88 Bronco 2 4x4 2.9L has air in the hydraulic clutch line. I have been pumping the pedal and bleeding it for hours, including cracking the bleed screw with the pedal depressed. nothing seems to work.

Try to find where the air is entering the clutch line. When you bleed the cylinder you cannot drain the reservoir completely when bleeding. If you do then you'll only pump more air into the system.

I have an 1988 ford bronco 2 automatic V6 i pulled

There are shift solenoids in the transmission and apparently there's a problem them. I would get it to a trany shop and have it checked right away. If you continue to drive it you will ruin the transmission. Are sure you put the right computer in the vehicle? If you put a computer from a Bronco II with a manual trans in a vehicle with an automatic trans, the trans won't work right.

How to replace the front brake hose on an 84 ford

should be a bolt where the hose enters the front caliper. just unhook and replace with new one. Be forewarned. When you change out the lines, you need to bleed the brakes as well.

Brake light nad rear anti lock light wont go off

Check the fluid level, top it off if needed, look for a fill to line on the side of the reservoir. Check rear brake shoes/pads, are they too worn? Replace with new ones. Bleed all 4 wheels, starting with the farthest one, then go to next farthest, and so on. Look for leaks inside the rear wheels. Adjust rear brakes (if shoes not pads).

Clutch problems

It has been a long time since I saw one of these of this age, but I am fairly sure it is a hydraulic unit. They consist of a master cylinder on the firewall and a slave inside the bell housing. There is an access hole on the bottom of the bell housing. You can see movement of the throw out bearing on the pressure plate from it. I would verify that the system has fluid in it (small canister mounted to the side of the left fender by hood hinge). If so, check for movement on the ctuch plate as someone moves clutch pedal.

It could be the clutch assy being bad or the hydaulic system. Regardless, it you go through the work of changing the clutch, change the slave cylinder. It really sucks to take a chance and them have to pull it all over again to change the slave the 2nd time around. They bleed just like a brake system only they are more difficult to get working just right. Bleed, bleed, bleed!
