Ranger doors on a BII???

Postby madmark » Tue Apr 19, 2005 3:28 pm

Hi guy's
I havent posted much for a while,but I been working and I bought an 84 BII,got it running already,needs a little cooling system work,got new stat and the gskts,got vc gskts too.
In case you dont know the whole story the BII had a heater blower motor fire,so the guy I bought it from started to take the climate control wiring harness from an 85 BII but thought it wouldnt work so he gave up.The truck sat for 3 years after that.Any way he has a ranger 83 or 84 that has better doors than the the BII and I can have them if they will fit.Can any of you tell me if they will?
He also says I can have anything I want from 85 BII thats a parts truck,that will fix the heater/ac sys,got a large case 90 amp ford alt in the deal too,gona trun that into obw.got the a/c comp from the 85 also,oba.
It runs,all the lights work,needs brake work bad,smokes alittle after it wrams up but I think that will slow way down with new valve seals.The c-5 auto seems to go into all gears,but with the brake pedal going to floor I did want move it.
I took the oilpan off the 460 in my 78 Sunday and there wasn't any metal or broken skirts or rod and main bolts,so now I will pull the caps and plasta gauge them,if thats all good I'll look for a bad lifter or a bad wrist pin.
Sorry for the long post.
