Hi Stephen,
It has been awhile since I did a 2.9, but the thing that sticks in my
mind is to have a well stocked tool box. The fasteners are metric, so
make sure you have plenty of end wrenches and sockets. You will also
need a selection of extensions, swivels, some deep sockets, and a torque
wrench. The head bolts on the one I did were T-55 (I think) torx. You
will need a GOOD 1/2" drive torx bit and a long breaker or cheater bar.
Get a Snap-on or Mac, I don't sell tools, but a cheap bit will break
when you torque the heads down. Ask me how I know. The proper torque on
the head bolts is real tight and some more! Check your Chilton's.
Starting this job without the proper tools will just lead to
frustration, ruined fasteners, and a bad or incomplete job. Allow
yourself plenty of time, have plenty of light, be out of the weather,
and work clean. Good luck. Buck Shoff

Subject: [small-list] Ranger mileage



Hi folks,

I just replace my '97 Ranger standard cab 4x2 3.0 liter with short bed
truck (was leased), with a 2000 Ranger 4X4 extended cab 4 door 4.0 liter
with the off road package and 4.10 L/S rear (also leased). On the '97, I got
only 14.5 mpg around town; sometimes up to 15 mpg, sometimes worse. My
driving habits seem normal to me, but others in this group had told me they
had done somewhat better. Now with this new truck, I would like to know
what other members of this group average with a similar setup. I expect it
to be worse than the '97 I had, but how much? I love the truck in every way;
it's looks (Toreador Red), and the way it handles, plus the increase in
power.

Thanks,

Bob Leifer

Check your ground (Should be the single exposed pin on the flat four
connector - white wire) on both the truck and the trailer.

I have no trailer lights and don't know what to check next. Any help would
be appreciated.

I know the trailer lights work on a different truck. All the fuses are
good.
The 3' wiring harnes has good conductivity in all four wires. When it's
pluged in I hear the turn signal relays in the "jack storage compartment"
switching. The 7 pin connection and 4 pin connection are clean. I have no
voltage to the end of the 4 pin plug.
In the storage compartment most of the wires are different colors (not br,
gn, yw, wh). I have no wiring diagram.

How can I check the relays? Any other ideas?

There is a fuse for the trailer lights in the fuse box under the hood by the
brake booster.

Subject: Ford 6.75 axle??

From: "Bryce Beyler" <4xFordbigfoot.com>

I was looking over the Advance Adapters page on the Bronco II/Ranger swap
stuff (http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.advanceadapters.com/BUYERSGUIDE/broran.html) and they
mentioned that up until 1985, a 6.75 inch Ford Axle was used in the rear of
Bronco II and Rangers.

Anyone Know anyvalidity to this?? I've never even heard of a 6.75 inch Ford
axle. Anyone know what one would look like? Would it have been used in my
'84 Bronco II?? I was sure I had a 7.5 with 3.73 open.

Bryce
