  1. $#@&! rear timing cassette busted, what's my best course of action?

    Yes, Ford shops usually won't work on any Ford vehicle if its over 10 years old, sometimes 15 Too many hassles Trying to explain to an unhappy customer that replacing the transmission didn't cause the flat tire 2 months later, lol "Well I NEVER had a flat tire until YOU worked on it!!!"

  3. $#@&! rear timing cassette busted, what's my best course of action?

    Engine needs to come out to do the repair Worst case is cam timing slips and valves get bent, usually doesn't hurt pistons(just a mark) and won't bend rods Parts are not that expensive Just the labor to pull and put back in the engine, which should be about 8-10 hours labor with basic tools...

  7. 2004 Ranger Engine Repair, Swap, or Scrap?

    New head cost of $1,457.99 is silly, $350 per head is average so even $1,000 for two is a bit on the high side I.E. a full rebuilt 3.0l Long Block is $1,595, seen here: https://unitedengine.com/product/ford-3-0l-181-ci-v6-long-block-engine/ $1,695 here...

  9. 1994 B4000 Window Problem

    The drivers side Master uses its own 12v and Ground to activate the passenger side motor The passenger side switch is by passed, i.e. the 2 wires from Master are connected directly to the motor on the back of passenger side switch Master==============||======motor Passenger side switch will...
  10. Tap into relay signal?

    Got it You soldered a wire to the relay itself You can buy a 5 pin relay socket with 5 wires attached, about $4, i.e. : https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/images/L/4411-021.JPG Put tabs on the end of each wire and plug those wires into the vehicles relay slots, wires can be made as long as you...
  11. Tap into relay signal?

    Confused: "I currently have a wire soldered to the power output of the ac clutch relay, but I just can't get it to seat fully into the socket" You would solder a wire on the back side of the relay socket, which wouldn't be an issue to put relay in place? It's often easier to get the 12v...
  12. 87 manual 2.9 finally running

  14. help finding part number for ecu

    No, none of those are related The suffix is specific to that part only, not vehicle or model If you don't have the engine computer's part number then you need to get one that matches your vehicles specifics: There are 3 things to match Engine size, 2.3l, 3.0l or 4.0l in 1995 EGR or no EGR...
  15. ..92 ranger 3.o with fuel pump issues.

    Yes, SPOUT wire/signal needs to be disconnected to set Base Spark timing, same as you needed to unplug vacuum advance to set Base spark timing on older distributors So there is a SPOUT Connector for that purpose, basically a Jumper that you pull out to set Base timing O2s are the only sensors...
