Default Diesel Ranger owner

I just discovered this forum while looking for info on my 87 Ford Ranger Diesel.

I'm retired military and collect military vehicles.....primarily M35A2's (Deuce and a Half's) and varients there of.

I love the multi-fuel capability of the deuces.

I go to Jacksonville State University in Alabama majoring in Public Relations. When I retired I was a Master Sergeant and was in charge of the Public Affairs Office for a Training Support Division.

Most of my time I putter around with my vehicles and attend a few military vehicle collector rallys every year.

If you like MV's you need to check out http://www.steelsoldiers.com/

My screen name is the same over there.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

It is in fact a turbo diesel Mitsubishi diesel.

I had never seen a diesel Ranger before I found this one...it belonged to a neighbor of mine that bought and sold vehicles.....he also owned a resturant and gave me all his used veggie oil......in the summer I run 50/50 diesel/veggie in the Ranger and it runs great.

While it is not a blue streak on the highway it will move out pretty good if you stand on it and wind the gears out (5 speed).

Since gas and diesel prices are headed north now I want to use the Ranger for running around in when I don't need air conditioning.

It has an exhaust leak and most of the gauges don't work but since I have nothing but time now I plan to do some maintainence on it.

Again....thanks for the welcome.
