Re: 88 ranger high pressure pump air leak?

yes it's by-passable. follow the wire from the high pressure pump up to the firewall, you'll find an inline connector that you can 12v to. for that you will want to run a relay as you'd by-pass the...

Re: Engine swap

4.0 is the same bell as 2.9l but wiring no matter what you swap in is going to need addressed. 4.0 is wider and taller, so obviously exhaust will need a game plan.

Re: 2.9 v6 idles good in park but bogs down when accelerated

40 is max on the spec, 50 is too high. it will make a difference, friend of mine had an adjustable regulator running at around 50psi and it was way too rich

Re: HO Alternator with smaller pulley and need belt help

the tension is variable since it's a spring, too long of belt = less tension.. going to slip bad if it gets wet, and that's no fun =/

Re: Noisy 2.9L

they used heavier oil to do exactly what you have done w/ adding the lucas, trying to mask the problem. i don't think it caused any additional damage, but that's just my opinion. these engines aren't...
