    It was an easy job. I have done several before where I have made it difficult on myself.
    I cut the old brake line at the fuel filter location. Fished the brake line from fuel filter forward out from under the truck.
    I cleaned it up and used a chop saw to square the line up and a bench wire wheel to deburr it.
    Line nut went on and I use the clam shell style flare tool.

    This style when used properly has made flaring brake lines enjoying for me!

    I reinstalled back in the explorer and added a flared union.

    From there ran the new line back to rear brake hose. I fished it up high with the fuel lines to make it last longer this time.
    Bled the brakes with a 2x4 wedged between the brake pedal and the seat!

    You made that sound way to easy! lol

    Is that a double flare or single flare? I have been told by people who say a single works better than a double, and others say never do a single. Then the brake shops say they do a special type of flare. I just want a flare that doesn't leak!!!

    My dad taught me to always do a double flare. Double flare has always been leak free for me. Never tried any other way.

    I have friends who single flare with no issues that I am aware of.

    Thank you!

    I redid my antiwrap bar

    My goal was to make it stronger and lighter. It feels lighter but I failed to weigh it to see if it was a success. I also skinned the bottom with a piece of .083 wall chromoly

    I swapped in a computer from a manual transmission 1994 explorer sport.

    Here is the factory automatic computer
    20190408_160508.jpg

    This is the new one in its place 20190408_160524.jpg

    I did this to see if there would be any noticeable difference between the auto and manual computer in my stick shift converted explorer.

    If there is a difference, it is so minute that I can't notice.

    Tore the Harbor Freight winch apart to seal and regrease. Off brand grease in and off brand winch made sense to me!

    Here is what the automatic brake looks like.

    20190815_002410.jpg

    My old lady's explorer with black grille and bezels. Installed clear turnsignals and markers from ebay.

    Purchased this for $300. 1994 model. I believe a vacuum modulator valve will fix the shifting to second issue it has. There is transmission fluid in the vacuum lines.

    I guess the next step will be to put a 2x2 piece of steel in place. Not really sure. Spend more time looking at it than actually doing anything trying to get some sort of plan together


    Then I have a voice in my head telling me to put a ranger cab on it.

    I also want to build a gantry crane and have the metal to do so. Then I could pull the body and give the frame some love.

    Also bought this so I have superduty axles to look at every day. The price was too good to pass up and the dude delivered it to me.

    Yikes! Time for some (bunch) frame Plate. That does indeed look like a body off repair to me.

    Might as well trade that SD in towards a set of 2.5T Rockwells, and just get it over with.

    :D
