Default Introduction

Hey Folks,

I'm obviously new here. I have owned my Ranger since 1997 and have used it as a parts getter, daily driver, spare ride, and now a work truck. I'm a technologist who works in the field sometimes and need a reliable truck to haul my tools that gets half way descent gas mileage.

The truck has a bad clutch and I'm about to push it into my garage and pull the transmission. I expect I'll replace everything and resurface the flywheel while it's out but might get some advice first. The most advanced repairs I've done on my own were the front brakes on this vehicle.

I've used Archoil products in the past and wonder if anyone else uses them in the Ranger community?

1997 Ranger 2.3L 2WD Black with side-step bed.
