Default New user with Old Ranger!!

I have put a quick description of my truck in my sig. I have had Loretta for a little over three years now. I bought her from my dad for 500 bucks. Due to the low value of my truck I pick up a Haynes Manual and am learning how to do mechanical work with this truck. Having a pickup has come in handy on many occasions and I plan on keeping my truck after I get a new car. My dad has a lawncare business and has always used Ford Rangers for his work, and I always thought that they were cool little trucks. My brother had a custom Ranger for his first car. Mostly body mods and a HUGE audio system.

I hope to learn alot from the forums and plan on posting my projects when I do them. Just keep in mind, that I am a DIY mechanic and have no background in cars. (This is my first interest in cars really.) So I may need things dumbed down sometimes :-) Thanks!!

I have a 1990 Keystone Ranger 2wd with a 2.9L, V6. She's a beater and I named her Loretta. In the past 2 years I have replaced the battery, starter, starter solenoid, radiator, alternator, and the driveplate. Little things that I have replaced include all the mirrors, spark plugs, in dash radio, headlights, air filter and brakes. Would like to start modding her and adding some performance parts
