Sport Trac. Its going to be for my daughter once I get it sorted out. From what I understand it has a bad cam and it happened after new timing chains were installed...

Yeah it looks pretty good underneath too, I was concerned about rust because Ohio vehicles are known for it.

I was actually looking into them last week. They are expensive and all seem to have 100k on the clock. I would love a manual one too, but they're real rare.

Default Re: towed another one home today but its not a Ranger

Just a little update....I got her purin like a kitten. The drivers side cam had jumped time because there was no oil in it...Let me explain... When I got it the plugs were out and the ds valve cover was off. The first thing I did was put it back together to see what the deal was. Well it was atleast 3 quarts low on oil(I checked it before I even tried to start it) It ran but had no power. This is my first SOHC motor so I did some online research. From what I read online I suspected the primary timing chain had jumped so I took the front of the motor apart and it was in time and the guides were good. After some head scratching and comparing online photos I figued the cam was out on the ds. I set it on TDC and reset the cam and it runs great now... For those not familiar with the SOHC timing chains, they use a tensioner that is pressurized by oil pressure, without oil pressure it can't keep the chain tight. But I have been dealing with a title issue and I have not messed with it much. I finally got the title today! I should have it on the road monday...
