I have all the pics on my laptop hard drive, but they are water marked from another forum. Am I allowed to post those pics here or is there some sort of copyright thing. New here and have no desire to tangle with the mods. LOL.

I say go for it. I'd like to see them for my install as well.

Yeah, Photobucket is killing me here with their image policy.

Can someone share the install pics for this OHC with me? I'm getting ready to do this mod on a 2001 Ranger and would really appreciate it. In particular, the PCM or GEM (whichever is used for 2001) wire tap pics/instructions and temp sensor positioning on the vehicle for accurate temps.

I'm pretty sure I can figure the rest out, but any/all pics or an intact write up is always appreciated.

Thanks.

Hello all,

i have a 2004 Ranger and I went to the a junkyard and picked up a 2000 Explorer ohc and an extra ohc bezel (for test fitting).



I cut the tabs off and test fitted it and it seems to not fit the profile of the headliner. I wanted to test fit before cutting. What I am I missing?

The mounting bracket, I did the same thing as you, test fit with a second bezel and thinking this isn't going to work.

When cutting the hole in the headliner, cut it smaller than the bracket, just wide enough for the tabs to fit, and just long enough so the 2 tabs and 2 screws that fasten the console to the bracket fit, you can always make the hole bigger if needed.
Mount the bracket between the roof and headliner, the bracket will hold the headliner down a bit, when you install and tighten the 2 screws that hold the console to the bracket it pulls everything together and closes the gap.

Like everyone else has said on everything I have read on doing this install, The hardest part is getting up enough nerve to make the first cut into the headliner.

Recommend using a straight edge and a super sharp utility knife to make the cuts.

Does anyone have or know where to find all the install photos that used to be in the 1st page of this thread? Especially the ones with the bracket install.

Does the bracket go on top off the headliner or underneath (between headliner and roof)?

It's one of those things that I really feel like the ranger should have come with this from the factory. It's so freaking convenient. Use mine everyday for my sunglasses.
