005 A montage of pics i put together from this time, i purchased this vehicle while working on a dredge job. I was pulling a twelve hour shift at the jobsite and then working on the Bronco on my time off. I had to purchase tools and such to do a complete rebuild from Wally World and the parts stores, I wasn't to happy with the quality of tools but hey I wasn't gonna make a trip to Dallas, TEXAS to get my personal tools. As i started into what I thought was going to be a quick fix, my don't "do it halfway" complex took over every step of the way, and needless to say i opened up a real big can of worms. The end game was very rewarding as you may be able to see. I used Gene Krupa and some music by The Meteors to help with the viewing. I had a lot of support from my girlfriend Kim P at the time of the rebuild. Questions and comments are welcome. just remember if you want to critique my work, "It is my truck and you aint got to ride in it" Look for the other vid of the engine test run also.
