    92 Ranger Ignition cylinder stuck in 'on' position

    Ignition cylinder got stuck 'on/run'. Its happened before but a little wiggle set it free. Today driving home I noticed I had no power to my radio, then noticed nothing worked inside, windows, vent fan, etc. Got home, and the key was stuck on, couldn't turn the truck off so I pulled the fuel...

    235/75r15 on a 15x8 ok?

    Will a 235/75r15 on a 15x8 rim work fine? I'll just be driving asphalt for a good long time, no playing. Its the cheapest I can find. That's 9.3 or so wide. I've been looking but I also have to get cheap. I'd like a 245 but I'm just not finding any in the same price range. There was one...

    1992 Ford Ranger 4x4 V6 4.0L 'Old Cliff"

    So I replaced the L/R brake cylinder AND one of the push rods from the cylinder to the brake shoe since I lost it. Did that a few weeks back. Man it was a while since I did some drum work, I need a pair of brake pliers. BUT maybe not, I'm keeping my eye out for a 95+ explorer rear 3.73-4.10 so I...

    1992 Ford Ranger 4x4 V6 4.0L 'Old Cliff"

    When I left the house I keyed it on/off a few times, read that would build up pressure for a better start, and it did. Topped off the tank after work today (first time driving it since) and it rode just fine, started just fine. First time in a long time I spent $60 in gas lol. Either my gauge is...

    When I bought it two things. One, he said they replaced the fuel pump. Two, it was on F, I've never bought a vehicle on full.

    1992 Ford Ranger 4x4 V6 4.0L 'Old Cliff"

    And then today this morning it took a long time cranking before it started, and same when I left work. Then while I was driving home it died probably 8-10 times. So yay. No hesitations or stumbling, idles and drives smooth. Not electrical radio and blower motor still running (Had the heat...

    Edit: 7/15/19: Finally saw that tiny writing saying this section is not for questions. That needs to be bigger :) So I'ma just edit the title and then posts some updates. My intro got a little tech-y so I'll post a few newbie questions. When I bought the truck the temperature and volt meter...

    Pulled the tire and drum. Wheel cylinder leak, not axle. Also my parking brake cable is broken in the drum. Removed everything, cleaned, tomorrow I'll reassemble with the new cylinder. Semi-long term I would like a disc brake conversion, I hate drums :ROFLMAO:

    Thanks man, I watched a few videos last night too, but really appreciate a nice step by step article like yours. I'm going to tackle this sometime this week. But I need a few tools, coming back from not really having any automotive tools the past few years. I'm fighting the "might as well" on...

    Bleh, I didn't even think about that. But never seen that happen before either. Borrowed a jack from work, and after I refill it and hopefully get it working again and take it apart, I'll find out. I haven't been noticing the brake fluid reservoir emptying... so maybe.

    Door sticker code says 91 for axles, so a 3.27 gear ratio :( But the tag on the rear diff is painted over so I need to scrape that off and read what that says just in case it was changed. Fooey.

    So something I noticed was the rear dual tank cover goes to nothing. Maybe someone put that bed on later. But there's no second tank. Either way its cool if I wanted to! Also found a brake leak L-R wheel cylinder I imagine, dripping from inside the drum. So guess I need to take a look and get one!

    I'm sure you'll laugh but, I didn't notice at all until I read that and scrolled back up to my picture. Haven't even walked outside to go look. Another thing is I didn't even pay attention to which engine it was until after I bought it and went home and decoded the vin. Once I got it home a...

    Hi all, Just bought a 92 Ranger 4x4 an hour ago from a wholesale lot. Its not even home yet, just gotta wait till my gf gets off work so I can bring it home. Been needing another vehicle and wanted a truck. Picked it up for $1800 from $2600 listed originally. Pretty darn clean inside and out...
