Does anyone know what the ratios are for the two 5sp's that were
available in the 1990 4wd rangers? I have a 2.9 if that makes any
differance. Thanks for any help.

I was hoping I could find somebody on the list who has replaced the wheels on
their Ranger or Explorer with aftermarkets and is willining to unload the
factory ones for a price. I need some new wheels for my BII. It would be great
if you could reply to me personally. Thanks.

Subject: SUPERCHARGERS

Someone mentioned that Eaton makes Superchargers and you are correct. I don't work in that division, but they make the most of two sizes. The M112 is designed for the Jaguar XJR with a 4.0L V8 and the M-16 which is designed for 0.6 Liter to 1.3 Liter engines. I will check to see if the M112 is available to the public, what the cost is, and if it can be used on the 4.0L Push-rod or SOHC Ford engine. (I'll also see if I can get an employee discount...HeHe.) Keep you eyes on this list.

Well, talk about bad timing. I just sold mine this week after trying to
sell them for the past year and a half. I had the 5 Teardrop Design that
came on the Explorers and Rangers for 96 as an option. I even had
31x10.5x15 mud tires on them. Sorry, if I would have known, I would have
let you know about them.

Hey, if you don't think you'll have any problems with NOS than get it. I
would tell who ever buys one to talk to people who have used it. I obviously
am never going to proove my point that NOS will inevitably cause damage to
your engine. However, like I said before, many of my friends have bought it
and sold there cars with about 60,000 miles on them because eventually you
either push it to hard or you just use it too often. If you don't agree
that's great. I feel your doing people an injustice when the ask about it if
you don't tell them there is a risk involved. Later guys...oh yeah, anybody
here added on power steering. What kind of a job is it. (Also, if you know
why the Ford decided not to include power steering on a vehicle made in the
90's please let me know. I must say that having standard steering and a stick
is annoying at best)

I added power steering to my '87. It wasn't too hard. The only unexpected
part was having to cut a notch in a bracket to clear my mechanical fuel
pump, but
that shouldn't be a problem if your truck was built in the '90's(EFI)

I had it, but it is now replaced with turbo.

Agreed

My basic point was that it would be no more, and probably less damage
than equivelant forced induction setups.

I agree, but that warning should go with any power adder. It's easier
to fry your motor with boost than nitrous. Any heavy power adder, setup
incorrectly, will cause engine damage.
