Default 1993 Ranger ?'s......

I have a friend that is needing some repairs to her 1993 Ranger ext cab. I will be replacing the water pump, thermostat, the belt, the wires and plugs. My question is....should I replace with all Motorcraft parts or aftermarket. Its just a daily driver with 128k miles. I dont know of anything that has ever been done to it besides regular oil changes and topping off fluids.

My thoughts: water pump...get a rebuilt
thermostat... motorcraft
belt...Gates
plugs and wires...Motorcraft (Ive had issues with aftermarket on Fords)


Lemme know......will be doing these repairs this coming weekend. Anything special I should check out while doing these repairs as well? I will also pressure test radiator while Im at it. I plan to steam the engine compartment area as well. Some say leave the engine running some say different while steaming it off......you opinions????

Yes on the MC plugs, wires, and reman Wpump. Stant and MC are fine for tstats. Had bad luck with Murray Tstats. Always test the Tstat befoe installing. As belts are concerned Gates is always a reliable choice as well as the Goodyear Gatorbacks. Though inferior to the other two, I've had good results with Dayco belts as well.

Thanks for the info! Ill see what happens. I get parts at company cost plus 5%. She was gonna take it to a shop she usually uses but Im trying to get a car from her. Maybe she will give it to me after I do this and take down another cedar tree. Hmmmm!

it's nice that you help her out, but instead of trimming them trunks try nibbling them thighs for a better price

I will not work on a married woman's vehicle outide of my own wife's. I will explain to the husband what needs to be done and help him spin a wrench but never just do it for her. Even if it's for so called good friends. Unless he asks me, i just won't be do it.

She is a widow. He husband hung himself in their basement. She is 60 and lives alone. She does pretty well for herself but I hate seeing a good friend taking a vehicle for repairs because I know repair shops see a woman and see $$$$ signs. Id rather do the work for her and know its done right without ripping her off. She is good friends with my wife and my wife knows I go over there. Nothing sexual about anything AT ALL! Just being a polite gentlemen trying to help her out.


I got all the parts today. Will be doing all this this weekend after work. I looked at the radiator and its down about 6" in the filler neck so its leaking pretty good. The block behind the pump is green.....
