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

Re: Being realistic. Need Advice

Re: Plastidipped whole truck

Plastidip is nice, bit once it's compromised you have to redo the entire area. My room-mate plastidipped his hub caps and put several coats on it in excess of 5. Somehow there was a deep scrape on it...

Re: Being realistic. Need Advice

Well I didn't change the fluid or filter, but I pumped out at least a gallon of black fluid. Shouldn't be that black for all I know so something is burning up. Put fresh fluid in with some...

Being realistic. Need Advice

Well my Ranger got back from the shop and apparently the fuel-pump fuse was missing and the old distributor just needed to be cleaned since the new one I bought was the broken one. Thanks a lot...

Re: The "what do you hate about your Ranger today" thread

Thanks. Turns out that and the entire distributor is broke and I have a cracked cylinder head. Won't be driving the truck for a long while. Guess It needs a new motor...

Re: The "what do you hate about your Ranger today" thread

Well he started up normally; I put him into drive and moved 2 feet before the engine died and a zapping noise and a large cloud of white smoke and burning plastic came from under the hood. I stopped...

Re: "Riley" 86 Ranger 2.9L 2WD Automatic

Here's how I'll be mounting the unit. I already mounted the cup-holders like this. I feel it'll last longer and be more robust than just self-tapping to the damn floor.

Re: "Riley" 86 Ranger 2.9L 2WD Automatic
