I'm back...

I just can't resist white 90s lifted Fords, so here is my fourth white 1st Gen.

I really won't be doing too much to this thing, besides a few personal touches here and there. I bought it to use it.
It was running a little rough, so I gave it a tune up.

What I've done so far:
Plugs and wires
Fuel filter - the gas is bad, since it was sitting so long
Oil and filter
Serpentine belt
Fixed a few vacuum lines

Plans for the near future:
Polish wheels
Paint bumpers and sliders so they match. I'm thinking flat tan instead of my usual ultra flat black.
Stiffer shocks all around. Rancho 3000s are too soft, even 2 per tire.

My first was a 92 XLT.

The second was a 92 Eddie built by board member @Felix

Enjoy her. Zukman was happy to see her go to a good home and stay in the family. Zukmam would have been proud.

Very happy to have another rig to share the experiences with the family.

I'm glad to hear that.
I was thinking (if it's alright with you and your dad) of getting a small memorial sticker for her and putting in on there somewhere.

Thanks Jamie. I do plan to keep this one, and make a lot of memories with it. It will be the vehicle my son (9yrs old) learns to drive in. He has already been driving the van sitting on my lap for a couple of years. He usually takes over as soon as we hit the dirt. He'll learn to wheel in it, maybe eventually take it to camp with buddies...?

It’s still a little rough, but there is some bad gas in there. I'm hoping it will get a bit smoother once the stabilizer and 91 octane I put runs through it.

That's the plan. I thought I had some brakleen but couldn't find it. I'll get some tomorrow and see if that will help. There may still be some bad vacuum lines, too. I connected alI could find, but with the age of the rig, some of them could be dried and cracked.

MAF cleaned with no change. Got some fuel stabilizer in it and after I smog it (this week) I’ll get some 91 octane in there to mix it up.
