    I'm thinking about getting a 97 ranger for my turbo project and I'll need to put my forged pistons in.. my main question would be while I have the tib out would it be possible or worth it to remove whatever left to drop the pan and get access to the crank?
  7. Removing the Charcoal Canister

    Ok, so this winter was pretty hard on my undercarriage. The spare tire mount has almost rusted completely off. Rather than replace it, I figure I'll just remove the mount and tire and save about 200+ pounds. Only, I found a problem. The charcoal canister is mounted to the spare tire mount; I...

    Where are bolts for AC & Pwr steering mount bracket?

    I am replacing the water pump and read in the Haynes manual that I need to remove the bolt(s) holding the mounting bracket to move the whole assembly out of the way without removing either the AC compressor or the power steering pump. So I am looking but cannot find the correct bolt or bolts to...
