The Powerstop Pads are great after the bed in process. The Drums were from O'reilly. I've never had a heat issue with my brakes so I don't know how they warped. Oh well all better now.Yo Skitter,
Too bad about the Power...
I use Motorcraft brake parts since we purchased our 96 New.
Sorry to hear about your bad luck. Hope soon everything improves for you.Haven't posted in a bit since its hard to type with a wrench in one hand, and grease on the fingers. I've noticed that computers don't care for that stuff too much.
A bit has happen'd and most of my activity has been posted to my instagram but I'd figure I post up here with some details.
I took some time off work and got the Centurion clean'd. Was a nice break from the norm and I had a good time attending the multiple car shows that happen in my town. People would come up to me a ask how I built a four door Bronco in my backyard... Was exciting to show them the door sticker to show it was a conversion vehicle. Even many of the OBS guys that were at the Friday night cruise didn't know what I was driving.

Shortly after show week I took a weekend where me and Dad went to Boise on a less then perfect road trip. The 460 Engine lost oil pressure twice on the way down and when I drained 9qts of oil it was full of brass color'd flakes. Some fresh oil and a bottle of Lucas got me home but its still not like it was. Also found out the my new windshield leaks and so do the "c" pillars Gunna park it for the winter so I can pull the interior apart later.

So I'm a little bummed out about the water leaks and the engine troubles and A few Days later BAM I get a call from a Family member borrowing the '84 Crew Cab that its over heated 20min out of town. I arrive to find the truck still hot with a pool coolant and oil under the truck. Called AAA and had it tow'd home. After work the next day I took a closer look at the damage and its bad. Pass side head gasket is gone and alot of gaskets got melted. Engine runs cold but doesn't like warming up to operating temp. So now in less then a week I have 2 unrunable 460 Motors.

Time to roll out the parts Bronco and get it up to daily driver status. This Blue Bronco was something I bought and pulled the tailgate wiring out of to fix the Centurion. I just havn't got around to selling it. Trans fluid was more brown then what I like to see so I went and got some fresh fluid for the trans. Along with that I did an oil change, flushed the t-case, topped off the front and rear diffs, fixed the dash lights witha new head light switch, and fixed multiple odds and ends. I've got some new tires on order too.

Well I guess we all look forward and fix what we can. I noticed alot of my troubles has been caused by China junk. I tried Friday to get a made in U.S.A Ford made light switch from Green Sales Company. They told me they hadn,t any for about 2 years. I have a China made and decided to try it--its junk. They must not know what quality control is.lol since this post the transmission has crapped out.
I'll fix it up right in 2022.
