    1987 Ranger 4x4 - My 1st Truck

    That's interesting. I can see why getting rid of the reservoir makes sense. I've had issues with those in the past. I'll have to look into that kemso thing. So in my experience it's the in tank pump that goes out first. You're saying the inline one goes out commonly too? Hmm

    That's so weird, why would you get rid of the high pressure pump? Also why would you need to upgrade the fuel line when take out the high pressure pump? Do I have that backwards?

    Definitely need that pump on the rail. It's a high pressure pump like 75psi I think. The pump in the tank is just a pickup pump to get the fuel out if the tank and prime the lines. And I reused the original cardboard for headliner. For the door panels I used old ones as template for new ones.

    87 was my first truck too and also my current. I love the rust to riches trucks. Check out some of my posts from I've 2009 to see the interior. Might give you some ideas. I'll be watching this build.

    High time for an update

    After running the new 87 daily since May 2020 I decided to give it some attention. Painted it few months ago and gave it a 3" body lift and some new tires this week.

    Back to the first

    So after some more gaskets and one freeze plug between the engine and tranny and new exhaust. I've got it running and driving good. I am getting a slight sputter when I let of the gas. I mean slight. I did not replace the tps yet but I'm thinking that or possibly an injector.

    87 ranger 2.9 idling REALLY high.

    I found it. was the rearmost plenum gasket. Broke in half. Put some duct tape over the seam until I get gaskets and rpms dropped right down to 800.

    87 ranger 2.9 idling REALLY high.

    So I just bought this 87 that was parked and sat for two years. Changed out old gas and fuel filter and ran sea foam through it. Would only run when you pump the gas and even then ran crappy. I changed out the map and fires right up now. Idles smoothly but at 3k rpms. After it warms up it goes...

    I just put the iac in. Unplugging it after it's warmed up brings the idle down but not much at all. Maybe to like 1800. Temp sensor seems to be working fine. This might be another clue, but when i rev it, it takes a good 5 to 8 seconds for rpms to come back down to regular high. Tps?

    Been driving an explorer around for a couple years. Did the Rubicon in it. Stock axles and gears, no lockers. Made it all the way in and out with no breakage. Fun rig but was time to get back into a Ranger, so I picked up an 87 for 500 bucks. Almost like my first truck the red 87 stx. After...
