My credo
i come here to ask questions about the Bonnie’s quirks
what are the similarities and differences between a bronco ii’s exhaust and a rangers exhaust? the manifold/headers? in my 90 ranger are cracked in multiple places but the ones off a 90 bronco ii in the yard are in very good condition other than that i haven’t looked under the truck to see how they differ from each other, both have the infamous 29 under the hood.

I looked both vehicles up on rockauto. They sell new exhaust manifolds and they seem to both use the same numbers, left is 674222 and right is 674221. Don't go to the junkyard and pay more than new, they are around $75.00 new and then you need to add shipping to that.

A legend to the old man, a hero to the child...
To my knowledge all 2.9 manifolds are the same

Yeah. Not all have a purge solenoid.

It's pin 11 or 31....and not a big thing before 89

Likely it don't....I don't remember them having one....but the 3.0 did. One of the things to mod using that pcm for maf conversion.

But my memory not always right.

2.9 was straight captain cavepig...tube goes from charcoal can to a fitting by throttle body

That's the way my 86 was. You can easily see it. On the drivers side there is a plastic line that goes from the canister to a fitting under the throttle body. The airflow through the throttle body purged the canister any time the engine was running.
