My 1986 ford ranger 2wd runs great, except when i come to a stop
It starts sounding like its trying to cut off and the battery meter starts bouncing, but never to the "d", dead. if i sit there on the throttle it will stop doing it, i know my alt./battery are fine, i think it may be the voltage regulator, i need to know what it looks like, and wheres it located

This sounds like your problem.....Try this, only takes 5 minutes and probably whats wrong. The same thing happened to me, it was running perfect and died. There's something called an Inertia switch (google how to find it) the older rangers and bronco II's have them. It may think you have gotten in a accident and this device stops the fuel pumps. I literally pressed the reset button on the top of it and my truck started right back up after not being able to start at all.
on mine the hoses are visible, with the exception of one.. its sort of hidden, you have to remove the cover and look behind the bag.. but, even so, i still like my 2000 DirtDevil, runs good, looks great. enjoy your vacuum.
check the ignition switch, they separate and cause this stall out, try holding the ignition to the crank position just short of causing the starter to run, if the engine stays running then the ignition switch is defective, Ford recalled many of these for this problem, not sure your truck was affected, but it does use the sam switch and gets the same problem.
