For my 84 f-150 351cleveland big block with a 4 barrel edlebrock carb with raised edlebrock manifold and heads. can’t find this part anywhere. It is a pigtail that converts a 3 wire distributor to a 4wire electric Ignition module. 3 prong female end to a 4 prong male end on the module. no-one can figure out what I’m talking about or find the part.

I get what you are looking for. Here is an example of what I think you want. However, I did not find the part listed at Jegs or Summit Racing. You may just have to make your own wiring harness.

In 1984 Ford used the Duraspark II system. This refers to the Duraspark II control module with a BLUE strain relief bushing, one 4-pin connector, and one 2-pin connector. Another version of the system has an additional 3-pin wiring connector, and two YELLOW strain relief bushing’s. Source: Handyman Dan

Rear bumper. What all is involved in removing the rear bumper??? I have a standard bumper but will be putting a step bumper on it. Is there a different mounting bracket for the Step Bumper or is everything the same???


Everything should be the same. Remove four nuts, install the replacement bumper and tighten the nuts.

2001 ford ranger door ajar light on sometimes buzzer

door ajar switch location diagram


Door Ajar Light On

The most likely reason for the light to be illuminated would be from the door ajar switch failing. It is a common failure part do to use and age.

According MotorDriven the door jam switch is the door ajar switch(shown above). However, ChiltonLibrary would explain that the door ajar switch is attached to the side of the door latch. Mitchell1 Manual  refers to the door ajar switch as part of the door lock actuator(latch). If you look up the latch from Dorman 746-148 it does not have the door ajar switch(2001).

I know from personal experience on a 2002 Ford Ranger, the door ajar switch is mounted on the side of the Door Lock Latch. If you look up the latch from Dorman 746-148 it does not have the door ajar switch. Only thing I can figure is there is an early model and late model Ranger. Therefore determine which switch location you have before replacing the switch.

Door Ajar Switch

Removal and Installation

  • Remove the front door latch. For additional information, refer to Front Door Latch in this section.
  • Remove the door ajar switch.
    • Lift the locking tab.
    • Rotate and remove the door ajar switch.

Noise after changing brake calipers on 2005 Ford Ranger

I changed my calibers and now I have a grinding noise in the brakes. I tightened the wheel bearing but it came back.


Most likely the brake dust shield got accidentally bumped and it is rubbing against the brake rotors. A close inspection of all moving parts will be needed. If this only occurs when the brakes are applied, you may need to remove the calipers and inspect there. If the noise was there before you installed the calipers and it went away when you tightened the bearings, there may be an issue with the bearings.

Ford F150

I’ve been dealing with a parking brake light always on. We changed all my sensors and re soldered the wiring harness at the instrument cluster. I follow the wire all the way to the parking brake sensor and still cant find where the problem could be.


Parking brake light always on

You the provided wiring diagram to help diagnose your problem area.

*NOTE – the brake light will also illuminate when the brake fluid level is low or brake fluid level sensor is sticking. It will also illuminate if the park brake is not released completely. Sometimes this requires lifting up a bit on the park brake.
