I have a 91 Ranger with the 3.0L and it is on the Passenger side between the wheel well and the fan blower motor. It is two plugs that are covered with a protective cover. I have had to use it more often than I'd have liked to. Sometimes it falls down against the firewall and can be hard to fish out.

Thanks for the assistance concerning my stuck shifter on my 87 Bronco II.
After taking it apart, I discovered the plastic/nylon actuator rod was
broken, not enabling the pawl to be released forward from the shift-selector
indents. So, I went to my friendly local salvage yard and picked one up for
one dollar! What a deal! Anyway, that was the problem, and again I thank you.

That is in Petersen's 4Wheel and Offroad (current issue)...... which, by
the way, features an article about me and my early Bronco friends at
Sand Lake, Oregon (pgs 108-110).

I am currently setting up another weekend with Petersen's editor for a
Yakima, WA run later this summer. Serious hardcore 'wheeling.

I saw that ranger. The thing is really sweet. I wish I could do
that, but I'll have to stick to my 4.0L.

So the old adage about advice, "that and a dollar will get you a cup of
coffee" should be rewritten as "that and a dollar will fix your truck"!

Subject: RE: third gear slips

If you haven't put in a new clutch yet, you're probably due. I have
an '87 ranger 2.9 5spd and put in my first clutch at 70,000 and my
second at 147,000. You know it's on its way out when it starts to
slip, but may have as much as 10,000 miles left on it before it
completely goes.

Hello,

I'm

been
absolutely perfect so far. It only has 88,000 miles on it and I have
always

Should not have to adapt them as mustang wheels should bolt right up to
your ranger unless you are going with 4 lug set!
