There is an '87 Ranger that my bank is taking bids on, and I've always kinda
wandered what it would be like to have one of these little trucks with a HOT 302
or maybe a 351W in it. Will either of them fit with out too much modification
to the front??? I don't have a clue as to how it is currently equipped?? Don't
know if I will even bid on it if you guys tell me it will accept the small V8s,
but I've always been curious. If it is equipped well and has a good body, and
will accept the small V8, I might try it.

They will fit, seen it done, can't tell from the outside that he's even
changed it (other than the exhaust note of course) ... he turned that into
one mean auto-x truck ... before the "sport truck" craze hit he had it
lowered and huge tires on it (255/50's ?) the thing cornered better than my
stang ... it was amazing...

I can't say I have any experience swapping a 302 into a Ranger but I have
put a nameless V8 into another nameless vehicle and it's a lot of fun.
Anyway, Advance Adapters has beaucoup experience in putting V8s in Bronco
Alsos and Rangers. Their catalog, they call it a buyers guide, is free

Being in the business of email at a corporate level l second Ken's response.
Just as some individuals don't realize you have got to change the oil others
don't realize how much work that running an email system is. The rules are
there for a reason and IMHO extremely reasonable and well administrated.

Thanks Ken for providing a way for us all to discuss Trucks.

Azie,
There are several companies that make swap kits for the ranger. Look in
Truckin', Sport Truck, or even Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords for companies
that make these kits. I personally know a couple of guys that have done these
swaps without much hassle and their trucks are daily drivers. One of them was
featured in Hot Rod magazine. He has a warmed over carburated 302 and it runs
in the low 12's in the 1/4 mile. Email me off list and i'll get his number
for you.

Some one on this list once wrote about using voltage measurements
taken from the wiring to interpret the factory trouble codes.
If this is possible please share info.
ThanX

I would have to dig out the details -- I think I remember seeing this in
the Chilton's manual for a Taurus. Basically you use an ANALOG volt meter
on the diagnostic out terminal of the test connector and connect the
diagnostic input to the other test lead. You'll see the meter sweep for the
pulses, but this trick won't work with a digital volt meter since you can't
be sure that the meter will update at the right time. You should be able to
use a small test lamp instead of the meter, and some vehicles will flash
the "check engine" lamp.

Let me know if you want me to dig out the book...
