    Dual battery set up - will this work correctly?

    Basically all of your wiring is like factory, You are just adding a second battery and connecting it to the positive post of the first battery through an isolator. Maybe you are looking for a more complicated answer than it is?

    Dual battery set up - will this work correctly?

    It will work that way as long as you are buying an actual isolator and not a generic solenoid. It will charge the aux battery. A generic solenoid will not charge the battery. Some retailers do not understand the difference so as long as you know what you are buying then you are good to go. It...

    Dual battery set up - will this work correctly?

    the main battery goes to the starter solenoid like normal. the diagram you have posted, when the solenoid is activated it will essentially connect the two batteries in parallel. Which will double the current to the starter OR aux device you are running. Was that your goal? I don't see...

    Tiny piece for carb

    Never ever had to deal with emissions testing sorry no help there. How does it idle? Spitting in 4th gear can be caused by a vacuum leak, which could very well be related to the solenoid you are trying to fix. And of course it could be related to a restricted fuel filter or timing advance as...

    Tiny piece for carb

    I am not sure, but I think that is just part of the vapor recovery which is not all that important. Hopefully someone else will follow up. As far as choke adjustment, they are adjustable. that is the dial on the other side of the carb. You can see the back on it in the picture you posted...

    87 Bronco - Runs inconsistently - Seriously need advice.

    The fuel pump sticking on concerns me, that maybe the replacement EEC was no good? beyond that, rainy day problems for me was always cap, rotor, plug wires. Sounds like you have a heat soak issues, like ignition module or pick up module. Maybe even a bad coil. Can you get a fuel pressure...

    How to install a new cam on my 408 stroker engine

    Installing the cam isn't that hard. Plenty of videos and write ups. Have to pull the valve covers, intake. Timing cover. Radiator, ac condenser. (unless you are pulling the engine. Timing is simple. Just line up the notches on the sprockets. Have you already made sure your valve springs can...

    Nope Not The Northern Plains, South Texas

    Driving on ice and snow is easy! When I train people I tell them it is simple, Don't touch the gas pedal, Don't touch the brake pedal, and Don't turn the steering wheel.

    Smog pump help

    I believe the intake ran up and onto the passenger side fender well. Like a 1" hose, had a round metal can on the end as a filter or baffle. Then nothing on the outside of that. Just kind of an open hole.

    Starting Problem

    That looks like a 2 pump system. The in tank pump feeds the high pressure pump on the frame rail. Neither should be running with the key off. Both should run with the key on, at least run for a few seconds before shutting off again. Do you have a fuel pressure gauge? If you can verify...

    Smog pump help

    You can leave it with the belt on. Does it still have the intake filtered or baffled? With the intake hose removed they tend to suck in a bunch of dirt and then lock up. So leaving the pump in place is a short term solution. Start looking for a shorter belt.

    No holes in roof.

    You sure can use blind rivets. Kind of overkill but it would be more solid. Overhead consoles are the worst. Holes never seem to line up again.

    I am in the upper midwest, my wife's family is down around mcallen. TX. Funny thing is they visited a week ago. Experienced about an inch of snow or more every day for a few days. Temps swinging down to -5 at night. They were so happy to get back home to highs in the 20s LOL. Still I will...

    No holes in roof.

    That area is has space between the roof and trim. You can drill and use sheet metal screws without going through the roof. You will be putting the straps right on the plastic trim. That is how my truck has them. 2 sheet metal screws, each end. Kind of a leather strap in between. My kids hang...

    1990 Bronco

    Sounds like a bad tire or balance issue, maybe flat spotted. Go get them balanced, tire shop should notice if there is something wrong with them. Typically a bad tire takes a lot more weight than the others. Otherwise grab the driveshaft and make sure it is solid. Once those are checked, see...

    Compressor / AC Issue

    It is most likely low on charge. 1994 bronco should be R134 freon, you can get those cans with a hose at walmart or any parts store and do it yourself. it is normal for these trucks to leaks some. Cheaper to just top it off from time to time. A charge can with a gauge is best. Not...

    74, Sniper EFI, Dual Tanks

    I don't know what your selector valve configuration is, but it is either not designed to isolate the tanks or it is plumbed wrong. So the rear tank running is pushing fuel through the valve and back into the front tank.

    Tailgate Woes

    Is it just a rattle, resonate harmonics? The plug for the tailgate wiring is like behind or under the driver's side tail light. Unplug that if the noise stops it is electric, if it doesn't then it is just vibration.

    locktite

    I almost never use locktite anymore. Usually use antisiize, coat the entire length of the bolt. If you plan on keep it then it is the best option.
