Question about 1990 Ford Ranger SuperCab
Hey, i have a 1990 ford ranger 2.3. i replace the cylinder head put everything back together and now it wont start. I smell gas, but see no leaks or anything. It ran before i replaced the head gasket. What could it be? the timing? i was looking for the in line spout connector but couldnt find it. What could it be?
looks like there is special sequence to reassemble and tightening, a quick note replace any bolts that have two punch marks.tighten as follows: x x x x x 10 4 2 6 8 x x x x x 7 5 1 3 9 torque all down to 15 ft lbs torque to 30 ft lbs plus 90 degrees. Good luck!

Rotate the engine so that No. 1 cylinder is at TDC on the
compression stroke. Check that the timing marks are aligned on the
camshaft and crankshaft pulleys. An access plug is provided in the cam
belt cover so that the camshaft timing can be checked without removal
of the cover or any other parts. Set the crankshaft to TDC by aligning
the timing mark on the crank pulley with the TDC mark on the belt
cover. Look through the access hole in the belt cover to make sure that
the timing mark on the cam drive sprocket is lined up with the pointer
on the inner belt cover.
The spring cannot be used to set belt tension; a wrench must be used on the tensioner assembly.

How is the condition of the wiring, at, and around the Ignition Control Unit?
I am asking that because I will usually find all of these wires, including the wires leading out to the engine, to be in poor condition. I usually find that the wires will have a lot of missing wire insulation with a lot of exposed wires that are either touching other exposed wires, or to ground. Un-twist any twisted up wires especially the wires to the Ignition Control Unit. Check and inspect the wires carefully for missing insulation especially any twisted up wires, and also check inside the wire looms for any damaged wires. I can not even begin to count how many times that I have had to get out the soldering iron and repair wiring in that location, and on those types of F-Series Ford trucks.
