The axle of choice seems to be the D44. Check out www.therangerstation.com for information.

And if you can find a 96 and newer Explorer V8 AWD wrecked in the rear to
scrounge it from, it should be a direct bolt in!

I don't think any thig off of a '96 or newer Explorer is a "direct bolt in"
on any of the Rangers (maybe a '97 and newer)...they use that new SLA
torsion bar set up. The TTB Dana 35 from a pre '95 Explorer (or 4.0L
Ranger) would be a bolt in with some simple mods (u joints and stuff like
that) in a 83-97 Ranger and any BII. The rear axle would need the spring
perches and shock mounts relocated to use in a Ranger/BII. But this keeps
you with a TTB IFS set up

But this guy wants a solid axle. It looks like the one of Choice is a Dana
44 from an Early Bronco (Pre '78 Big Bronco style) and the Ford 9 inch in
the rear, so bolt patterns match on the wheels. Full sixe axles have been
used, but are quite a bit wider than the Ranger and make the wheels stick
way out.

Yes, I misunderstood the previous post about the later model front
axles. I do need a solid front, So the pre 78 Bronco looks like the one.

Sorry to be a pest, but I saw a Thunderbird in the salvage yard, that has a 3.8L V-6. The Thunderbird is a mid-80s model. It would be an easier package to install than the 5.0L, and probably have sufficient power for me. Does any body know any thing about this engine?? Does it have a good reliability record? Is it Port injected??

Thanks

Just a quick thought in passing; if the bleeder screws are not opened before
pressing the pistons back debris can enter the ABS unit and hold valves open.
Since the light was on intermittently beforehand, I don't think this would be
the single problem though but could've made an existing problem worse.

I did find a few references to that, one of the few in English was
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.brickboard.com/ARCHIVES/1998JUN/20003695.shtml
assuming he is correct, it is 88% R-13a, 9% R-218, and 3% R-600a. It appears
to be primarily for sale in non-U.S. countries. Hey.. if it works stick with
it! Might also want to post on air-condition.com in the general or
alternatives forums for feedback on it.

Should do the trick for you but might take a little bit of tinkering.

Check advanced adapters WebSite, you'll have to send them e-mail but as I
recall they do have adapters for the trooper. Unfortunately GM was in bed
with Isuzu so it would probably be easier to use a GM product for the swap.

I've heard that it is a "doable" swap, but getting a trans and x-fer case combination to work is a bit of a problem if its 4x4. If its a 4x2, have fun...

Does anybody know what and if a 4WD transmission and transfer case would
bolt to this?? Will the AOD tranny bolt to it?? What did it come with?

Subject: Antifreeze leak
Date: Thu, 25 May 2000 13:06:14 -0700

Sorry it's not a ford. My Daughter has a 1984 Buick Century V6 3.0l. The
radiator had a hole in it and the cap was bad and the thermostat was stuck
closed. I replaced the radiator, cap and thermostat. I started the car and
noticed water leaking from the water pump. I replaced the water pump and
started it again. Once again there is a smaller leak from some where behind
the water pump pulley. It's impossible to see behind the pulley. Any
comments? Are the freeze plugs near the pump ? Or could it be a head
gasket. I haven't noticed any steam coming from the exhaust or water in the
oil. Any help would be appreciated.

Brian
