Thumbs up Well Hello!!!!

Hi there Im Nate
So I have a 1985 Ranger w/a rebuilt 2.3 with a little work done to it.
It also has a 5 1/2 inch custom lift that will be torn out soon to put a 4-link suspention and 8.8 with 4:10 gears and dana 30 front with 4-link and jeep coils all around...
I will pissibly be puting in dual transfer cases if i can figure out how.
I havent got it running yet and i think its the timming.
Does anyone know the absolute correct way to set the timing?

welcome!

timing....get a chiltons manual or if you know someone,get a shop manual
i've browsed through the chiltons at work and they roughly show you how to time.
it will at least get you in the ballpark.

its been almost 3 years since i built my 87 so i have little recollection on how to do it....but i had a 2.3l shop manual (bible) when i built mine and it made everything so much easier

Welcome Nate! The manual is definately the way to go for timing. I'm real curious about the dual transfer case idea, Ive done a little bit of searching and really wanna see one done on a ranger.
