Thanks guys... Paid 800$ for it and It seems to run good. I drove it from Hemet to Dana point with no overdrive and it didn't skip a beat.... Gonna start ripping out the motor this weekend

Ok so I worked on the bronco today and I think I can just get away with pulling the heads and rebuilding them...

There isn't any coolant in the oil and I did a compression check and all the cylinders are ~160psi. The motor turns over freely with all the plugs out...

I guess I'll know more once I pull the heads but I think the motor is gonna be fine...

Nice! Seriously, people can say what they want about these motors but I thought I blew the whole motor in my 96 like 3 times and every time it ended up being something relatively small and fixable.

Glad to hear it though, Minty gets more action shots than any running Bronco I can think of ha ha... If it wasn't for you guys it would just be Broncos on jack stands lol

I'm hoping to have the good motor pulled out of the haggard bronco and set in mine tomorrow and then spend all day wednesday hooking up and dialing it all in
