  1. 2.3L ('02-'11) Will a TK5, E47A-LB from 83-87 fit a 08 2.3 L?

    I have a 2008 ford ranger 2.3 L. I found this transmission online thats 4x4. Just seeing if this bell housing from the TK5, E47A-LB 83-87 will fit a 08 ranger 2.3L engine?
  2. 2.3L ('02-'11) 2.3 2wd manual transmission to 4x4 transmission.

    This truck means a lot to me but I would like one feature and thats 4x4. I want to keep the 2.3L engine as it has only 58,000 miles on it. I know that its easier to sell it and get a 4x4 truck. I don't want that though. I knows it hard to find a 2.3L manual 4x4 transmissions too. I was just...

    Recommended clutch for 1996 4.0 (softer clutch desired)

    I may be doing the clutch soon on my 1996 ranger 4x4 5spd. I am wondering if there are any options out there that will make the clutch pedal a bit easier to depress. I will be doing the clutch as part of doing the slave cylinder to see if that fixes my stiff shifting problem. The clutch pedal is...

    Long time listener first time caller.

    Been hanging around these forums since high school when I had my first truck, Isabella, a '96 4-banger ranger. Lean mean indestructible machine. Been looking for a square body for years and finally just grabbed an '86 V6 Extended Cab 4x4 from Georgia. Drove it 14 hours up the coast to the cold...

    Sudden Positive Camber after lifting.

    Recently I picked up an 85 ford bronco ii 2.8 manual with the 5-speed and have been working on getting it road worthy again. Next problem after the horrendous engine timing from the previous owner or whoever is my positive camber change. Literally just lifted it so I can get the tires off and...

    2.3L ('83-'97) Carburetor swap

    Hey there, I've got an 83' Ranger 4x4 with the 2.3L equipped with a 1 Barrel Carb. I don't mind the Carter YFA but the vacuum system is a mess and I'd really like to swap to a Holley 350 Two Barrel into the truck. It came from California and I've removed the smog pump. I'd like to remove all...

  10. Rough 2.9l

    I picked up a 1990 XLT with 4x4 that had been sitting outside for about 4 years not running. Gone through and replaced gas, fuel pump, filter, oil, plugs, injectors, IAC and MAP.... Still idling at around 1200 and kind of bogs a bit on 1st gear and barely gets enough power in 4th and 5th.. Not...

    Hard to start but runs great.

    Hello again, I'm actually posting this for my buddy who just bought a 1988 Ford Ranger Extended Cab 2.9' 4x4 Auto. We picked it up for 3000$ and it's a really nice looking truck. It needs a little bit of work. It was owned by a old gentlemen who owned it for over 10 years. The truck had a...
  12. Questions about 2000 Ranger 4x4

    Ok so the other night I was out on a dirt road and came across an area with about 2 1/2 feet of snow. Basically just to the under side of the motor. Anyways I came to a stop and moved 4x4 selector switch to 4h. When it lit up I tried to move. Nothing happened except what seemed to be tire spin...

    2001 4x4 Woes

    Friends, I'm having trouble with the 4x4 working reliably. I've read some of the troubleshooting about this but I haven't seen this particular scenario discussed. So, when I start the vehicle the 4WD light on the dash doesn't light. The 4x4 Switch does not light with engine running and does not...

    SOLVED: Transfer case end spraying fluid on undercarriage?

    Hey there. 1990 Bii project trying to get to body restore but I'm having 4x4 and apparently transfer case end issue. If you check the attached photo, it appears that I have a leak at what I assume is the rubber piece and it's spraying my undercarriage something fierce. Any idea what the part is...

    SOLVED: 4X4 does not engage at all after new transfer case motor.

    Hello! I swapped out my 4x4 transfer case motor on my 1990 Bronco II XLT and I now have no lights at the dash at all and zero control module actuation. Before the swap the lights would come on for both 4 Hi and 4 Lo and the you could hear the 4x4 control module function. Now there is zero...

    Paint Estimate

    Hey there, I've been a avid fan of 1st and 2nd Gen Rangers for a while now. I got rid of my 88' 2WD Auto a few months ago in hopes of finding a nice 4x4 '5 Speed 83-92 model Ranger. I finally found one, a single cab 83' with the 2.3L, 4x4, '4 Speed Manual. The interior has been redone to black...

    4x4 not working in my 1993 Ford ranger xlt manual v6 4.0L

    My 4wd does not work whatsoever. The only time the 4x4 orange light is illuminated is when I first start the truck and it does it’s test cycle but even then it doesn’t always light up. I replaced the shift motor and even bought a new 4x4 switch off eBay. I can’t seem to figure out what the issue is.
