  1. tech article correction

    I believe a statement in the article in the link below is wrong. Probably a simple typo. Here's the article link https://www.therangerstation.com/tech/2-8l-chevy-tbi-swap-on-to-ford-2-8/ The problem is under the Why? section. Last paragraph in this section. It states; This will not work...

  3. Distributor problem with my 2.8

    I have converted my 2.8 to a duraspark dist and HEI module. It has been running great for the past 2 years or so. I drive it daily to work and coming home the other day it just shut off like you turned the key off as I was cruising down the road at about 60 mph. I pulled over, it would not...

  8. Bronco II rear axle is wider than a Ranger axle

    Found this out the hard way. Kept finding the pass side axle shaft is longer, but nothing is said about the complete axle is wider, including the spring perch mounting. I finally found on another site an obscure note that the Bronco II axle flange to flange is 1 1/4 inches wider than a ranger...
