    Blown head gasket woes

    I had my cylinder head gasket give out on me not too long ago. Once I pulled the head, I found coolant getting into cylinder #4, and a chipped piston on cylinder #1. The gasket had been blown away between cylinders #1 and #2. My question is this: how did all this happen to cylinder #1? I...

    I'm pissed and confused...

    Tonight, and after spending five hours on it, I figured out why my rear differential was leaking bad enough that it runs itself dry rather quickly. The 8.8" that came in my ranger has always had problems with leaking, but it has progressively gotten worse over the years. At first, I started...

    Electrical testing; nothing makes sense...

    Two years ago my pickup was involved in a wreck. In order to have something to drive, I took the '86 thunderbird turbo computer and components that were in the ranger, and I swapped into back into my '86 thunderbird. I then put all of my '87 turbo coupe stuff in the ranger, but it won't run...

    Electrical mystery

    I just about have my pickup running again, and this time I will have the '87 LA3 in it, but I'm having problems with something that I don't understand. When checking the SIG and SIG RTN on the VAM and TPS, I'm getting a reading of .07-.08 millivolts. My dad and I both have triple checked...

    One of my friends up in the KC area is hosting a ranger meet next month (July) on the 14th or 15th (exact date to be decided shortly) at Zarda BBQ in Blue Springs, MO. How's about some people on here going to it?! :icon_bounceblue: I really hope I can make it, even though I'll be driving...

    Million Mile Odometer, who has one?

    Just as the title says, but I also want to know what year ranger you have, and where it came from (like the state it was originally sold in). I have one, and I'm just curious if anyone else does.

    Question about Pioneer amplifier

    I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about putting an amp in my car for the rear two speakers to have more "oomph" without putting my headunit through too much strain and to clear up my overall sound. I was given an amp a year ago or so and I know almost nothing about it, but from what I've...

    Manual steering? Manual brakes?

    I'm just trying to find out who has manual steering (or swapped to manual steering) and likes it that way? And has anyone stuck with manual brakes or swapped to them? (I would've went with manual brakes last weekend, but the pedal shafts I have from my gen 1 are different lengths and I...

    Old horns...

    I want to get different horns for my ranger because the ones that I have sound like a whinny toddler. They're loud, but they suck. I've been going through some junkyards and finding quite a few '70s F-150s and such that have BIG snail style horns. Does anybody know how well those things...

    Putting it back up to stock

    I've been loving the look of my truck being lowered for the past year and a half, but it's gotten to the point that I find it annoying to always be rubbing suspension parts and fender wells on the rough roads that I frequent in my area (rural Missouri isn't an asphalt wonderland) Plus, I've had...
