well made a bit of progress this weekend, i fiddled with some electrical problems and got most of them sorted out except the fact the reverse lights are on all the time in neutral but turn off when i put it in any gear even reverse idk what its deal is. but i did finally get it to run and stay running for a couple minutes but it's runnin richer than jeff bezos. it won't be moving under its own power till spring when i can get the new ring gear installed so i can just hop in and turn the key to start it insted of fiddlefucking with it for an hour to make it run.

Fun fact, some early rangers had a neutral switch AND a reverse switch on the transmission, usually with different connectors but it would be worth looking up there for two two pin connectors to see if they look the same...
