    Free-floating rocker mod with PVC

    Have any of you done the free-floating rocker mod in here? I found some PVC pipe that is just a fraction bigger than what the directions call for.

    Recurving the Duraspark II distributor

    Have any of you done this on the 2.8 V6? Is it worth doing? Also, where did you find the recurve/spring kit? I've got a 1983 4x4 with the 2.8 that's going to be my daily driver. Most of the time I'll be traveling 40 to 60mph, and the farthest distance would be about 30 miles each way to work...

    Control-line planes

    Does anybody fly control-line planes anymore? I had a blast when I was a teen flying those. We'd get two and sometimes three guys in the same circle dogfighting. I just don't hear about that anymore.

    Hello from the Adirondacks of New York

    Hi folks, been reading quite a bit in this forum and I figured I'd finally post. I've got a 1983 4x4 Ranger that came with a 4 cylinder. I gave that motor away and dropped in a very small 2.6 liter V6. Didn't improve it one bit. LOL So my plans are to someday buy the drive train out of a 1996...
