Well last weekend the ranger got it's new power plant put in. Finally!!!!!!. I keep forgetting to take the camera to the shop with me to take pictures so I still don't have any pictures. We basically just dropped the motor and trans in and bolted it all up. Hopefully in the next couple days I will be able to get into the shop to bolt on the accesories and other important items needed for it to actually run.

Well today brought some good points and some bad points. We were going to make everything v-belt so we had all the v-belt pullies on and all that then found out that it wasn't going to work right. So now we are trying to get the Serpintine belt brackets all together to get that stuff on. really there wasn't much progress today except for jeff getting half of one side of the "new" floor put in it. I did get some pics today though.

Holy crap, I didn't realize your floors were so bad. Any estimates on when we'll be seeing you and the truck out on the trails again?

There are new floor pans on order from LMC Trucks so other than the weak 7.5 rear end she should be able to handle the power.

Ben,

I'll get the part number for you. I got them from Jeg's and they are Headman Headers I do remember that.


John,

Hopefully in a month or less. I basically have all the parts now it is just a matter of getting them on and getting it running.
