Not all 4x4's come with a specific gear set, one of mine came with 4:10, the other with 3:43. It is worth the time and effort to establish what you have.
When my Ranger was new with a fresh tune up on premium with 3:43's on 25.7" rubber, it would net 20/25 (city/hwy). That set up was a...
There are a number of companies that made headers for a Ford 92 ohv 4.0L; surprisingly, the headers for the Ford ohv 2.9L also line up correctly and even more shocking, FLOW better!!!
I recommend building your own exhaust. You will literally save $100's building your own from...
I don't know what your stock gearing is but I feel 28.5" with 3:73 is perfect as is 32" on 4:10's. Your talking about in between, so I would not chose to go with any but the size combos I've mentioned if possible.
Between a 31" tire with 3:73's or 4:10's, the 4:10 is closer with 31's...
I would verify oil pressure when running but look at the oil level and how it looks on the stick 1st.
Next area I would suspect is under the valve covers. So if the oil pressure is good and the oil on the stick looks how you expect, then I would pop the valve covers and...
The camera on my phone is disabled and I don't own one. But it is an easy Google, they were called Captain buckets; it wasn't well known that they were made for Ford by Recaro. Once I learned about them I stumbled on my first set and bought them immediately (they were stock in an 89...
My favorite seats to put in 1st Gen Ranger's/BII's are early 90's BroncoII and Explorer captain buckets; they we're a $750/each factory option made by Recaro, they feel great, the whole ride!!
They are very easy to find quality seat covers for, since they were factory options.
When I lived in southern California I had to smog all.my out of state vehicles. The tech mentioned that even a leaking gas cap can through it out.
What are you getting for fuel economy; that can tell tons about the level of effeicentcy your dealing with.
It was years ago, 1998-2000 but I had...
It is right next to the distributor, part of the wire harness. There is a small gray plastic, I call a "dog house" shape removable cover. It hangs so it could be just a little lower than line of site and on the passenger side.
The connector is the 1st pic, on the heater blower side goes to the A/C.
I'll take a look under the hood after daylight and locate the wire connector your holding by you brake reservoir but I thought the only place that funky connector was used is to the neg battery terminal wire.
This is anal but...I have found that it makes a measurable improvement in vacuum and overall timing correctness.
-the engine should at normal operating temperature before removing the spout plug to set the correct base engine timing with the timing gun.
-it has been my...
If you aren't in a hurry, I've pulled 2 suspension lifts from the wrecking yard; a complete 89 Ranger Hi Ryder factory 2" suspension (on my 87 Ranger long bed) and a 4" Pro-Comp off an 88 super-cab Ranger (now on my 87 BII), both complete with front/rear springs, sways, all drop brackets...
If you use 235x75R15 with 3.73's you will experience the highest fuel economy and great torque range use. I can not recommend any other tire size with 3.73's in a RBV; that is a perfect marriage and I will.be green, SUPAgreen!!!
