preferably turbointerested in any makeThanks!
nobody willing to give up their diesel mini ;-)that's ok - this time in 2 weeks we should have it.
So we have our new truck! Jason drove it from Kansas to Los Angeles - check out the story on Diesel Power and the pics below! We've gotten it registered in CA - smog-free VIN anyone? http://www.dieselpowermag.com/features/053013dp_1985_ford_ranger_turbodiesel_roadtrip/
Are you wanting to sell the ranger?
not yet! Right now the Diesel is awaiting some new parts - new pulley tensioner (for AC and power steering belt), new radiator, batteries, etc.etc. We have some of these parts, and are waiting for others. It took half an hour to start last time - just cranks and cranks. Once running, it's fine and will restart. The current radiator setup needs to go ASAP - while getting it "inspected" at AAA, it was dumping coolant everywhere. The coolant hoses are all trashed and such...no biggie, just can't be driven regularly like this.
Rear engine with 4 cylindersSpare tire is below a raised gas tankAC coil is up under the bed of truck and fairly well protectedMore leg room in cab than Suzuki for larger operatorsClutch and shifter cables:Tip about the ever-popular Suzuki DD51T and DB51T:Always make sure to check that the 4x4 shifter/cable is working and not stuck. It is a common problem in the Suzuki’s that have sat un-used for long periods of time.
