    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.

    Driveshaft is from a 98 Ford E250 van with the 4.2 V6. Conversion U joint 448 was needed. It now actually has park!

    F150 fuel lines are used to get behind the cab. Made a bracket on the top of the trans to help guide the lines down. I've still got to add in fuel filter and evap stuff. It's looking like I'm using evap stuff from an 05 Focus as the metal line fits the frame nicely from steering box to behind the cab and the box is compact.

    Unfortunately I've got to reroute the whole parking brake cable. Where it goes from factory it lays right on the top of transmission where the harness runs up. I was barely able to get the fuel lines to clear it but there is just nowhere safe to run the harness up but onto of the trans. Running it up though the body isn't an option either.
