1987 Ford Ranger 2.9 crank / no start. Does tachometer function somehow affect the spark timing?


No, but the tach signal may help you determine if coil is getting signal to spark. If tach needle is moving when engine is cranking over, that means the coil primary circuit is being turned on and off, and that means the ignition control module is working.

Does the 1987 Ford Ranger 2.9 V6 4WD have a crank shaft position (CKP) sensor?


The ignition system engine controller uses a distributor sensor with a sector wheel to provide the ignition timing. This distributor pick up coil provides the (CKP) sensor function.

1987 Ford Ranger. Won't fire.


Ignition module comes to mind. If you've tested for spark (holding spark plug wire near the block when cranking) and the cap and rotor are good, it seems the module is the only other area left to try. Best of luck Patrick. Please post back with any other questions.
