Go to www.kustomz.com/ on the internet and you will see Kurtz Kustomz'
homepage.
Pretty cool stuff there. I can't legally use any of it, but, if my Ranger
and I ever leave this state...
I'll keep after the K&N guys as well on the replacement air induction kit
that they're supposedly working on...

From: "The Mahlers"
Subject: FTE Small - That 90 Ranger...

Hello,

Mr. Armstrong, thanks for the search effort:-).

Last Friday a $2000 deposit was given due to the word of a mechanic that
all was well. Turns out that the Ranger has a muffler hole, needs a
complete tune-up, two valve cover leaks fixed and needs all new shocks for
slightly rocking side to side while sitting in the drivers seat caused the
rocking.

There is another 1997 Ranger XLT for sale for $8090 with 40,000 miles
and a extended 3 year 36,000 bumper to bumper warranty I might purchase.

Good luck and if you are ever fishing out of Bass River (hint) there is some
great flounder there:-)

Just means everything's still working well on the exhaust emissions.
(or the shop is cheating) ;-) What readings for HC, CO2 & O2? If all
is well I'd expect around 0-1% CO, 0-200 ppm HC, 13-15% CO2 & 1-3% O2
The tailpipe emissions are 'post cat' so the CO gets converted to CO2 &
O2; now if you sampled before the converter you would have a CO reading
more along what you expect.

Even in a shop with pipe and bender available I still dislike

I look at it this way; I've already pulled 40+ hours of working on
vehicles, anything I do on my time is valued at over-time rate with a
fudge factor for annoyance. Somewhere around 6 hours is my limit. The
barter system is alive and well though... find a mechanic that needs
your expertise and put him in your debt! ;-) I keep fixing Richard's
computers and he keeps doing the jobs I dont want to do.

I cant help directly, but can offer a suggestion if Marie has a Ranger
(or similar) to measure with. Hook up ammeter capable of 60A; activate
each circuit in turn and note Amps and Volts, derive Wattage from same.
This should at least get you close. FWIW a 74A alternator would
approximate 1 kW at 13.8V and this is around the size of the common
alternator.

Keep us (or me via e-mail) posted, I'd be interested on the progress.

As much as I'd like to say otherwise I dont see any other plan. :-(
150K is pretty good mileage for an auto in a truck. Maybe a junkyard
unit and new converter rather than an overhaul? You *might* just have a
converter going bad, but I'd hate to say that and you pull the tranny to
no good effect. Usually when one goes bad it has it's effect on the
other.. tried to short cut a few times on my own vehicles and always
wound up right back where I was within a few weeks.

Subject: FTE Small - ADMIN: Pigeon Forge Show, Information

Those of you who are interested in attending the 21st Annual
F100 Supernationals in Pigeon Forge Tennessee can join the
Ford Truck Enthusiasts email list for discussion, questions
answered and event information. This is a big event for our
group, last year we had about 30 people there (not including
spouses and families). This year we expect double that
number.

I believe the date for reservations at the two hotels we
had rooms reserved at has passed but there are lots of
lodging alternatives. We are going to have a Saturday
breakfast at the Alan Jackson Cafe and the Georgia LoRiders
(a Ford truck club based in Atlanta) has invited us to
attend their Saturday BBQ.

The show is from May 13-16. Last year there where over 800
trucks in the show from 48s through 98s. This year they are
limiting the newest trucks to 79s due to lack of space.

If you are interested in joining the email list for more
information on this event, send an email to majordomo ford-trucks.com
with the following in the body of the email:

subscribe pfgroup-list youremail address.com

^^^^^Replace the above with your email
address.

If you have trouble joining the email list, email me personally
(kpayne ford-trucks.com) and I'll add you.

Later,

There are several different computer programs for the Ranger, each depending
on the options (engine, transmission, 4x4, etc). There is a 4 letter code on
a sticker on the firewall. It is also on the computer. You must match the
computer code to the SuperChip. My computer code was HAGO. When I purchased
it from Central Coast Mustang, they asked me for the code when I ordered the
SuperChip. The instruction sheet that came with my SuperChip said "for HAGO
computer" on it. That could be why yours wouldn't start.

I cut 2" x 6" rectangles in the front and back of my air-box on my '94 4.0L,
5-speed Ranger. I lived in Toledo, OH and had no problems with it heating in
the winter. I also never had problems with rain. My filter needed cleaned a
bit more often but that was it. I really couldn't tell any benefit, even
with my K&N filter though.
