Matthew, I assume you have replaced the missing carb with a new one, is it an OEM original? or an after market? It matters what carb you put on because of smog laws and whether or not the carb you bought is smog legal for your truck, if it is not the exact same as the factory original then there wont be a correct vacuum line schematic. If when you do have the correct replacement carb then type in (1985 ford ranger, v6 2.8l vacuum line diagram) in to your google search engine, search under " images" there you will find lots of diagrams of vacuum line routing. If you are not able to do any of this then take the truck to a qualified service tech, there are also mobile service mechanics that can help, good luck to you sir. One final note, you can plug each of the vacuum outlets on the carburetor with the appropriate size vacuum caps, this will allow you to start the engine and make minor adjustments, then you can drive the truck to a qualified tech

1985 Ford f250 was running fine, let sit for couple weeks and would not start. disconnected fuel line from carburetor and no fuel coming through when turned over


I would suspect your fuel pump is getting weak. Regular driving kept it full, but where it sat for a couple weeks had time to drain and won't pick up fuel again.

My 1985 Ford Ranger is having a hard time starting. I noticed gas leaking from the carburetor. Any suggestion?


Your carburetor probably needs rebuilt. Being that old, it may be gummed up, plugged, or otherwise just worn out. If you can, take it out and take it to your local repair shop, or even an AutoZone for advice on taking it apart. It is too intricate to explain via email.

Ford Ranger 2003 air climate control blower problem?


ford uses vacuum operated valves to open and close the ducts in the heat- a/c box on most models... look under the dash on the right side (passenger) on the top of the heater/ blower case..there is a plastic connection that has about 5 or 6 color coded vacuum lines going to it i would check this to see if maybe it has worked loose! also follow the vacuum lines back to the engine bay to see whether any of those have come loose...
