in regards to your 2.9 rebuild plans
- If you do not need new heads, I recommend considering a quality multiangle valve job with new valve guides and guide seals.
- while it's apart disassemble, clean and inspect your rocker arms, rockers and push rods. Replace as necessary but just...
Use the wiring from the 91 in the 87, all of it, every bit, the computer too. It will be simpler to move everything from the 91, all sensors, the entire dash and steering column.
Doing it this way is way more "plug and play". A complete operational system taken form one chassis and placed in...
I have riden on Trailblazer, James Duff LLC, Rough Country and Pro Comp Ranger suspension lifts. There are several factors, some are constants, they need to be identified to see the big picture of ride control.
Q: What is the suspension constantly trying to do?
A: keep the tires...
Anytime I face this issue, that being replacement bulbs and fuse do not cure the issue, I simply build and install fresh wiring for the system.
It is much less expensive than expected using the new underground rated wiring from Lowes (hardware shoppe). My trucks are old...
I have a favorite brand of knife, it's the "Studies and Observation Group" often referred to as SOG. I was using a a full sized SOG SALUTE mid-lock, which very much surprised me for both edge retention and toughness. I hated how it opened but gave it a try. As a work knife, it is quite a...
To the best of my knowledge, the "Y" and associated tubing remained the same throughout for the OHV 4.0L.
If you need a replacement, I'm interested in your scrap pieces; I need the piece of tubing right after the "Y", before the cat for a temporary exhaust setup 👀
A manual BII turning 32's with 4:10 is almost as good a match up as you could have. I would expect 100% better fuel economy, even from a much heavier Explorer with that setup.
-That is really low mileage even for putting around always in 4 wheel.
-warming up your engine will only...
As said, either 3:73 or 4:10 will be better than 3:55. If you think you may ever use bigger tires, then get the 4:10's. I vote for 4:10 even if both are available with 31.5".
There are many axels in wrecking yards, they will let you look at the gears, if they look nice and money permits, but...
I recommend just use the speakers in the front; a simple 3 speaker system can sound very good (1 pair of coaxials in front and one sub in the rear). If that isn't practical, then just use the single pair in the front; those speakers firing directly into the seat are only adding...
On a new engine I do the following:
• 200 mi, oil change with patroleum based
• 500 mi, oil change with patroleum based
• 1,000 mi, oil change to synthetic
After these first 3 oil changes I revert to my normal intervals.
$50 for the pitman arm, all 4 drop brackets, front springs, the radius arms, the front sway bar with all brackets/hardware and both complete rear spring packs.
The owner felt like he had the best part of the deal after watching me pull those parts from the yard with only hand tools.
It's 1st dent; I had temporarily leaned an upright 8' 4x4 against the auto I was working on, 93-111 or so seconds later I bumped it and it fell...in slow motion towards the 1987 Ranger parked behind.
It landed square on the front corner giving it it's first ever sent. It is almost 8" long and...
Yes, a 2" body lift is an option; when I first put 29.5's on my four wheel drive 1987 Ranger a 4" body lift was the ticket.
A factory Ford Hi-Rider suspension lift is worth considering. While they are not the most common setup, I've spotted a few in wrecking yards, that is where...
It has been my experience that universal components are cheaper, even new stainless steel, from big names like Borla. I suspect that you could recreate the entire exhaust with universal replacements or universal hi-flow replacements, maintaining all emissions, with improved performance...
I go about things differently than I used, some would suggest slower.
Comparing the 2 distributors, the Duralast is the thickness of a dime longer, I am uncertain this will have any bearing on it's performance.
Install was unexpectedly fast, plopped right in. I have experienced it going well...
