SOURCE: where can i find the fuel pump on a 1984 bronco 2

This is a tough job and not easy task, If I had to do it again, I would pay someone to do it, again if you save big buck on labors this will be the way to go. there are 2 electric fuel pumps( 1 is external) on some bronco II(89 v-6 2.9). one is in the tank and the other is located on the chassis on the driver side, near the front fender on the inside area of the chassis. Longer answer, with opinion
I would suggest extreme caution whenever messing with fuel tanks, and never do this indoors. The risk of explosion is high when you open a fuel tank. 1989 and up only have a single fuel pump, in the tank. You have to remove the tank, and rotate the lock ring on the fuel pump port, lift out the pump assembly. Easily said, much harder done (I procrastinated a year before doing it). First, if it died, you may have a fair amount of gas in the tank which needs to be removed, otherwise the weight is unmanageable and increases the risk of a spill. Best to remove as much gas as possible. If you have the Eddie Bauer model, you also have to remove the skid shield (2 bolts each, front and back); the rear ones can be nasty, as they're tucked under the bumper (mine was smashed in). The biggest pain is getting the hoses and wiring off the tank before dropping it; there isn't enough slack, and not much room to reach in. If you've never dealt with newer high pressure fuel lines before, you may need to acquire the tool set for those. Filler hose is disconnected at the tank neck end, then the tank is partially lowered by loosening the straps. Fuel lines (out and return) disconnected, pump/sensor cable unplugged, vent hose disconnected, then tank removal continued. good luck!

SOURCE: fuel gauge does not register and I have replaced

Did you check to make sur you have voltage at the sensor? Before you changed out the sensor did you run a wire from one post to the other post on the connector?
doing this will make your gas gauge go to full,unless the gauge is defective

How to fix the timing on the distributor in a 1984 bronco 2?

I doubt its the timing.
What you describe sounds more like a lack of fuel problem.
Fuel pressure, throttle position sensor, or something else.
To actually check the timing you put the ignition in test mode and use a timing light on #1 cylinder.

How to replace fuel gauge on 1984 Grand Marquis

Are you sure its not the fuel sending unit and not the fuel gauge itself.Because the sending unit controls the fuel gauge level and if the float gets stuck then the fuel gauge will not work.

I have a 1984 Ford Bronco with a carb. The carb is not getting any gas to it... I think it may be the fuel pump but not sure... It has a 351 HO. Is there a fuel pump in the tank that needs to be replaced...

You have a external fuel pump even if you have 2 fuel tank you are equipt with one pump. Its location is underneath the driver side along the framecansmo_183.gif

What is the firing order for a 1984 ford bronco 2

Now you need to know which cylinder is which. If you stand at the front of the truck looking at the engine, the number 1 cylinder is on the left closest to you. The left bank has cylinders 1-3-5 and the right bank has 2-4-6. So number 1 is at the left front and number 6 is at the right rear.

1984 bronco 2-runs 15 min shuts down wont start again for 20 runs

If the fuel filter is dirty it will settle when you turn the truck off. When it runs for a few minutes the debris in the filter will get sucked into the screen and stop the fuel from getting through. If it was a starter or coil, it would not start at all.
