  6. 84 Ranger 4.0 swap

    I’m going from a carb’d 2.8 to the 4.0 OHV out of a 94 Ranger. I know that I should swap gas tanks for one with a fuel pump, but I’m wondering if I can just go with an in-line pump and keep my original tank. Found one on jegs 43psi so that’s right in the ballpark, but do I have to get a pressure...

I read somewhere that even if I could get it to fit physically the sending unit runs on a different...

  14. NEWB: fuel system

    So I just bought and '87 ranger with the 2.9 in it. I couldn't get it to start and have narrowed it down to being a fuel issue.

  18. Too Lean ... Bad Regulator?

    I have been getting a "too lean" MIL code on both banks and while I preemptively replaced the O2 sensors, that did not fix the issue. So, I dug into the problem and have eliminated a vacuum leak (checked with a pressure gauge ... stayed in green under all conditions except fast / high rev of...
