About a month ago I purchased my C350 Centurion Bronco (this one) (http://www.fourdoorbronco.com/board/showthread.php?9226-1994-Ford-F-350-4x4-Centurian-6500-(Fall-City)-found-on-Seattle-Craigslist-ad) and have been tinkering with it since. It sports a 460/E4OD/manual shift tcase.

I've always had a fascination with these things. While working out of country, I was browsing craigslist and stumbled upon this guy. why I was on seattle craiglist is now a mystery to me. I had been wanting an OBS f250 or F350 to meet the towing wants that the little SCSB 4.9 truck isn't meeting. Got ahold of the guy the first or second day it was posted on craigslist and and after a little back and forth we started the motions of getting it bought. That proved difficult while working in Brazil, truck being in Seattle, and living in Michigan. First rodeo like that. To shorten the boring part of the story up, I had it shipped and it arrived the day after I got home from the 5 week work trip. All was good with the world.

Here it is on day one:

We figured we'd put a few tanks of gas through it and then start on the roof repairs. Here we are 6 weeks later and we've put about 2,500 miles on it. It's been across the Upper peninsula twice to the LOORS and plan to take it to the races for Crandon's 50th.

From there, we plan stab it into the garage and start on the roof repair and the few other body issues over the winter. It is a very clean truck other than the roof seam and a few layers of paint. Roof doesn't leak right now, so i'm optimistic, but preparing for the worst.

Not really ever going to be an offroader, but will hopefully be towing the jeep(s) and whatnot around before too long. :thumb:

The first change was to fix the tan center seat that was stuck in the up position and had no cup holders! LAME! I happened to have a 2015 F150 center console (planned to use on another truck before impulse buying the centurion) so it got mounted up to the conveniently placed center seat mounts. That grey panel drives me nuts, so it'll turn tan when I ditch the BMW seats.

The PO mentioned that the trans shifted hard. boy was he right. Often times it wouldn't even downshift into 2nd or 1st, forcing manual shifts. Often threw trans codes indicating the solenoid pack wiring to be at fault. tore into it one evening and found the harness to already be replaced.....with crimped on bullet connectors. cleaned everything up with solder and adhesive heat shrink and now it shifts consistently, albeit still harder than I'd like.

While I was under there, i cut the 3D printer loose and whipped up a switch mount to fit a Torque Converter Override switch. Down is computer controlled, Center is Forced Unlock, and up is Forced Lock. Forced lock is nice on all the two-lane highway roadtrips across the yoop. Forced Unlocked is nice around town as it keeps the confused torque converter out of the equation at lower speeds. Ultimately makes no difference unless you're really paying attention to how the torque converter acts. Still pull a whopping 10-11mpg. While I was in there, I replaced some worn switches and found some good work by centurion mounting the bullnose bronco switch in the areonose dash.

The first drive across US2 at night was pretty terrible. The headlights were aimed way too low and the light output was lackluster. Couple that with rain near escanaba made for a fun few miles.

I had been wanting an excuse to HID projector swap something for quite a while, and this was as good a reason as any. Ordered up a set of ebay housings and amazon projectors and got to work. The swap was extremely simple and only took a couple evenings. The light output with decent HID bulbs and ballasts is incredible. The low beam cutoff is really nice too. All much better than just stabbing LED bulbs in and blinding everyone on the road.

pay no attention to the constant CEL. We're workin' on it.

This next bit is not nearly as fun. I replaced the muffler and rusty/holey/about-to-fall-apart tailpipe, which apparently the passenger exhaust manifold didn't like. Started leaking terribly at the rear port against the head right before the trip to Bark River International Raceway. That was top of the list on sunday. Read up on it and found that it's a common problem for the 460.

WEEEEEELLLLLLL, now the head has to come off. so much for that one sunday afternoon project. Grabbing a gasket set on the way home today. I am lucky enough to have my ford enthusiast grandfather who had a set of EFI 460 heads and manifolds sitting on a shelf right next to the window motors I needed for the back doors. grabbed them on a whim on Saturday. Sure glad I did!

Was reallllly tempted to order a new cam while I already had the top of the motor apart, but I am trying not to sink a whole lot of money into this drivetrain because.....reasons. That and we leave for Crandon next tuesday.

updates on that nonsense to come.

Motor back together. Surprising amount of space to heave a head out. Ended up just cutting my losses and swapping heads out once i put a straight edge to the old one and found the surface not flat. fresh gaskets, replaced head, replaced exhaust manifold... no leaks.

Runs great now with about 12 fewer vacuum leaks. little caps everywhere on the intake were falling apart.

Now we're on to the rear door power windows. After replacing all the switches, we got power back there, but still no action. pulled the motors out and both tested bad. pulled one apart, cleaned up the goop, and got it spinning, but bearings were still too tight and rusted. The extra motors I had on hand ended up not being the right pieces, so replacements on order. Got the windows moving freely at least. Apparently they haven't moved in quite some time.

also: holy guacamole sound deadening material. this stuff is everywhere on the truck. feels like I took off 5lb/door just to open up the spots to get the motors in and out.

The sound deadening sure makes for a satisfying thud when you close a door!

Se we had ourselves A great ol' time at crandon. Towed a wicked heavy 70's era camper to the track, loaded full of people for the trail ride (even made it on the big screen), poured all the trans fluid onto the highway in the bumper to bumper traffic heading back from the parade, and made it all the way home!

here's the video they played a few times featuring Bernie: Sorry, It's just on Facebook.
https://m.facebook.com/watch/?v=405544093429528&_rdr


some deets on the trans debacle. Well, I figured out that a steady pulse on the throttle could get the front end bobbing much to the delight of the back seat booze cruisers. over the course of about 30 seconds we went from "something smells hot," "sucks for wherever that smoke is coming from," "smells like trans fluid," and finally from the guy behind us, "HEY! You just poured all your trans fluid out" SHIIIIIIIT.

We got a tow back to the pits, poured enough trans fluid into the sad E4OD to back it up onto the race truck's trailer and waited for it to cool. we couldn't find anywhere other than the bellhousing where the fluid would have come from, so in between race things, we started to pull the trans. Come to find out Northern Wisconsin isnt the best place to find a 20-some year old transmission input seal. Luckily, we had another teammate coming up from Green Bay that was able to find a new input seal and a full load of ATF. It was a bit frantic the whole time. Huge shoutout to the guys working tirelessly to get us back to Michigan.

only picture I took of the process: thanks AMil!

Sunday morning, we filled 'er up with fluid, took it for a couple mile test spin, and hooked right up to the 8k lb trailer. not a hiccup all the way home. stupid bouncy-bouncy, heaty-heaty. Live and learn i guess.

Amid all the problems with this 460 E4OD combination, a thing came home with me last weekend.

1997 (obd2) 7.3 PSD E4OD. Don't worry, we already have a plan to remedy the presence of that automatic trans. (even though it DOES shift absolutely wonderful) more to come when that plan becomes a reality.

I'll be pulling the drivetrain out of the F250 soonish and will be freshening/waking up the ol Powerstroke, as time and more important projects allow, before stabbing it in the bronco. Looking forward to getting a set of OEM wheels on it too.

Well, it's been a hot minute since i've updated anything here and boy have there been some changes!

First off, we had our first kid in January, so that's been quite a change to the garage time! I'm very lucky to have an awesome wife who is understanding of my vehicular shenanigans and shares some in the enthusiasm.

as for the truck stuff, The black 97 PSD was rolled into the garage for drivetrain removal mid Feb:
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3exdu2CGKoRMcIqYpPuRHeeXQ0Kq-8OWhm0nRaTcM7j5i2T0ltvmzmUaD7CLareabwgxbxzfJmmCxYT nGERDz_AoNRlGkpJr-0yS4vJX_WvUD4--74VqTmf67XKD2RT9dwNSIL6Guu5ChlewNbylcErJw

...and made a huge mess, but it's all out! again, 97 (obd2) powerstroke and E4OD.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3cBX0ea9HJJ9OO9CbDQsV8IKaGLsVjtCYbrE7kHcv6RNKuXcs-cLgcGOvy7QgULrJdHvcuMS56x2ciptbW2e2Io18IyzMNozGtDF bIxAYvgVzXCd1QxJV2oFhA4pAfgMzul3QxhqNvAAmKUfvc8lSr joQ

then the big white whale was brought in for a trans swap and some wiring clean up. worked out that I cleaned up a bunch of the previous owner wiring debacle and i could swap out the transmissions to get the ZF5!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3fB7kFIzAvsjhxGDpr3EgP0LWkjxH68-aJOZfhttQ8ajdoOkBOefttDgblH3FGHIUXQO1dpNgnUO8Joc2d 2EINtCJIURVqOaEJ5coXQSZmN0HV5nPB4m7m95YYLT6MYXft_t XCFhdUPbC7bCivTSMILtg

While that was going on, I had loaned out my F150 to a buddy. it decided to let a wheel bearing loose and it was left in the upper peninsula. Going to get Clifford would be the Bernie's last trip out with big block power. Unfortunately it was during salt season. I wasn't amused.

With the big white whale out of the building, attention was finally shifted to the star of the show. Tear down was easy since we had already pulled the trans a few months prior. Garage has reached full disaster area status at this point.

then etched, primed, and painted all the bits that'd be tough to get at with the motor in it's home

The Powerstroke was then dropped into place as easy as could be. The only holes i had to drill were for the rivnuts used to mount the heat shield on the firewall.

I had decided right off the bat that I was going to swap out the fuel system. Out came the stock fuel bowl and mechanical pump and the new stuff started. The lines from the stock mechanical pump were cut close to the banjo fitting, then flared for #4 37°JIC and adjusted slightly to attach to a JIC Tee. the Tee was adapted to a #6 AN hose and routed to the stock feed line which had also been flared to #6 JIC.

for return lines, the front port fittings were removed and adapted to the same AN hose and up to the regulator. I first tried to cheap out and use an amazon regulator, but that bit me. Ended up having to buy an Aeromotive regulator anyway. Their customer service is great and I won't hesitate to order from them again because of it.

Under the truck, I mounted up my filter and pump setup and plumbed it into some combination fo the 460 fuel lines and the powerstroke fuel lines. A pre filter/water separator to a stock super duty pump, to a finer post-filter. loosely fitted up here, I swear it is not as cockeyed as it looks in real life. :P

Then we get to drop the tank! Luckily i thought to drain it out as much as possible when it was easy to run the stock gasser fuel pump. big tank came right out, fuel pump removed, and the diesel pickup tube went right on. slap it back up and away we go!

With the engine mounted and fuel system figured out, I changed gears a little bit to tackle the wiring and dash changes. I had full diagrams for both the obd1 460 and the obd2 7.3, but i wasn't sure exactly what would need to be changed. was hoping for a minimally invasive swap over.

Then I popped the kick panels off.....

Thank you installer of 90s alarm system. Holy Toledo. At this point it was easier to just pull the dash out of both trucks and make the best of both. they come out surprisingly easy and made swapping the pedal assembly worlds easier.

the parts truck ended up having the better dash structure, so all i had to do there was swap the grey skin out for the tan and slap it in there. Was able to get the Remote Keyless Entry to work too. $12 ebay fobs and it works mint!

More wiring sadness getting the RKE working. had to reconfigure a few things because crew cab, but it's all good now!

No pictures of the resinstalled setup, but suffice it to say that it's better than it was and looks like a standard obs ford dash now. whew. Also sold the grey seats/console and picked up an entire black/tan 3 row setup from an expedition.

Figured I should get the core support and mounting squared away before firing ut up. Was loking around and found Jeff's Bronco Graveyard had new core supports to fit the diesel rad. But I figured I would try to save a buck. Worse case scenario, i waste some time and i buy a new one anyway.

the 460 support was good, but the parts truck's was trash at the mounts. Center section was good though! Cut that out:

Made Similar cuts ont the Bronco's clean support, lined up a couple holes I split when cutting, and welded it up with the help of a couple pieces i designed and had cut out

some wire wheeling, some prep, and some paint should ready it for plenty long.

all this work was pretty much just because the powerstroke radiator is bigger than the 460.
460 front, OBS 7.3 PSD middle, Super Duty 7.3 PSD rear. significant size difference.

Started slapping the front end back together here. figured i would do some preliminary cutting for the super duty intercooler now to make that phase easier in the future. Of course it'll land right in where my add on piece ended up. :facepalm:

No matter. it'll be ready for when the stock drivetrain is proven and fun things start coming.

Somewhere around that timeframe it started to look like a truck again! A truck that realy needs paint...

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3cMT_kcDWkrd3QgtYTNm1XozpWrY3Nvef9WU55-DxRepalm_a5gstK12OIibMYO2hyo4PqyvKan28MGvmJWuXBbWZ ZCzG8I-0p4WabDK1WCrDNuBFID3PoD2nwrFrtUOoCBTtwEURXgg5VqMkD RZnrygg

After noticing the parts truck had factory keyless entry, I embarked on that wiring nightmare. turns out adapting 2 door door harnesses to four door is quite a project. Thank gooodness for wiring schematics.

On an impulse, I decided to try out a double Din Android based radio so i could interface the new fangled OBD2 system and run Torque Pro through the radio. Eventually, I'll use an arduino to add some more I/O to the system like EGT, LP Oil, and Coolant Temp.

I sold the grey f150 seats and console and replaced with a tan F150 console and Black/Tan Expedition seats. Heated/cooled full power on both sides. few wires under there: oofta I've since found out that the heating and cooling is controlled over CAN bus, further adding to the complexity of the gdang thing.

I have a circuit breaker under the hood for feeding a 12 circuit fuse panel in the center console for the (at least) 6 circuits requiring power for the seats, future heated/cooled cupholders, console power point, etc.

Mounted up a set of retreads on stock wheels:

With only two front seats and one seat belt, I start putting some miles on it. The added weight up front amplifies the need for front end rebuild, so it gets the works. rear brakes too since the parking brake was lacking. 100ish miles of driving, pecking things off the list and disaster strikes.

All the day before we were about to roadtrip it 12 hours to Minnesota for the COR Races.

So here we started looking for a replacement trans. Man, not as plentiful as they used to be! After a couple weeks I had a buddy pick up a core with a good case for way too much money. the internet gave me enough confidence to pull both of them apart and swap my good internals into the good case.

As it turns out, the ZF S5 family is pretty simple to tear apart. We'll keep the busted tailhousing for the wall of shame. might have er welded up someday for emergencies. :P

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3c4lGBqBm6XMaBpOLZQhEtiha2sqtygQY2dKubL6gdR0s2zSvf CiFVWT9O2zF9NIZgxXRWvPhCTsRUJWoCmVsxQyEVuhy29J9-VTnwmWRSfLqqWiWABRThgFlkUkstR3eOv1Co0T7B7T9FIybpoK pUCaQ

so after about a month of down time the replacement trans was cleaned up, guts swapped and measured, and ready to go back in. Figured I'd toss some FAST PTO cover coolers on there to add a couple quarts of capacity and whipped up a quick brace to tie the Tcase mount face to the trans mount a little better. I was a little gunshy about busting another tailhousing at this point.
