  2. Best starting upgrades for off-roading 1994 Ranger XLT

    The cooler is a loop. You disconnect one line from the existng cooler. Connect the line to the 2nd cooler. Then use some line or hose to run to first cooler

  5. Buy 2000 B 4000 4x4 with a rotted axle tube?

    I never heard of such a thing but it is rotted bad just out board of the U- bolt. No clue as to rear end. Say the 3.27 in the Rat's 8.8 is the right gears would the entire rear end be a direct bolt in? TIA
  6. 94 4.0 dead fuel pump?

    No pump noise Proved the circuit end to end. Including 12V straight to terminal on tank. I have an external Bosch pump I can put between the tank and the filter along the frame rail. . Bed is pushed back enough to remove dead pump. The Rat is a yard truck now.

    I love butternut squash, crooknecks, zucchini cukes pickled anything. Hot pepper plants discourage pests :D
  8. Help with symptoms

    Generic advice ,check ATF level, color and smell. I know if I had a Ford with an AT that was acting up at 200k , selling it would be a good option
  9. the Lawn Mower thread.

    I think you mean coil,not solenoid. Air gap is usually set with a business card. As long as the fly wheel clears the gap is OK. One hole is slotted so its range is limited. If the starter feels funny it may have sheared a key.
  10. No power after re-ring and top end

    My guess is that a few lifters need to pump up
  11. Little Ford Ranger working hard! Big trucks? Beauty Queens.

    my '72 Datsun pick up was rated as a 1/2 ton truck. Torsion bar front suspension, Leafs in back. If I could get it into the bed , it would move it. It overheated on my wife to the point it detonated through #4 piston. I fixed it with parts from a rusted out hulk with a good head. Harder...

    The Rat is moving ahead. It started easily and I backed it out of the yurt. In preparation to put the bed back on. I replaced the filler neck. Where the filler neck attaches to the tank was split in several places. I gooped the splits with JB Weld gray silicone . If it works as...

    I have replaced all the brake parts from the backing plates out even the rear E- brake cables. I did tighten up the adjustments on the shoes but the E- brake barley grabs and does nothing at all in reverse. Do I just tighten up the shoes some more or did I screw some thing up? TIA
