  1. 86 V-8 Ranger drag truck

    Going back together
  2. Well my sight unseen craigslist Ranger was delivered tonight. fresh from the backwoods of Alabama. it was dirt cheap with title, took a quick look at it tonight, o-boy small block Chevy 350? With a th350 trans. Wired by 3 blind monkeys but some 1/2 way decent parts. Drag Radials, Flowmasters, misc chrome and a giant tach with shift light shoved in the dash. get it running and decide how rowdy to go with the spray. last pic is concept(in my head anyway)

    Current status of 2019 drag season, i knew that something had gone horribly wrong. would not stay running and would back fire and pop out of the exhaust cam and lifters are trash
  5. 86 V-8 Ranger drag truck

    They were all over tightened, reset all the valves, magically compression came back, now just replace the **** carburetor and battery. engine popped over and ran not he gas that was poured down the carb. fuel pump is working, just not the edelbrock carb
  6. 86 V-8 Ranger drag truck

    possible the worst HP chev head, crap heads + too big of a cam + excessive rpm = 0 compression. it seems this engine has seen a substantial RPM event and bent a bunch of valves. these heads were headed for the dumpster anyway anybody have some good aftermarket alum. chevy heads for sale.

    I have an extra set of cobra wheels if you are wanting a "track set" of wheels and tires on reserve. 4 wheels 3 have worn tires , one bare rim nice set , not perfect $ 600.00
  10. The Falcon got its hot side mostly fabbed in today the merge plate is a t4 divided flange (for the eventual turbo) with a t3 adaptor for the hx35 that is on it now, the turbo was free and new so...... shorty headers flipped forward and 2.5 inch mild steel piping. go ahead and let the beatings begin about whatever the big book of turbos says I did wrong , but for @200.00 bucks for the entire hot side including turbo I'll take it. and yes I still have to fab up the waste gate. thanks

    Disney, same events more that once happened , that pesky separate Black ECM wire under the battery that always comes loose when the unknowing change batteries on these cars. I had one guy get so mad the car had set for 6 months, the guy threw a hammer thru the drivers window when the car started after I showed him the wire that he had missed.
