Did a little thinking on how I could get this exhaust to work. I think I have a place.

Did an engine flush and oil change. Hopefully plugs and wires next week. Can anyone explain how to adjust my Edelbrock carb to where I get half-ass decent gas mileage? Went 30 miles on the interstate and used 1/8 of a tank.

Default Re: What did you do to your ranger today thread

I just bought my truck Monday, so I've been working on some general maintenance.

I changed the oil in the trans and changed this...



It rides/drives/shifts much better now.

Turning that in will help solve the top of the carb being wet and my loading up problem too right? While helping my mileage hopefully too?

Exclamation Re: What did you do to your ranger today thread

Don't have a garage or covered bit as I live in a Condo complex.
Taking the Truck to a local shop for some parts repair, replacements, upgrades.
Should be ready 2nd wk of Jan., then off to Glass company for windscreen (windshield) and sliding glass fix or maybe wait till it's not steadily COLD.

Default Re: What did you do to your ranger today thread

Had my clutch/master/slave replaced and my flywheel machined two days ago, had it bled at the same shop I got it installed at yesterday because it was hard to get into gear, and took it into Ford this morning and had them bleed my system once more.

Only cost me $75 @ Ford for something I would have spent more in gas going into the shop 2 hours away multiple times for.

Thanks Ford!
