Nice Ranger for that age usually when I see something like that its rotted right out and ready for the scrap yard. Although there was a guy building houses in my neighbor hood who had a nice Ranger like yours but he re did it from the ground up looks like it was bought off a car lot.

Hell go to Autozone and get a copy of AllData for the 87 Ranger. It's 27.00 for a year but will be invaluable for your rebuild. I concur jy motor. Call some local mechanics and get advice on reputable junkyards.

Well crap seems I'm a day late and a dollar short DUDE post pics and 1/4 mi. times already sheesh!!!

well the garage the trucks in isnt mine, and i can only work on it when the owners around, so we work on it about once a week.

so is there any trick on getting the timing belt on and everything timed correctly?
