Question about 1983 Ford Ranger
I have a 1987 ford ranger with a 1983 model 2.0L in it with a 1 barrel. One day i was on my way to work and it just died on me. I replaced the plugs, wires, ignition control module, cap, and the rotor button before I realized that the distributor wasnt tuning. So I pulled the distributor out and the gear on the bottom was sheared very badly, I replaced the whole distributor and it still wont turn. Somebody PLEASE HELP!!!
If the bottom of the distributor has a flat tip type end on it then it probably plugs into your oil pump you may have a jammed oil pump which would explain why the gear sheared off.
