    Starting Issues with my '86

    So, I bought my 1986 Ranger XLT over half a year ago. in January, I had an engine from an '87 B2 installed by a reputable shop. Now I'm having 3 issues that are more than likely linked in some way. First, the truck doesn't "kick off" in the traditional sense. More like it just "sustains"...
