Default Hello Everyone proud owner of 93 ford ranger

Just wanted to say hi and to let everyone know that I have 1993 ford ranger that has seen better days...A little history of my ford ranger 1993. In 1993 my grandfather bought his truck with pride from the lot and the first day I saw it, I was so happy cause it looked so awesome and he gave me a ride in it. Well for the next 13 years, my grandfather and I would spend so many great memories with his truck, going to places, eating and enjoying each other time, and when I would see his truck come to my parents apartment complex parking lot, it was a signal that my grandfather would be coming over. Well the sad part is that he past away in 2006 , yet in his last year of good health, my grandfather gave me his truck and it was mine. I felt honored and emotional cause he took care of that truck for so long, as he said to me, "I took care of it for you to have one day, cause I know you would enjoy it more than me, cause I can't drive a manual anymore", at the time, cause he was having knee problems and not handling the pressure of the clutch. So once I got it in 2005, being 19, was excited and pumped that I had it, yet sad cause I knew that my grandfather won't ever ride with me again. Well five years later, and being young that I was, I took the truck for granted and still keeping the exterior looking clean, not taking care of the engine, well because I was never a repair guy, I had this mentality that I would pay someone to do it. Well in the early part of 2010, my 93 ford ranger gave in, and stop running, funny thing was that it was week before finals of university. Found out that the timing belt blew out...so after a year later, personal and financial dram, and a new car, the ford ranger has been sitting on my drive way. I have been keeping it clean because I know I will get it fixed soon and because now I am determined to get it fixed on my own, also financially wont pay it getting repaired, to make my grandfather proud of me doing myself of replacing the timing belt...that why I'm here

I guess some of you guys ask for specs, but I don't really know truck talk so basically everything is stock, just only a light lift from the back and a push grill attachment.
