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

Changed starter (in o degree weather). Hope that is end of starting issues, and used generous amounts of dielectric grease. Couldn't get the plastic cover back on terminals, oh well. Also did coil mod seems like better low end torque. Tried to reduce slack in throttle cable but zip ties from O'Reily's were junk and the tabs broke off everyone.
