flood damage under steering column
I purchased a flood damaged ranger from time warner from hurricane sandy. Definetly some salt water damage. The electrical under the steering column is pretty much cooked. But I want to make sure the engine is still good before i go any further. With this, I need to get an idea what is all the components under the steering column. There is a white 1x4 box thingy that is torxed on to the column that i don't know what it is. I am not getting any response out of the key when turned. New batt, relay box under hood untouched by salt water, as well as computer thing on fire wall. I crossed the terminals on the solinoid to see if it turns over, but the started is not throwing out the gear, so i imagine it is rusted together. Someone please tell me some steps I should take before moving further into the project, to ensure its worth moving foreword. Draining oil now, and will worry about tranny later. How do i drain the fuel tank??
