I loved that part when I did the manual transmission swap on my Ranger.

Thanks Gary!

Matt, great work on the tailgate. I had to drill the holes in mine for the tailgate panel. I know that wasn't fun. I can only imagine having to fill them in.

Bought 5 new lug nuts because I only had 15 of the closed end style, washed the whole truck, painted my spare tire carrier to match the truck, and just stared at it while wishing it ran.

The emblems, lack of FORD lettering on the hood, and the blue oval in the grille make this a 1982 or a 1983.

Since this truck has the 5x4.5 lug pattern, this means it has power brakes, and a GVWR...

Also forgot to mention that my window regulator is toast. The window rolls down just fine, but when you try to roll it up it feels like the teeth are skipping. If I pull the window up with my hand,...

Well hasn't Tim built enough of these engines with that mod to prove that it works?

Progress is slow, but there is progress. I told myself that I would like to have it done by the 10 year anniversary. That gives me 3-1/2 more years. :D
