Looking good Mike. Are you gonna put auxilaryy light behind the grill or on the bumper? Thanks for the payment Mike. I got it today. Hope everything works good for you.
Already have auxiliary switch panel installed. Put it where the radio was to go. Will post a picture in a bit. Right now only one light is connected to it the dome light, and will add additional lighting to the rear of the Bronco too, and a bright set of backup/work lights

I was gonna hook my back up lights to a toggle switch and my friend kept telling me it won,t pass inspection (I had a answer for him ) and to keep him calm started running down the problem with the OEM. DAMN NEW SWITCH IS BAD. I should throw it at my friend--when he comes up. He,s a church goer and I,m not. We had that discussion before. The funny part when we go to the junk yard--he gets all the ticks on him and I don,t get any. I told him he was a TICK MAGNET and I am a CHICK MAGNET-HAHA- Still might have to use a switch like you. If I can find a USED OR ORIGINAL SENDING UNIT--as I have everything taken apart.

Mike, could you show us some pictures? I found something this morning alot better then the cheap plastic switch holders people put under their dash. Get these curtain rod holders you get a Lowes,Walmart,Home depot. They are metal and some just nees a little filing to let these switches fit .

Here are the pictures as promised of the light switch panel, the engineer had butchered the dash stuffing a radio in it, so I put a light switch panel. These are marine rated so hopefully they will be water resistant

Have the brackets welded and the bumper painted with bedliner, went a head and mounted it to the Bronco. Still have more modifications to come, this will do for now. Ok put the grill back in for now

Yo Johnny,
To purchase such hoses go to Classifieds section, Parts For Sale & Wanted
To ask questions about them go to to Technical Support section and ask in appropriate year range.

I hear you. I have been having (still) trouble with the carb. So today I thought I would check the NEW Mr Gasket fuel gauge and fuel pressure gauge. I put it on 5 lbs --just a trikle of gas--I took it off and no improvemen. So I took the gauge off.No improvement. The I buy passed the big fuel filter--it shot out about 4 times and quit. Dead fuel pump--a NEW CARTER. So I,m thinking .Maybe all thos gadgets out too much back pressure on the pump and killed the pump. Tomorrow I,m gonna put the OLD PUMP BACK ON AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. iF THE WEATHER PERMITS.GOOD LUCK NOTTA
Took the NEW-JUNK MR GASKET PRESSURE REGULATOR OFF and I had my cousin to rebuild the carb and IT IS NOT LEAKING SO FAR.
