Alright i have a couple of updates.

I recently purchased a set of headman ranger 302 conversion headers and painted them up nice and pretty.

bought a whole new steering gear for the ranger. paid 150 bucks for everything from the steering wheel down to the pitman arm. i wound up using my existing steering stalk because my truck is a xlt king cab and has cruise control and such.

i got the steering done, and now all that is left is to get a set of lift leaf springs for the rear and buy a 347 stroker kit for the truck.

on to the pictures:





painted the frame



drag link all welded and painted



also bought a new grille from the same guy and i had to put my old rangers ovals on it



new clean painted steering wheel and column



cleaned and painted power steering box



finally! steering is complete

Update.

I have grown tired of the ranger sitting in the garage , so i decided to get on the ball and get some stuff done.

the truck will be running by december. so with that being said here are some pictures:

I took the motor down to the machine shop, got it bored .030 over, ordered a eagle 306 kit, ordered a ford racing f cam, a new double roller timing chain, new lifters, new gaskets and some good 'ole ford blue engine paint.





im going tomorrow to pick up an hei distributor, and a holley 650 double pumper.

ordered a new cam bolt, head studs, main studs, stainless intake bolts, and chromolly rod bolts,

ive ported and polished my heads, intake and gasket matched all the gaskets.

here is a picture of the motor partially assembled:



thats it for now.
