So i just got my rangers engine back together and when I went to start it it spun faster and sounded like it didn't have compression, I'm guessing that the camshaft is off on timing but I'm unsure and it has spark and fuel, I checked those before everything else, what are some things I can do to...
So I have a 1986 2.3 with the fm145 transmission and I'm going to be building the 2.3, so what should I do to keep it from grenading, since I already know that the synchros are gone, and I have a short throw shifter on it so I shift it harder than normal, so what are some things that I should...
