    Hey, all. Coming down to the last of a long list of repairs to my 1992 Ranger Custom. The parking brake cable was shot when I got the truck. Ordered a new one from Dorman and have fed it through the firewall, seen here for reference...

    Can I Combine a Cork Gasket with RTV?

    Hey, all. I’m thinking about putting a thin film of black RTV on both sides of the cork gasket going on the auto transmission pan of my 1992 Ranger with the A4LD. I’ve always used cork gaskets and never had one leak before, but I’d like to have a little bit of extra insurance on this one, in...

    ’92 Ranger A4LD Trans Fluid Leak - At Shifting Armature Maybe?

    Just wondering what folks here think. As the title says, I have a ’92 Ranger with and A4LD auto trans that leaks. When I bought it almost a year ago, I could see right away that it was dripping. I changed the fluid and filter and, to my surprise, the leak continued. I purposely bought a...

    Body Mount Torque & Tire Size (1992 Ranger)

    Hey, guys. Bought the Prothane bushings for the body mounts on my ’92 Ranger Custom 4x4 (4.0, A4LD). Finally ready to tighten them down, but no torque settings came with them (the instructions said to consult my repair manual and Haynes has no info). Anyone know what the correct torque is...

    How to Determine Proper Cab Alignment?

    Hey, folks. Me again. So I’ve been trying to replace the body mount bushings on the 1992 Ranger Supercab that I bought earlier this year. Unfortunately, the previous owner kept driving it despite the bushings being shot, so the old hardware destroyed the tops of the cab mounts themselves from...

    So Confused About What Size Air Compressor I Need

    Hey, all. I won’t go into all the details, but my current project has been so disheartening. At the moment, I could really use some good advice on air compressors. I’ve been unable to buy a lot of the air tools that would have made life much easier (sheet metal cutters, wire wheels, etc) as...

    MIG Welding Regulator Advice?

    Hey, folks. Trying to make my first foray into welding, since the Ranger I bought turned out to be a lemon (rotted out floorboards, damaged body mounts, etc). I bought Lincoln’s HandyMIG, hoping it would fit my needs (here’s a link with all the stats offered by the retail store I bought it...

    Things to Check for While My Catalytic Converter is Out?

    Hey, all. Had to take the catalytic converter out of my 1992 Ranger Custom (4.0 liter) in order to get access to work on other things (don’t ask). :bawling: While the cat is out, is there anything I can visually check for or do in order to discern the relative “health” of the unit? I’ve...

    Hey, everyone. Taking one last crack at making my own retainers (sleeves) for my body mount hardware before coughing up another $240.00 to LMC for them (I’ve already dumped well over a grand into tools over the last few weeks, trying to save this old lemon, which I only got to drive for a few...

    Name That Body Part

    Hey, guys. Feel silly asking this. What’s the name of the item seen here, that’s rotted out on my ’92 Ranger? https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Yrl4Y44s6kmCNhCs37hpQw1vAUkPFRVo/view?usp=sharing It’s located at the bottom front of the passenger’s side door (opposite the cab corner), just below...

    How To Cut Holes in 1/8” Steel?

    Hey, all. So the cab mount bushings on my ’92 Ranger went bad while the PO still had it. Because he never fixed them, the circular holes in the top of the mounts themselves became enlarged. The rest of the mounts are fine, but the sleeves on the new mounts would have all kinds of slop if I...

    Questions RE: POR-15

    Hey, all. Got a ’92 Ranger with a solid frame, but lots of corrosion on the floor pans, underbody, etc. Going to have to cut and patch the floors where the rust has gone right through, then clean and treat the rest. Haven’t been able to find a sandblaster that will run off my crappy little...

    Is This a Transfer Case Vent Hose on a ’92 Ranger?

    Thought I posted this yesterday, but can’t find the thread now. Apologies if it’s a duplicate. So as mentioned, I have a 1992 Ranger Custom 4x4 with the 4.0 and A4LD trans. While poking around under the truck, I found this rather silly looking rubber hose sticking off of the front of the...

    Drain Plug Location on the Transfer Case?

    I have a ’92 Ranger Supercab 4x4, 4.0, A4LD. Can’t seem to find the drain plug on the transfer case. Found the fill plug on the back side of the case no problem and was shocked to find that it was actually full (the PO did NOT maintain this truck). Looking to drain it and put in new however...
