Default Re: need pricing

Welcome Tony, Glad you found us. Have fun and enjoy FRF.Some times it's cheeper to buy new than rebuild, thats so true when I wanted to have my son's Engine and tranny redone, And I got a 3 year 36,000 mile wty, on a create motor from Jegs on an 84 vehicle. To me if it was my ranger it's a good time to do a v8 swap. I bought a donner v8 explorer the same year as my ranger with low miles that was hit in the rear, CHEEP. You have a lot of choices if you are planning to keep it.

Depending on your level of mechanical abilities, the experience may be worth the extra efforts. Crate engines would be the absolute quickist and less methodical approach as well as the least complicated in errors; at least it should be.

Although, a $3000 price tag for such an endeavor for stock, unless thats what your totally after, I understand. But with some effort, a few tools, an engine stand from Harbor fright for $75 and some time to fill your days and late nights you could have the satisfaction of doing it yourself, perhaps making some upgrades along the way too. I picked up an entire long black 4.0L OHV with 86k on the clock up for $260 plus the $40 in gas it took me for the trip to fetch it. I stumble across deals all the time.

I'm in a little less of a hurry with the same mileage on my truck or more now and its a 93'. Ive gotten it stripped down to basically the bare block minus the timing chain and crank pulled. I am doing a full restoration with exception to just better pistons in the lower end. rods and wrist pins will be fine for my needs, I dont plan on going for more than my 300hp goal...

as for the trans, check out the Drivetrain area on here. it may be something as simple as a shift solenoid or a trans flush to cure the issue...

Just my $ .02
