I have a 94 but are there other years that have the same harness going to the engine? It would seem to be 2 different harnesses 1 that goes to injectors and one goes to most everything else. Mine seems to be having problems with several bad wires and , it has been a bit since I messed with it but the ground is bad for sure,looks oxidized. I hate to put used wire back in but not even sure what part numbers to look for. If I could look for a couple different years may be easier?Thanks for any help. I really dont want to try an build one.

1994 was last year for the 60 wire EEC-IV computer, so it would have to be an older harness, 1989-1994

I don't think there were many changes in those years on the 2.3l Lima Rangers

'93-94 are basically the same, both have the EGR flow sensor and MAF, '90-92 had an EGR position sensor and MAF and '89-early '90 had a MAP sensor and EGR position sensor unless atuomatic transmission then no EGR. '89 had neutral sensor in the trans but that got dropped around '90 I think (my '89 donor had it, '90 body did not which was built in '89 and had MAP not MAF). There's various changes around '92 related to the trans and dash wiring, even my '89 and 90 swap project I did like 15 years ago had some pinout differences between the two...

There arent any pinouts for a 94 2.3 in the tech section. I may just get a whole harness off ebay and replace it all. They are under 200. bucks and new. I'm planing on putting a carbed 302 in it but was looking for an easy wiring solution. I'm color blind and hate doing anything that resembles wiring...
