SOURCE: 1988 ford ranger

Though it's a bit late from when this question was asked... But... I replaced my timing belt before it broke. Like anything else on my 88 ford ranger it was the easiest thing! If your really carefull and remove the plugs! You must remove the plugs because of the compression that's there waiting to fire when you next start the car. Dissasemble the fan, fan cover, and the pulley and the plastic cover. Not exactly in that order, just what you need to access the belt. Score or mark or paint where one or two teeth of each pulley is in reference to a non moving part of the truck (you can rotate the whole thing to a convient setup by hand) make sure when you rotate the assembly it feels somewhat free you can see and feel that there is no tension on the belt in ANY area. When you have all the marks set up loosen the bolt holding the tensioner use a bar to move the tensioner out of the way just enough then tighten the bolt on the tensioner, that will keep it locked open while you simply and carefully slide out the belt then slide in the new belt keeping the marks 'still', just go slow and keep your eyes open. Maybe I just got lucky...But the theory is sound and worked for me.
Probably could use a diming light to make sure but I don't have one and the truck still runs fine. Oh and by the way... if you ever need to replace the heater core it'll take you all of 20 mins if you have even the basic of abilities and the right screw driver :)

The timiing is set by aliging the timing marks on the cam with the timing marks on the crank -- then the belt goes on.

I've never done one on a Ranger, but most timing gears have alignment marks that you line up before you install the belt. Don't forget to replace the belt tensioner while you're at it.

How to replace the water pump on a 1984 ford ranger 2.8 litr

I just did one on a 94 "almost identicle engine"

This is the way I did it:

drain coolant-remove upper radiator hose-loosen fan bolts '4 bolts attaching it to the water pump'-remove serpentine belt-finish uninstalling the fan- remove 2 bolts securing the fan shroud to the radiator and it should slide out with the fan-remove pump 'be sure to clean the mating surface of the block before sealing with silicone and gasket to ensure it doesn't leak'

reverse the process for installation.

NOTE: if I were you, id replace the timing belt while your in there since the timing cover is nearly impossible to get off without doing this same procedure.

Good luck.
