Currently in progress for carb swapping the 2.3.
Parts list so far:
Racer Walsh adapter
Speedway motors distributor
Gm hei module
Pc-91 e coil
Recently got my hands on a 2.3 that’s currently fuel injected but the engine wiring harness is toasted. Edward scissor hands got into the engine bay and went to town.
Currently piecing together the conversion for carb based off posts here and other places.
Here’s what I have so far...
Working on getting started for my V8 swap! I got an 8.8 rear end out of a '97 explorer last week. I also ordered a fuel injected crate motor from BluePrint Engines that's going to be delivered towards the end of January. Here's the link to the one I got...
Just took my 88 ranger xlt 2.3L 5 speed to a quick lube place for and oil change, I tried to do it myself but was having a hard time getting the filter off and said screw it. I noticed the oil filter they put on is smaller than the one they took off, is that ok? Obviously it fits but is it going...

When I purchased this truck the previous owner told me it never had AC. But from what I understand it seems like it did at one point. Did someone rip out a bunch of components and alter things? Can anyone confirm for me and maybe tell me if I have options of getting AC back again...

Hi, im 17 and i just recently purchased a 1988 supercab stx ford ranger and as of right now the two jump seats are missing. I cant find any of the proper model for sale and i was wondering if either someone knew where to buy them or knew a different model of seat that would fit properly?
I brought home a used 1988 Ranger custom with 70XXX miles.
It's missing some piping under the battery. The fella I bought it from said it was part of an emissions system. Should I replace it? What is it? Could it be causing my wandering idle?
So i bought a 1988 radio. It has a lot of static so I got a new antenna and installed that.
The static didn't go away. I figured out that I can turn the volume knob and at one particular spot, the radio clears up.
I don't know why this is, can anyone help? Do I need a new stock radio?

I've got a 1988 Ranger with the 2.9 V6. My problem is that my A/C is blowing hot air, but there is a charge of R-134a in the system (it was converted many years ago and has worked on and off since).
The compressor was replaced about 3 years ago and I believe a few other components are new to...
Hello fellow Ranger owners,
I am replacing my water pump and while in there, I want to replace the gear and chain set.
All the bolts off and balancer off, is there a trick to get the cover off?

Maybe you can help me figure out what paint I'm supposed to be looking for. My grandfather passed this truck to me. It actually belonged to both of my grandfathers at one time. I'd like to do some touch up.
Here is the info from my door:
As you can see my paint codes are listed as...
