Re: Oil Guage jumped peg

I used a very small brad nail, painted black, as a stop, so when the needle goes wacky again, it will swing and strike that little post and not be able to go all the way around. A drop of glue holds...

Re: Drum Brake replacement Problem

I forgot to mention that we did back that off, so we assumed we had nothing left we could adjust.

Drum Brake replacement Problem

We had the hardest time with what should have been a straight-forward brake shoe replacement. The first set of replacement shoes had the right part number, but were different enough from the old...

Re: arm rest for '99 B2500

I just want to cover the cost of mailing it. With bracket it is heavier. Figured someone could use this part. It is clean and without a tear.

The original cover loaded up with grime over time and...

Re: arm rest for '99 B2500

I changed my broken-down driver seat for a bucket, so I have the center arm rest with bracket. Thought I'd ask $20 just to be sure it would cover the cost of mailing it.
Gray, from my 2000 ranger. ...

Re: Oil pressure gauge in cluster issue

When my needle jumped like that, I took it apart and put the needle back to its normal place, but it jumped it again within a few weeks. So I added a small brad (wire) nail as a stop on the high...

Re: radio bezel

I got one from the Pull-it yard for a few bucks (less than $4). Before you pay a lot for one and have to pay postage as well, get to a JY and look for one.

Re: What do you carry as your CCW?

I miss the S&W m19 i used to carry under my left arm. I like the .357 magnum a lot. These days, for a small carry I like the Ruger LC9. The Smith & Wesson was not too heavy to carry all day in a...

Re: Two passenger seats

Last time I was at my area pull-it yard, I considered the two middle bucket seats from a Ford minivan. They were clean, probably little used. I wondered if they'd fit the tracks and work in place...

Re: Two passenger seats

Your seatbelt and adjust lever are on opposite sides. I think the seatbelt might be made to attach to the right side, but your adjust lever will be on the inside, making any kind of console...

Re: Reinstall new headliner

Like the look of the headliner with camo. I'd probably choose a snow camo look.

Re: What did you do to your ranger today thread III

Love the Pull-it Yard!

Got an antenna, (my reason for going yesterday) but found a tailgate off of a '99 stepside in the same color as my truck. It has less rust/scratches than my original. My...

Re: 300,000 miles club

Just passed 260 thousand yesterday. Original engine (3.0) but swapped a tranny last winter, about 4000 miles ago.

I still get great mileage, averaging 23 highway, and I think it could make it to...

Re: 06 dash disassembly

I suggest you do all mods to the cluster once you have it out of the truck. Thinking of other stuff to do to it later will only mean you have to go through the process over again.

On mine, I had...

Re: How to fix this oil gauge ?

Here is what I did: the first time the needle spun around like that, I took the cluster out and used a stout wire to slip in and move the needle back to the post on the right.
