    Intermittent tach.

    I've got a '96 Ranger, 3.0, auto trans. The tach works when it wants to. I've pulled to instrument panel and cleaned the connections. I have looked over the wiring. There is no misfire when the tach cuts out. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and what the solution was. I...

    A little problem with my truck. (pics)

    I went to the "playground" yesterday and decided I would see how well the old '87 would do it deep snow. We have about 16" of powder on top of about 6" of hard pack. I drove through the plowed snow bank, Up a slight incline, on down into a valley. I came to a stop down in the valley and had to...

    The General store, 2 buildings away, is on fire! 2 buildings in the other direction is the fire dept so they got there quick. They about had it out and the whole thing burst into flames from the heat. Now there are at least three fire departments battling a major blaze. I was just leaning on the...

    life sucks! I'll get through it.

    I've spent all summer Working on getting ready for the labor day blast at the playground. Wifey (Lilred on airbrush.com) has been in and out of the hospital all week. She has anemia and high blood pressure. I've missed about 10 hours of work this week because of it. That is OK because I get...

    D44 front end trouble (PICS)

    Well last Labor day we knew that I broke an axle joint in the DeRanged Mudder. When it happened I was sure it was much worse, I yelled out the window "broken diff". When we got it out of the mud we saw it had a broken joint. "Oh, is that all". I finally got time to work on it. I pulled the axle...

    A little AOD tech

    On the right are the gears from an AOD, On the left are gears from a 4r70w. with the parts in the picture (plus a couple more) you can convert the gear ratio for first gear from 240 to 284. It also lowers second gear.

    My new apprentice.

    At 3 years old his is pretty confidant in his work. Of course Dad has to loosen and torque bolts. You have to make sure that you don't leave tools within reach!

    Vent windows?

    I found a good question to ask. What years of Rangers had vent windows as an option? I tried the search and found no answers. Maybe this should have been in interior, That is the way I think of them.
