Once you get your write up done you should email it to jim oaks (owner/founder?) And he may put it in the tech library. That would be kinda cool. But im on my phone too and all the pics look normal to me lol

Almost complete, everything is in turns over, but no fuel pressure, got a code saying secondary fuel circuit high and the fuel gauge says it's completely full when i know for sure its empty. Gonna throw in a new pump- its not running when i turn the key on. Needs a new one anyways. Anyone know if the bad pump would make the gauge read full all the time?

So ran into a few minor problems on it today, you learn something every time you turn around with this thing, first issue that had to be solved was the starter relay's ground- it gets it through the PATS module. So i had to cut the blue/orange wire and run it to ground. Second the A/C controls in the PCM are wired differently from 97 to 00 and i found that out the hard way and lit my compressor clutch on fire last night. FML!!

Have a question for anyone out there: The small coolant lines that run from the heater lines on top of the block up to the intake manifold- What do they do? I broke one of the small ends on the metal line and have a small coolant leak despite trying to fix it with JBWeld. Any ideas? can i just get rid of them or should i be buying a new one?

So this transmission is from a 97 f-150 and the shifter is a little farther forward than the stock ranger r1

I don't know, but if it was me I would probably replace those coolant lines you were talking about.
