    1987 Ford Bronco Dana 35 Swap

    Love the 4.0 and 5 speed in mine! Thinking of the axle swap, as I still have the Explorer that gave up it's engine.

    Cab swap 2nd gen to 1st gen frame

    Are you going to use an OHC, or SOHC 4.0? The SOHC will fit, as will a 5R55E transmission, but all of the associated wiring will need to be transferred. I believe the body will bolt to the first Gen frame. Here is one of the threads on it...

    Buying ECM's off eBay

    I've had good luck so far, and bought a '94 manual one for the 4.0 conversion in my Bronco 2. The ECM number you need to find will be either a F47Z-12A650-KB, or F47F-12A650-KB. Those are for federal emissions, 4.0 5 speed. I look for some of the wrecking yards that sell on EBAY, at least they...

    motorcraft 2150A port - 84 BII

    Temperature Compensated Pump, originally had a vacuum hose with a blue stripe that went to a solenoid like this- as to where the rest go, there should have been a decal under the hood with the vacuum hose routing.

    Thanks for allowing me to join. Hoping to learn about wiring needs for 96 4.0 engine swap into 87 BII

    An OBD 1 would have been easier, but I swapped a 4.0 SOHC and 5R55E into a '94 Explorer. You will need the harness, ECM, and under hood fuse box. I used the Ford EVTM (wiring diagram) books for both the '94, and in my case, '97 Explorers. I found them on Ebay. I recently replaced the 2.9 and...

    For all you M5OD swappers. . .

    I sort of did this in my Bronco 2, installed a 1994 4.0 from an Explorer parts rig I have, that had a bad A4LD, bought a M5OD, and converted it. I used a ECM from a 1994 Explorer with a M5OD, Part #s F47F-12A650-KB or F47Z-12A650-KB, with Federal emissions. If you need a CA emission one, look...

    4.0 swap Simplify harness

    A/C is charged and working, Cruise control adjusted and working, all the '86 gauges and tachometer working just fine with the 4.0. Love it!

    4.0 swap Simplify harness

    finished a 4.0 swap in my '86 Bronco 2, used a '94 donor, and converted from an A4ld in the Bronco, to a 5 speed. I also have the wiring books for both, the '86 one was about useless. Too many wire colors that didn't match the book. Having been a dealer mechanic when these were new, made this...

    Ghosttrain2's '86 Bronco 2

    I have been taking this on short trips, had a check engine light that finally became more than intermittent. It was the DPFE sensor for the EGR. Found out that these were upgraded by Ford, so now it has the new style one, and no more Check engine light. Still can't believe how much better this...

    Ghosttrain2's '86 Bronco 2

    Finally got the exhaust done, dropped down off of the jack stands, and put the hood on, and took it out for a short drive. The extra power is great! The transmission shifts smooth, Still waiting for the shift boots for the transmission and transfercase.

    Finally received the new battery cables, and got them installed.After checking for draws, started powering up circuits. Cranked the engine over, to bleed the air out of the power steering... Turned the key on, and it fired right up! And, no check engine light, as it went off after starting...

    The to do list is getting shorter...waiting on some more parts, installed the A/C hoses, cruise control, transfer case shifter, transmission shifter, and finished taping up the wiring today.

    Ghosttrain2's '86 Bronco 2

    Managed to get the A/C box back in, tied up the wiring on the passenger side, and installed the air cleaner. The A/C box(at least the engine compartment side) are from the donor Explorer. The high blower relay, in the power distribution box is now wired in as well.

    Had to replace the fuse box on this... it seems that any of the connectors that are the white plastic are now very brittle, including the fuse box. Replacement-

    Ghosttrain2's '86 Bronco 2

    I took the hvac box out with the engine in, going back together the same way. Bundled the "extra" wiring into groups, for possible use later. Modified the automatic engine plate, to use it with the manual transmission. I "windowed" the plate where it was rubbing. New flywheel, and clutch installed.

    Ghosttrain2's '86 Bronco 2

    Have most of the wiring done, reinstalled the dash, have the fuel lines replaced for the 4.0, going through the rest of the circuits. Had to run the wires from the speed sensor to the ECM, figured out the A/C power, and cruise control. Almost ready to install the engine.

    Pulled the heater boxes today, the ECM, and engine harness. Going to replace the heater core, A/C Evaporator, and reseal the heater box.

    Ghosttrain2's '86 Bronco 2

    Thanks for the heads up on the clutch, but having already purchased a clutch kit and new flywheel, l'm already committed to what I have. I am also replacing the heater core, and evaporator, and with the A/C box out of the way, the engine compartment is much roomier.
