  1. 3.0 4wd tire sizes / performance

    My 2000 3.0 4wd MO5D came with 245/75-16 tires and 4.10 gears. It rode jouncy and gave average performance. Years ago, I put a set of Explorer take-offs (Craigslist) Dueler AT Revos, 235/75-15. They woke that truck up nicely, with better take-offs and 5th gear was more responsive. I had to...
  2. EGR issue

    2000 2.5 (all stock), new to me truck, had it about a month, >1000 miles. Did all the routine stuff, cleaned the IAC and TB, found and fixed a broken vacuum line, etc. Replaced the DPFE because it ran "skippy" at light throttle and had a code (P0401). PO had run it "for years" with that CEL...
  3. 87 2.9 into 90, tips/advice?

    Guy claims it's a low mileage engine, been in its original truck and a BII. Both got wrecked. May get it this evening if I can borrow my neighbor's truck. Anything other than EGR that I need to address on this swap over? It's got the exhaust manifolds and Y/H pipe still installed. I figure...
  4. My long weekend

    Drove to PA on Thursday night after a work picnic. Got there about 11. Friday, helped my Mom and Dad move a truckload of crap from a rental house. Wet carpet amongst the worst of it. That, and the landfill stunk and stained up my sneaks. Later, drove FIL's 2000 Grand Marquis 54 miles to...
  5. $100 1990 2.9 Auto 4WD STX w/4.10s

    http://www.therangerstation.com/forums/showthread.php?t=75668 Bear with me, I'll get the photos linked better when I get home (can't do the photobucket at work). edit: see if they show up this time. Bought this for $100 Saturday from Craigslist. Great guy selling it, helped me load it...
  6. Trans bolt patterns, 4.2V6 vs. 4.6V8, 5.4V8?

    Buddy has a 97 F150, bad 4.2 (still running, hunting beater) wants to throw a V8 in it (4WD, auto trans). I need to know if his 4.2 V6 tranny will bolt to either of these V8s. He won't do it if he has to replace this trans. Flexplate, starter advice is welcome too. I'm off to search...

  8. 99 Explorer update

    At the very least, MHughes165 will appreciate this: I bought this 99 EB Explorer 4.0 SOHC Auto 4wd from Mike's workplace, cheap, back in November. Mike had it posted on TRS Trucks For Sale board with photos. Tow Dollied it home from NJ with my 3.0 Ranger. Exp had issues, but I figured I'd...
  9. Amount of slave travel?

    93 2.3 S-cab MO5D 2wd: I have the clutch Hydraulics completely removed, with a new slave. Trying to bleed it prior to installation. Tranny was pulled because after 1/2 mile of driving, it was impossible to shift (without rpm matching). Seemed like heat would cause the slave to lose travel...
  10. 2001+ 2.3 into a 93, low budget build

    I'm getting a free 93 Ranger, 2wd, Reg cab, 5 speed manual tranny, rear ratio unknown. Body is straight, never wrecked, but "it's been in the woods some". The motor (he calls it a 2.0, but I am skeptical) is dead, according to the owner. Used to run last fall, but starter would freewheel...
