Post 84 ford ranger (small)

I just got a 84 ford ranger (small one)

Its got a 2.3 liter 4 banger, 4 speed manual trany. The truck is in supurb shape and was extreamly well cared for, It has 109,000 miles and runs and starts absolutly great, no knocking or lifter ticks ect. and the body is great for a minnesota truck.

My only problem is it sputers a little at certain throttle positions, I am going to try carb cleaner, the kind you spray in when running and some carb cleaner in the tank for a few tank fulls.

I heard somewhere that the carbs are kind of funky on these motors, is this true?

Also I think this is the same motor they use in those mini stock cars, Is this correct? If so any where I can get performance parts for the 2.3 liters? I think once the carb is streightened out the performance will be better.

Also any thing I should know about with this particular engine/truck?

One last thing , any good places to get stuff for this model truck?

Thanks for your time,
Jason Ebacher
