Its a great motor, I have worked on one many times out of an 87 bII. They last a long time and get fairly good mpg as well. Very easy to work on the power is a little bit lacking but they are peppy

Why do you say that stone? All the ones I have had to toy with have been really good motors overall.

That's first gen right? Paint it a nice shiny black and lower it, I love that look. Although it doesn't work with any other gen of the ranger.

2.9 has no power, but mine lasted about 290,000 miles before the block cracked.
