Default Raptor's Bronco Build Log Thread

So over the weekend I went over to Reno Nevada and picked up from my uncle a 1985 Ford Bronco. Took a while to get it running right but it made it 200 miles just fine. Currently I'm working on attempting to get it past the CA smog nazis and running into a couple of issues. Basically my preheater hose is missing and I'm looking at my manifold and seeing that theres nowhere that it looks like it attaches to. Id actually really appreciate Kenny's help with this as he has 300s of the same vintage. I'm finding I'm in over my head with the carburetor stuff but I'm figuring it out. Hopefully all of the other systems (EGR, PCV, and evap) work correctly. Other than that the truck runs good, but its got a long way to go to be where I want it.



Kenny: I'd love if I could get some pictures of where the preheater hose attaches to the downpipe, would be much appreciated.

Going to repaint my headlight bezels along with the grille this weekend. Going to look for newer emblems as well as a radio in the yard. Going to pull codes tomorrow as well as replace my tailgate window motor if it decides to quit raining...
