  1. 2001 Ford Ranger

    Found this one super cheap off craigslist. 2wd s/c auto . Has what's left of a 3.0 v-6 under the hood i have had v-8 Rangers before, has any one here done a ls or other engine swap besides a 5.0 ?
  2. 2001 Ford Ranger

    Pulled the bed, switched fuel systems to a return style. re mounted the rear sway bar end top links, like this set up better, 1 inch ish thick wall sleeve and 7/16 grade 8 bolts. disreguard the weld splatter at the frame rail, cleaner set up should work better. getting close

    I have a new not rebuilt HX35 on the shelf if you pull the trigger on that one. ended up going bigger
  4. 2001 Ford Ranger

    I have both, the problem is the non-return run at 85 psi and the return style from the donor efi runs at 45-50psi. I have the pump and quick connect fittings in hand so , just doing it correctly so this pig will run.

    These are the mounts that attach to the block and then you have to use 2wd 4.0 mounts that attach to the frame. I got these used off the interweb, blasted and sprayed silver so you can see the bolts when the engine is installed , again, it's tight and it makes that job a little easier if you can see what is going on Well the majority of the tough stuff is done engine is on new mounts and in the giant trans in a tiny truck is in and bolted up (that was NOT fun) and you have to do the 2 separate so ya big fun there. Have to pull the bed to change the fuel pump to a return style pump to match the donor system any luck I can fire it up on Friday when we have the day off

    The progress continues had to have a special power steering hose made to Change the frame mounts on a front coil spring ranger you have to remove the f--n coil springs. on the 4x4 and torsion bar models there is room to get to the bolts with out taking stuff apart the engine is in the truck, but most likely will have to come back out for a mount adjustment. and yes putting a fully dressed v-8 into a a ranger is tiiiiiight.

    Anger update old rear diff is out, new 8.8 is in, 3:73 gear, disc brakes, rear sway bar and over rider traction bars in progress the old diff sat under the springs, the explorer diff sits on top so you also get a 4" rear ride height drop as a bonus.

    It's kind of like buzzaro Ranger world how this one is going out of town again all week , will continue next weekend.
  15. 2001 Ford Ranger

    Pulled the biohazard of the Mountianeer out of the mudhole spot next to the garage where it's been since Joey dropped it off started to pull it apart to get its V-8 goodness out well...... Again I have not really looked at this one except to make sure it started and ran before taking apart and here comes a surprise to keep in the course of this build this one that was thought and is badged all over as a all wheel drive is well in fact 2wd converted and whoever did it left all the 4wd front axles etc... But not transfer case... So bonus to me I don't have convert the trans.
  16. 2001 Ford Ranger

    I got from Joey is the white one that one actually runs it's just been hit by a tree the green one I bought off craigslist no title runs good the guy thought it was a 2 Wheel Dr. so I don't look at it it starts right up runs good I was good no engine noise back it up do a burn out OK it works great give the 500 Bucks Drive it home put it in the driveway started to take it apart today and I started with saws all in the exhaust and I look at ,oh God damn this is a all wheel drive also the all-wheel-drive just doesn't work so I have two all-wheel-drive when I thought I had one all wheel drive and 1 2Wheel Dr. but oh well I have the parts for the conversion of the trans it'll just take another few days
