OK so it should have been in the 4-sale section but I need this:pray:
Does anybody have a pick-up screen/fuel filter (new) that they would be willing to part with? I would pay or replace when a new one comes in.

SKU: 15420-48G00

is there not a dealership around you you can order it from?

or do you not want to wait for it?
Yea but they don't open till tomorrow and I know none of them will have it. I called Babbitts today and it will take them 3 to 4 days to get it then another 3 days to get it to me:eek:. I have a bike event this coming weekend so, I thought I'd throw the fleece.

OK all is well? None of the zuk dealers had one and were all slow about getting one. However my atv dealer said he would have it by Thursday the 1st for $43 out the door.:bigthumbsup: As crazy as it sounds he also put my Dunlop E-3 250 on my bike and out the door for $149.

glad they got you taken care of. Hopefully I can find a dealer like that around here to cut me some deals like that.

Why don't you just take yours apart and clean it with some B12 Chem-tool or something similar like carb cleaner?

I now have 26,000 on mine. It's the original...

Cheers..

I am going to try that next time, rather than buy a new one. I trust that you just poured the B-12 into a pan and let the filter just soak in that?

Only thing I wonder about is whether some of the really nasty stuff in Berryman's, such as acetone and MEK, would do any harm to the plastic spreader in the filter. Probably not or my 98 Ford Ranger would have disintegrated by now. There is something going on with that truck that has had me scratchin my head for a couple of years. It starts and runs fine as long as I have about one full 15 oz. can in every fillup. But forget to put some in there, and within a couple of days it just flat refuses to start. Cranks like all get-out, but will not fire. I suspect the injectors are badly fouled, but at $99 apiece, and needing 6 of them, I'll just continue to buy cases of B-12.

Hey bro,

Long time man! I used the Spray version... I knocked out the chunks of metal deposits and dissolved them. As far as your ford not starting with the B12, have you checked to see if the Air intake hose is cracked? I ran cross this on a 1988 Ford Escort GT i used to run at the track. Not sure the injectors are fouled as much a the plugs might be. Take another look at it and let me know. We will definitely come up with some kind of fix bro.

Cheers bro

Nah, the intake is an aftermarket MAC unit with a polished aluminum 3" pipe, and a bigmouth Spectre stainless stell mesh cone filter on the end.

As for the plugs, I have to change them once a year anyways, as the Rangers ignition is strange. The spark plugs fire in a circular manner, ie, the spark on the left side goes from the outer electrode to the center, and the ones on the right go from center to outer. Thus one side continuously eats up the center electrode, no matter what it is made of. I have tried Iridium plugs, and the center disappeared in 10,000 miles. Fortunately all six plugs are readily open to changing.

BTW, all of the sensors that are required for starting have been replaced, the fuel pressure is right squat in the middle of required 56 to 72 psi, new coil pack, new plug wires. The Check Engine light is not lit, but does so for a brief second when first started as required, and there are no codes being thrown at all.

I have posted about this numerous times on the The Ranger Station and Ranger Power Sports, all to no avail. No one seems to have a clue, except that the injectors must have a layer of a resin type substance on the ends that seals off the hole when it cools down, thus the fuel pressure has to beat a hole throuigh that in order to start. The B-12 may be preventing that hole from closing off? Marvel Mystery Oil also seems to work, as I have been experimenting with that the last six months or so.

Fortunately for me, the Ranger is not mny only truck. Once I got started at my new job as a Sheet Metal Mechanic at Tinker AFB (after being out-of-work for 11 months), I bought a really clean 2004 Ford Lightning with 35,000 miles. Its only problem is it has a voracious apetite for 93 octane gasoline!:D







Here is the Ranger, btw. Not a bad looking vehicle by any standards.

And since it's off-topic, what do you go by on RPS? I've been on that forum since the mid 90's when it was Splash Power Sports and go by the same name over there. I've been an admin on it for a few years. I actually bought the 109 because of a picture that tworangerted posted of his on there when I was trying to decide what to buy. After talking with him a bit I decided it was the bike I wanted.

I go by the name I go by on all sites I frequent, cbxer55. One I am cbxer66 since 55 was already taken. I do not post much on any of the Ranger forums lately, as no one was ever able to come up with an answer for what mine suffers.

Along with that I got tired of those posers who constantly harp on those of us who decided to do things like aftermarket intakes, exhausts, ignitions, etc. They seem to think the stock truck is better, whatever.
Two years ago I decided to put the stock intake back on mine, and immediately felt the loss of power. I tried the stock intake tube with the K and N on the end, still felt slow. Whether they can feel the difference or not, I can and stock sucks.

And for some reason mine pings really bad on 87 and 89, possibly said modifications? Anyhow, again, there are those who constantly strive to point out that something is wrong if you have to run premium. OKAY, I have replaced practically every sensor on my 98, checked fuel pressure, put on new coilpack, frequently change plugs (one heat range lower due to ping), compression is good, maybe a tad high (deposits?), no CEL and no thrown codes. Everything checks out alright, and still it pings lightly on 91. So I regularly use 93, where it thus purrs like a kitten and runs frikkin great, and has for some eight years.

The same shenanigans happen on both TRS and RPS, and I have grown tired of hearing it, so I rarely even go there anymore. Instead prefer to hang out at National Lightning Owners Club (NLOC). And you can probably guess, driving a modified LIGHTNING is much more fun than a modified Ranger.:bigthumbsup:
