The Ranger got home on the flatbed yesterday. After 197,000 miles the timing belt failed not sure if it was original. I bought the truck with 120,000 miles on it. This is a non interference motor so I was a little laxed on maintenance ( I thought this truck would die a year ago!). Anyways I got into disassembly by taking the upper radiator hose, ac compressor, timing belt cover, and power steering bracket off. Before I did this I took out one of the number one spark plugs and put the motor at top dead center. Next I have to remove the crank pulley and install the new belt. See pics below.
