  1. Truck’s Computer Version Correct?

    Contrary to what some people think, the pinouts of the ECM's and the schematics of the electronic 4x4 shift system don't lie. The speed sensor inputs to the ECM, and plays a part in the 4x4 electronic shift system. An automatic transfer case will not shift into 4 low while the truck is moving...
  2. Truck’s Computer Version Correct?

    There may be a difference between the 4wd and 2wd ECM's if you have an electronic shift transfer case, as it depends on the speed sensor, which communicates with the ECM. I have doubts that your ECM is actually what someone wrote on it with a Sharpie. I did a search for the ECM model...
  3. Is this supposed to be there?

    The ground should go from the passenger side of the block to the frame, and then to the negative battery terminal. It's possible that a '90 Ranger would not ground to the frame, but it should be a 4 gauge wire from block to battery. There should be a smaller wire tapped into the 4 gauge ground...
  4. 2.9 lifter tick.?

    If it's as worn as this one is, I wouldn't recommend re-using it.
  5. Rodent nest, won’t start, no Visible wiring damage

    It sounds like you're determined to blame those pesky squatting rodents. :)
  6. 2.9 lifter tick.?

    I would imagine that an oil starved rocker arm shaft may cause some kind of noise. Not sure if that would include tapping. The shaft fills with oil and then goes through the holes/ports to the rocker arms (top and bottom of the shaft and rocker). You can see that the far right oil port (which...
  7. 1987 Ford Bronco II Can't get Fuel

    If they haven't been removed for a long time you may have to twist the quick disconnect fittings (male and female sides) to break them loose before they will separate.
  8. '88 dash pad removal

    I've never taken the dash pad out before, but here are the relevant pages from the 1987 Shop Manual.
  9. 1987 Ford Bronco II Can't get Fuel

    I replaced mine a few years ago with the one in the picture I posted. Those are definitely sealed shut. I don't recall where I read about some with and without filters. TRS I think. I got tired of issues with the oring on my original filtered reservoir (and gas down my arms and in my face when...
  10. 1987 Ford Bronco II Can't get Fuel

    When you bypassed the fuel reservoir, you did connect the two smaller hoses and the two larger hoses, right? Just checking, because the supply and return lines switch positions when they exit the reservoir. Swapping the lines would create the problem you have. Also, if you try to force open a...
  11. Oil sensor removal on 2.9

    If channellocks won't fit, the only other thing I can think of trying is to clamp some big vise grips onto the sending unit (rotated as far clockwise as you can when you first clamp them down), then some other tool (channellocks?) on the vise grips. You'll only be able to loosen it a little each...
  12. Mitsubishi FM145 teardown video

    I wish he had been a bit more detailed in the reassembly, but it's enough to encourage me to experiment with one of the worn out FM145's I have. I notice now that there are bearings and races inside the gears on the main shaft that are not included in the rebuild kits. I would think that those...
  13. Aggravating 2.9 issue.....putt putt puttering....

    Hey Rusty, this page in the Tech Library says "The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) supplies this signal to the components that require vehicle speed information including the speed control amplifier for cruise control equipped vehicles and computer. The computer uses the VSS signal for emissions...
  14. 2.3L ('83-'97) Removing computer connector

    It looks like the threads are a knurled brass insert that it molded into the plastic of the connector. If someone over-tightened it when it was last installed, it's possible it cracked the plastic and is just spinning like you mentioned. As previously mentioned, try putting some tension on the...
  15. Aggravating 2.9 issue.....putt putt puttering....

    It doesn't sound like it's heat related if it does this when it's cold after only 30 seconds or so, or am I miss-reading what you stated? Have you checked your coil for resistance? What about the ignition module connector? I have found that 30+ year old connectors don't play well with some newer...
  16. Power Steering Gear replacement

    It depends on what you think "fun" is. I did mine last year, and I didn't think it was fun. This loaner tool from Autozone worked good for removing the pitman arm. Tighten it, hit it with a big hammer, the pitman arm comes loose. I did hit the threads with penetrating oil for a couple days...
  17. Power Steering Gear replacement

    Wow. Shiny.
  18. Re-Radiator Strategies : '89 Automatic 2.9L 4x4 w A/C

    Toonces did it. Apparently he can multitask when he's driving a Ranger. Just not very well.
  19. coolant overpressurization, replaced parts, glove test

    Head gasket, thermostat stuck in the closed position, non-diluted coolant? I'd first check the thermostat to make sure it opens and closes correctly (in a pan of water on the stove, using a thermometer). Any bubbles at the radiator with the cap removed and the engine running? If it's the head...
  20. 1994 Ranger windshield wiper part

    What's the diameter of the ball stud? I have seen earlier model Rangers with both 7/16" and 9/16" ball studs, though the charts show the 9/16" only from '97. I have assumed that the smaller studs were for the earlier model Ranger/B2's, and the larger were for the later models. The model #s I...
