Tune-Up MAN!!!!

Ok i just recently did a complete tuneup on my Ranger, new distributor, new rotor, spark plugs, rotor cap and all.
But man i must say they designed that engine and put that distributor in the worst place possible.

Took me forever to do it, cause it was in such a tight place.

Do you see it in there? right behind the thing that says 2.9 liter v6, i forgot what it's called.
But the Grey distributor with the blue wires coming off it?
Man what a bit*h that was to replace.

behind your intake plenum? why didn't you just remove the intake and replace the gasket at the same time?

I remember before I entered the industry, I had my Bronco 2 with the 2.9 in it and I thought the same thing, They arent in the nicest spot but I find them to be nice after working on some of the other things the industry has to offer.

Congrats on the accomplishment of the tune-up. She will keep taking care of you if you keep up on it.

Because that would have been even more of a pain than it already was.
