In the process of extricating myself from the crash mentioned previously, the oil pump in the transfer case came free and did some internal damage. Whether that was a direct result of the stress on the drive train or a coincidence, I don’t know. After two months motionless, the Bronco is mobile once more. The transfer case is repaired and appears to operating in fine fashion. Also, the grill is repaired and the new headlight is installed. There are still a few minor items to take care of: 1)
more fluid in transfer case 2) vent hose for transfer case 3) align new headlight 4) cosmetic work on grill 5) new tire 6) clean and mount skid plate.
The finish line is in sight.
