Re: will 1986 4wd ford ranger rims fit a 1988 2wd

Bolt pattern should be the same, center hole might be bigger on the 4x4 wheels, and are both trucks disk or drum brakes?

Re: Long storie short 2.0 2.3 bell housing bolt patterns

2.0 and 2.3 look exactually the same, except for the different exhaust manafold and one barrel carb, but with a 2.0 in a 4x4, you might not get out of 3rd gear with hubs locked in.

There is a fuel pump cut off under the mat or behind the kick panel on the passenger side, might check that.

One little led bulb on the controler would take years to drain a battery.

Re: Trailer brake 12v always hot

Re: 1988 F&R shocks question

Some rangers used heavy cast metal type I beams, some used stamped steel ones, might be something to do with which one you have.

Re: Tow truck put it in neutral, shifter still in park?

Roll under it from the drivers side and see if he just popped the cable off the ball stud, or used cable cutters and cut it off, or dropped the drive shaft.

Re: 3.0 to 4.0 swap...doable?

The 3.0 trans won't bolt to the 4.0 engine, if you get a 4.0 manual, guessing you'd need a 4.0 flywheel, might have to get a computer for a 4.0 and manual, like you say, it won't be a plug and play.

Re: Is this a vaccuum line? What is it? Replacement?

If the lines were hooked to the intake and not plugged, nothing would stay in them, as vacum would suck it into the engine.

Re: Is this a vaccuum line? What is it? Replacement?

That looks like the main vacum line, it comes from the intake manifold, goes to a vacum canister, then to inside the cab for heater controls. The vacum can could be broken, that would cause a poor...

Re: no MFG bypass safety hole on coolant temp gauge

I wouldn't think that size hole would let much coolant through as a safety feachture, might be it's there to help bleed out air after a coolant or thermostat change.

Re: Crank & cam seals

Always had good luck with felpro, most all are good, things have to be clean, and carful not to distort or nick seals driving them in.

Re: Rough idle

All cylinders should have a close reading, if one is considerably lower, that would be cause for missfire and bad running.

Re: 2000 3.0 blew up

Most likley getting it that hot the heads are cracked, but you gotta pull them to check the gaskets, so you can have them checked for cracks and warped, and have a look at the cylinder condition.
