I would wire up a relay between the battery and the choke solenoid. Fuse the choke separately in the engine compartment. You could run the relay coil off the same washer wire as before, but this way the washer fuse wouldn't have to source current to the choke. i have a 1979 bronco with a 351w engine im tyring  - 25315115-wng3opgl1pug32fsc4t4fc4i-3-0.jpg

We have a 1979 bronco with a 460 put into it... i am willing to take any suggestions b/c im at my wits end, went through countless solinoids, an alternator and a starter,and still the truck does not...

several possibilities. 1) Take you battery to your local auto parts place and have it checked. 2) make sure that there is no corrosion on the battery terminals. 3) place a volt meter on the battery while it is running. If it is 13.6V to 14.3V that it is charging. If it is lower, than the voltage regulator (should be on the firewall or fender) is probably defective. 4) check the wiring between the voltage regulator and the battery. Good luck!

I have a 91 bronco w/ a 351w. I need to replace the ignition control module. Do I need to pull the distributor? If so, is there anything special I need to do as far as putting the distributor back in?

the ignition control modual is not in the ditributor but either atatched to the side of the distributor or located on the firewall/fender well.removing the distributor is not nessisary.

Take your Bronco to an Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan. Offhand a new ignition switch would seem like a good idea, because the fuelpump should not be working in the ACC position.
If a new ignition switch does not help the fuelpump problem the pump is wired to an accessory. You need to look up the fuse info in an owners manual.

Took the efi 5.0 out my 89 bronco and installed a 351w carburated out a 84 bronco.wiring in the 84 was screwed.replaced the distributor with a points distributor and coil and no matter how i wire it it...

I dont know what "points distributor" you installed or how you made sure you installed it correctly. But a more simple way would be to get a distributor that has the coil pack built in. That kind only would require 2 wire connection. Positive 12 v and ground. also it has a 3rd connection you may use that is for the tac. very simple.
The one you have now ... do you get spark to the spark plugs. If so I would fool around more with being sure it is installed correctly, find TDC and be sure the rotor is pointing to the #1 cylinder, ALSO that you have the plug wires going in the right order on the cap. I dont think you will have luck with the computer compatible question.
