Winter Beater

1985 Ford Ranger

2.0L L4 GAS Standard 5 Speed Standard Cab Pickup

Property of 91blackpanther Added Nov 2015 Location:

122ci 2.0L I4, Carter YFA 1-barrel carburetor, Durapark II ignition

TK5 trans with open 7.5 diff (not sure on the ratio)

This truck is my winter beater - meant to stop putting rust and wear on my '91 Grand Marquis daily driver. I bought it 2015-05-05 with 123,768km.

It had serious issues with running rich and pretty much refused to idle in some situations. I've been playing with the carburetor and vacuum lines for some time, as well as ignition components trying to get it right. It is driveable (though does stall occasionally) and as of October 2015 is on the road.
