1985 Ford Bronco 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 67000 miles
Ok I have an 1985 Ford Bronco 2 that we have been working on getting the fuel lines and everything put back into good shape. The engine has been replaced and has only 67,000 miles on, the carb is only 2 1/2 months old, plugs, wires, distributor, fuel filters all new. The previous owner used to take the truck to the sand dunes so there was a lot of gunk in the tank and as a result we did drop the tank and cleaned it out. We also, 1 week later replaced all the fuel filters.
Well even after all of this there is a problem and we are stumped as to where to look to figure it out since it can be several things. Once the engine is up to running temp it will sputter and then die. Once it has died it is very difficult to start it again, it will just crank and crank and may or may not finally turn over. I do not want to put anymore money into it unless I know it is the fix. I followed the fuel line down to the fuel pump and did find a part right next to the pump that has electrical wiring that goes to the relay but we dont know what that thing is. It has cloth covering on the wires however where the wires plug into the device it is nearly bare wire but I do not know that this would be the source of any of the problem.
Thank you for your help
