Default How-to: OHC install in older Rangers (96)

Written By: mfernandes

Discussion Thread: How-to: OHC install in older Rangers (96)



I followed the OHC install instructions from "mossyoak03" which can be found here:

http://www.fordrangerforum.com/inter...e-install.html

The problem is that on older rangers (mine is a 96) the mounting plate wont fit like explained on the "how-to", you need to modificate it!

In the picture below, you can see the 2 mounting holes for the screws should be moved. This is, you need to drill 2 new holes near the mounting tabs in order to fit this plate in place.



After you drill those 2 new holes, the rest of the installation is exactly the same as explained on the tutorial (I run the wires of the OHC threw the right A pilar, and the Autodim mirror threw the left A pilar)

Some pictores of them installed;







This is where i mounted the exterior temp. sensor; theres already a hole which has exactly the same diameter as the sensor bracket, will fit stright in!





I think if you have an older Ranger and you want to install this great mod... this is a very important information you should consider... you wont have headaches!!!
