How do you fix wiring for 1988 ford ranger4x4 wiring to the fuel pump

Are you wanting to wire voltage or ground circuits? Remember, you have to deal with the fuel gage sending unit circuit or the fuel gage won't work.
The basics, if single wire dedicated circuit, leave a pigtail wire, both ends, as long as the problem is between the pig-tails, run a new wire, splice into pig-tails. The new wire can lay anywhere till you do some testing to see if it's going to work.
I short-handed this post a little. I wasn't sure exactly what you have going on?
Do want a wiring diagram?

I have a 1988 Ford Ranger 4x4 2.9 ltr motor, getting gas, getting fire, will not start.

This could be a long list of things. First thing i would check is compression in each cylinder and if that checks out i would move on to the firing order and timing. Just because you get fire and fuel doesnt mean the firing order is right or the timing gears could be off just a few teeth for this to happen. Get back with if none of this works for you .
