I'm not current on these BII's...haven't had to work on the transmission in any of mine in a while. The 2WD BII had a dummy transfer case, but was a different tranny if I recall. The 2WD tranny would fit the 4WD BII, but not the other way around. (something about a top cover trans vs a bottom cover trans that identified them)
.
maybe someone with recent experience will post better info soon. :)

J...old & tired

the 1990 bronco ii was the only year to use a true 2wd tranny , instead of the dummy transfer case set up. that is why im having so much trouble finding parts ,because it doest interchange with earlier models

Drill and tap the output shaft of the replacement trans... I know, easier said then done.
