Question about 1985 Ford F150

1 Answer

1985 Ford Bronco 351, stalls when starting. When I am starting my Bronco when it is cold or hasn't ran for a bit I have to keep my RPM's up at about 1500 or if I let off the gas right away it will stall on me. I tried keeping the Broncos block heater plugged and it helped a little because I don't have to keep my RPM's up for as long before it is warm. Also when I first start out running the truck, there is a little bog if I where to push the pedal most of the way to the floor. Is it a choke problem or would it be wise to just replace the whole carb? or is it another problem

Can I use a 1985 Ford 351 in my 1995 Bronco?

you would need adapter mounts to mount the engine in the engine bay as well as exhaust manifolds or headers made for this swap, they all can be found at summit or jegs .com .not sure if transmission will bolt up or not ( dont know what trans you have ), if not i am sure someone makes adapter plates for that as well good luck!

You'll have to check for spark at the plugs and fuel pressure next time it quits.
Could be ignition module, a relay, fuel vapor lock, or a list of other things.

Should I rebuild my Ford Bronco 351 Windsor Holly 4 bbl carb or replace it with an Edelbrock carb?

In all my experience, if you know how to correctly tune a edelbrock then go with that, but, holley has outstanding carbs that can muster up to an output of 1,200hp. it would be much cheaper to et a rebuild kit from say, o'reillys, 20-45 dollars depending on which one you have.
