Default My second ranger - Red headed stepchild

Hello all
I'm a middle-aged do-it-yourselfer wanna-be and will likely be drawing on your knowledge and experience often. I just bought a ranger with hopes that it was ready to go . . . not! A decent looking red 93 splash 4x4 137k with regular wear and slight damage - 1500 bucks. (not bad) By the time I got it home the proported new clutch was not releasing and it soon developed starting issues. Two bald tires, awful allignment, no radio . . .long story short, four weeks later I'm rolling without worrying and 1500 turned into 2600. Now my four wheel drive is not engaging due to a sluggish electric motor. (sheesh) I am thankful to find a place with instruction and advice specific to my new money pit. (which I LOVE to drive) Thanks in advance for the help.
Brian

RedRanger - welcome from another new guy! Middle-aged? Ft. Wayne? Hmmm .... I'm middle-aged and I grew up in Ft. Wayne. Drop me a PM if you'd like.
Regards,
Don
