Selling a fully refurbed '94 Ford Ranger 2wd with 2.3L 4 cylinder and 5 speed manual.

The Good-
Fresh Tune Up inc Timing Belt
New rear brakes (shoes, hardware, lines etc)
New front brake pads and lines
Replaced leaf spring mounts and shackles which are common failures on these trucks
New Tires (>2k miles)

The Bad-
Its rusty on the box wheel wells and tailgate
Clear coat is peeling on the paint in places
Exhaust needs repair (sounds like a rice burner)
Driver seat sags a bit, just well "broken in"

This was my fathers work truck to drive to and from. I put way more money in parts and labor into it than its worth but used it as a demo project for my students (I'm a shop teacher).

Will take $800 from a LSF member, listed for a grand other places.

Well Gents, it's time for me to pass "Great White" onto a new owner. I build a few shacks every year for customers and its time for me to integrate some new features into my showcase house. So here she is!

-Miltona Blacksmith 6k lb capacity frame with brakes and herculiner
-Smooth aluminum sheet siding
-Dual 20lb tanks
-6 covered holes
-2 Burner cooktop
-Flip out couch with full size air mattress
-Two bunk mattresses (3rd bunk in back was used for storage)
-Prefinished Maple Paneling with Cedar trim
-Custom built cabinets and tops
-LED lighting throughout
-Pioneer sound system
-24" LED TV
-WFCO inverter/charger

I've had this house for 3 years, it's been great to fish out of for the family and has been used as a base station when fishing walleye tourneys over the summers. I spent a few years looking at different shacks before I even built this one just to get ideas on what I wanted for features. Looking to get $10k obo, located in Grand Rapids MN. Will send more pics or set up a time to come look!

Nice!!! Those old FD engines are tough, just keep good fuel in it and it'll last quite awhile.

I've used trowel on adhesive from menards on a few of the houses I've built. Easy to apply and bonds the rubber to the ply.

That is a early to mid 60's model, use a 50:1 mix for the fuel. Pre 60's engines had bronze bushings for the connecting rods which required the higher oil content. Simple engines to work on!

What color is it? How many pins on the fuel connector? I have a '59 Johnson 18hp that I did the conversion to run a new style fuel tank. Easy process and have a bunch of pics if you have the old pressure tank run engine. Most 18hp were 25:1 oil mix.

Get a motorguide xi5! The spot lock is much better than the minnkota's.

As a marine mechanic I'd love to say just run whatever fuel you want, it helps to keep my kids fed! But in all seriousness run Non-Oxy unless you want a $400+ bill from the shop for carb kits and all new fuel lines not to mention a ruined day on the water.

I run the cabelas brand oil in all my two stroke smaller outboards. When I had my old boat with a 75hp Mariner I tried a few different brands. The cabelas oil was the only one that didn't leave a smoke screen behind the boat.

With that being said, my dad still runs XD30 in his '97 Evinrude 150 and 15hp. No issues since he bought it new!

FYI- Small Mercs are built by Tohatsu, including the 25hp. My buddy and I just had this discussion for his rig which is about the same as yours and my opinion is Suzuki or Yamaha, both have EFI. Just make sure you have dealer support where you are at.
