I need to know where you put the antifreeze and water.. and how much of each to put.

In the Radiator. Most coolant you mix 50% WATER/ 50% COOLANT. Dont use universal coolant, you want the green coolant.

Heat wont work on 1986 Chevrolet truck

The fan blows but there is no hot air? First check the antifreeze level in the radiator. Low antifreeze level can prevent enough fluid from reaching the heater core. Next, check the hoses leading to the firewall, which are likely 5/8" or 3/4 in size. If these are kinked or internally damaged they could prevent antifreeze from reaching the heater core in the cab. Other than that, it could be the heater core itself which is clogged or otherwise damaged.

O2 sensor on a 1986 bronco 2

On a 1986 it's very unlikely that you'd have an O2 sensor there - that port is for a secondary O2 sensor that would be found on a 96 or newer car, where the efficiency of the cat has to be monitored. You can plug the hole for use of the cat on your vehicle.

Cant read wirring diagram

as long as the steering lock no longer works you can leave the original switch where it is and mount your new switch in a convenient place. unplug the cables from under the steering column and extend them to your new switch. you should only have 4 cables there to go on your new switch. the battery cable is the one that is live all the time, a thick cable, the ignition is the one that makes the ignition lights come on when the key is turned, a thick cable, the accessory cable is the one that becomes live when turned to 1st position on key, a thinner cable, the starter cable is the one that goes to the starter motor when key turned to start a thick cable. hope this helps
