Test fit with stock efi intake setup. Fuel lines fit pretty well, they are from a 95 f150.
BIG difference in dash width. F150 is 64" wide and explorer is almost 54". I'm going to hack up the entire left side of the original dash to fab in the explorer stuff but try to leave the passenger side looking factory. Probably going to use an 01+ sport gauge cluster IF I CAN'T get a 96 F150 cluster to work (very similar in size to 77 F150 but digital ODO)
Half way done stripping the parts truck.... literally
Bet it can do a tire smoking donut, fairly easy right now! lol
Donuts were different with it, without the weight in the back it doesn't swing around as good. But boy did it leave some stripes down the street before I finished chopping it up......
Poor thing...... used abused and chopped up. I got what I needed though lol
Did you keep the axle?
Yeah I saved the rear but don't need it at the moment. It's 3.73 ls.
How many connectors broke? Do you use OEM replacements?
Just wondering, as I might need some new ones, doing a harness swap.
Would you be interested in selling all the brake components? I've got an 8.8/31 from a Sport Trac to throw into the Ranger, but it's a 10" drum setup and I'm on the fence about setting it up with discs instead.
I broke 3 or 4 but took my time. I cut it apart to make it easy to remove everything whole. These injector clips always break and I only broke 1 side of 1 injector.
I am cheap so I'll use used parts to make my repairs. I've got a box of harness I can steal from. I'll de-pin the original wires out and replace just the plastic part with another instead of cut/splice.
Keep the long-block?
Belt is on. Used a 98" belt, Napa part number 6K980.
Looking damn good.
