The truck of my dreams, A clean, long cab, pushrod 4.0 4x4 STOCK ! In a more perfect universe we could exhange Rangers and you could give the kid the Rat to break . I'M 2200miles down I 90E from you. Life is wasted on the young :cool:
Ooops The Rat is my '94 ranger 125" wb 4.0 5spd 4x4 3.27 diffs . The truck is a total mess and has been off road for 3 yrs. I use it around the yard to move stuff. I really like the this yr and model ranger, I just want one in waaaay better condition. The Mazda B4000 looks to be closer...
I never heard of such a thing but it is rotted bad just out board of the U- bolt. No clue as to rear end. Say the 3.27 in the Rat's 8.8 is the right gears would the entire rear end be a direct bolt in? TIA
No pump noise Proved the circuit end to end. Including 12V straight to terminal on tank. I have an external Bosch pump I can put between the tank and the filter along the frame rail. . Bed is pushed back enough to remove dead pump. The Rat is a yard truck now.
I think you mean coil,not solenoid. Air gap is usually set with a business card. As long as the fly wheel clears the gap is OK. One hole is slotted so its range is limited. If the starter feels funny it may have sheared a key.
my '72 Datsun pick up was rated as a 1/2 ton truck. Torsion bar front suspension, Leafs in back. If I could get it into the bed , it would move it. It overheated on my wife to the point it detonated through #4 piston. I fixed it with parts from a rusted out hulk with a good head. Harder...
Check the lube levels on front diff, and Transfer Case. Happy New Year :D
If the Rat's front pumpkin isn't dripping, its empty :D
You're dealing with an 18 yr old Ford, anything can happen at any time, :dunno:
