Best Answer

The wire from the fuel tank float unit to the gauge could be shorted to ground, or else could be open(disconnected). The float unit, if a brass "tank" type is no longer airtight, allowing fuel into float & causing it to drop to bottom of tank (where it would go if tank were empty). If float is like neoprene, it may now soak up gasoline rather than float in it--causing a heavy, fuel-logged float to again sink.

If the tires are oversized this will cause part of it. This engine is carburerated so it cannot compensate like fuel injected cars can. You will notice this problem more during head wind, heavy loads etc.If your tires are oversized you may consider a lighter, regular tire. Good luck. Answer if your bronco is an 89 then its not carburerated. they started putting in fuel injection in 86
