    306 V8 Ranger, valve train noise identified

    Found the Problem that was causing a little valve train noise. Wait until you see this! Turned out to be a little bit of excessive cam wear. Apparently the cam is the week link in this build. The metal properties of the Comp Cam limits the maximum mileage to about 150,000 miles with .512 lift...

    New valve springs and lifters on the 306

    Now that the "new" motor is over the 200,000 mile mark I thought new valve springs and lifters were in order. A few weeks ago I had my son swap the lifters and valve springs for me while we were chasing down some top end noise. This is the first time I have had the valve covers off and it was...

    Reg cab frame versus Super Cab

    I know this probably belongs in a different section of the forum but all my "boys" are over here. Question: Is the rear frame section for the 1999-2000 the same dimensions for super cab versus reg cab? I think all of the different dimensions are forward of the rivited joint but I need to be...

    99 V8 Ranger, no crank issue

    Call out for Rwenzing & RangerSVT

    I have double checked my notes and read everything I could find previously received from both of you. I feel confident I have all of my bases covered with the initial wiring for test start purposes. But then again, four or six eyes are better than two. Here is a quick rundown of the wiring...

    I did a search but could not get any firm info. I am looking for confirmation that a Hellwig 7511 rear sway bar will or will not fit a 1999 Ford Ranger with a DJM Flip Kit. I have heard that there might be interference between the sway bar and the DJM plates. If anyone has photos of their...

    Proper push rod length

    I am working on a 306 with GT40P heads, stock valves, Ford Racing lifters, Comp Cam, stock rockers. The block deck surface is OE spec but the heads were decked and the tops of the valve stems were cleaned up a bit. I mocked up my OE push rods to see how close they were. I was hitting my torque...

    Trans noise, 98 2wd 5 spd

    I have a 1998 Ranger 2 wd, 2.5 4 cyl, with a 5 speed manual trans. It has 192,000 miles and just started making noise earlier today.

    Another T-5 clutch slave question

    I have done a lot of reading/searching in regards to the popular hydraulic clutch set up for the 5.0 V8/T-5 swap on a 1998 Ranger 2wd coil spring truck. When I did a similar swap on a 1993 Splash back in 1997 the same set up was marginal at best. At that time I used the Total Performance kit...
