So. I picked up a 91 ranger just to cruise the powerline and play in the mud. After lots of work (only paid a couple hundred for it) I am ready to take it to a poker run/mud run this coming weekend. I was going to name it Oscar the grouch because there was so much garbage left in it, it looked...
I have a 91 4x4 and pulled the hubs off to replace bearings, etc. Somehow...I'm missing two nuts! I set them somewhere but can't find them. So, need to go to a junk yard, which ones will fit? what year is the same and does it have to be manual hubs? (Mine are manual)
I have craft disease, Can't...
I'm a tank mechanic in the army and an avid drag racer. Built vw dune buggies as a kid in the 70's but have been a die hard Ford guy forever. Built lots of mud trucks and ran stock cars over the years. Never had a ranger but had 4 early bronco's. Wife is pissy because I'm gone to the track all...

1996 ranger auto 4x4 with a broke clutch pedal and a 1994 ranger 2x4 for $800.
Thoughts? Off roading only.

Anyway, posted a couple of questions in the 4cyl forum and now intro
New guy here, picking up a 4cyl ranger for my kid to drag race. What rpm do these 4cyl "nose over" (stop making power) yes it will rev to 7000 or whatever, but where does it stop pulling hard? I'm guessing 5000 or so?
Also, what year did the fly by wire throttle cable start, I'd like to avoid...
