    Jeffrey T

    • Year:1978
    • Make:Ford
    • Model:Bronco

    Engine : 6.6L 400

    Drivetrain : not sure yet but im thinking its got the automic C4 but i cant figure out how to identify my axle types and transfer case. Any tips?

    Transmission : no info

    VIN : no info

    I recently bought my bronco so im still just getting to know her. she's almost finished being primered, then were going green. There is a few miles on it and shes ticking pretty bad. Lifter or rocker is what ive been told. She needs some TLC and Im happy to do it but cant afford too yet. Any input or advice about 1978 bronco custom would really be appreciated.

    Hello! All first generation full size Bronco came with a Ford 9" rear and a Dana 44 front. If your motor is in fact a 400 Ford then there will be a "s" in your vin #. Also your tranny will be a C6. The C6's pan will not be square it will be six sided as apposed to four on a C4's pan. If you are curious what gear ratio your axles are there should be a tag bolted to the third member of your 9". In addition to all that, assuming your hubs are factory, if they are manual locking (like they appear to be) you have a New Process 205 (NP205) gear driven transfer case. If they are automatic locking hubs then you have a NP203 transfer case. Check out for some awesome info on the '73-'79 F series, a lot of it will apply to First Gen Full Size Broncos. Also there is which is a fourm loaded with everything Ford Trucks! Hope all that helps have fun with your project!
