I don't know the brand of the carb. It is sort of oblong shaped on the
top. I have saw these type of carbs on Mustangs before. The air intake
ports are square. It probably has the brand on it somewhere, right?

Try http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.carfax.com/ for title information and
www.kbb.com
www.edmunds.com
www.carpoint.com
www.
for pricing information

Those are the ones I know if the top of my head. Personally I would not by
a vehicle that has been painted unless I knew the exact reason why.

Also before you buy take it to a mechanic of your choosing and have it
checked out. AAA in Washington used to have a service where they would
check out a used vehicle for member... for a reasonable fee. I think it
ran about $50.00 or so.

Subject: FTE Small - O2 Sensor and other questions..

Okay, I haven't been following the O2 sesnsor series, until a few days ago.
And then all I saw was info for BII owners, so if someone has asked about
the Rangers, sorry :) Anyways, I have a 91 Ranger w/ the 2.3L The check
engine light has come on a few times in the past few months, but never for
more than 2 minutes and never more than 2 times a day. Its not my air
filter, as I just cleaned my K&N. I've been thinking of replacing the 02
sensor, but don't want to spend money on something that is not needed. I'm
getting 22 mpg, which i consider to be great for an 8 year old truck. Is
this right? Should it be more? I figured if my O2 was out, I'd be getting
bad MPG, but this is not the case. Id'd really like to avoid taking it in to
Ford, as we have one of those notorious Ford service centers....Any ideas
appreciated...

Subject: FTE Small - 1995 Ranger Catalytic Converter

Hello,

I am currently looking for the factory setup for the cataltic converters
for my 1995 Ranger Splash V-6 3.0L. If anyone has one or knows where I can
get anything that will directly bolt on (I really don't want to spend alot
of time trying to weld up a universal one so that it fits), please let me
know. Thanks.

I'm guessing that it's the Holley/Weber.

RedLine Industries probably makes a smog-legal Euro-Weber replacement kit
for it that's probably about $200.

I've used these on Vegas, Pintos, Subarus, and Toyotas.. always had good
luck with them.
Only problem I found was that the Holley accelerator pump diaphram (black
neopreney type) is far better than the Weber (red rubber). Pull the one off
the holley and use it if it fits and is in good shape.

Most good parts houses can get them, but the ones specializing in imports
are more apt to have them in stock.

Subject: FTE Small - Glasspack muffler question

Me again...
Just wondering if anyone has seen any (online preferred) vendors that sell a
glasspack muffler with dual outlets (or a y-pipe on it) so that I can have
two seperate pipes exiting in the rear. If you know or have any ideas,
e-mail me or post to the list. Thanks in advance..
