I was wondering if I could get some of you 5.0 drivers here to measure the O.D of the inlet of your MAFs and tell me what they are. I recently had a gentleman tell me a Mustang 5.0 MAF would work on my 4.0 Ranger if I swapped the electronics part out (he said he'd used a 73mm model he bought from a friend). He said it would slip right into my factory intake hose. I know I could buy a used aftermarket MAF for a 5.0 and swap the electronics a whole lot cheaper than the $200+ a new Ranger unit costs from Vanir Tech.... then I'd just have to get a K&N cone to fit the Stang MAF... also, if anyone has a 70mmor so or larger MAF they'd like to sell (particularly if it doesn't work cause I only need the shell anyway), let me know, I might be interested. Also, if anyone knows anything about this swap, or the size of the stock 4.0 MAF (I'm figuring 53-55mm or so), that'd be great too...

Let me know what you find out on this. I'm interested in doing this as well
for my 96 4.0L Ranger. Also, you yourself, or anyone you might know, would
you be intersted in parts for a 96 Ranger? I have a Lund roll pan that I
just pulled off my truck. I bought a steel one from Sir micheal's and had
it welded and molded into the bed sides. I also have a factory hood if
anyone is interested. I took it off to replace it with a Keystone Good Hood
Ram Air Induction Hood.

three questions. First i put my exhaust on temp. to get it to the muffler
shop. have one full length exhaust running to the back with the muffler
about 4 ft back. and one muffler is directly behind the headers about 18
inches. both are 2.5" flowmasters. would this make the engine run rough
like a cylinder may not be firing properly or something?

i have an older 302, maybe mid or early 70's. Have an 86 T-Bird front assy.
and drive access. on it. would the timing points from the T-Bird match

last, does anyone know of a chart to look at and see what the advances
should be at different RPM's on this engine?

thanks guys

Thanks for all the posts. I tested many timing setting this weekend and it
has not significantly improved. I suspect that the diaphragm in the
distributor is ruptured. This week I'll look at the manual I have on
rebuilding the distributor and since I have the Electronic distributor for
the 85 motor I will also look into getting the correct parts (connections)
to put that distributor in.
