Ford Ranger & Mazda B-Series Pickup Clutch Hydraulic Release System Bleeding Procedure Part 2
The Ford Ranger and Mazda B-Series are very challanging when it comes to
bleeding the hydraulic clutch release system, specifically due to the
trapped air in the master cylinder and pressure line. This video shows the
technique that we use in our installation lab when we work on one and it is
what we recommend to diagnosis the release system, identify the problem
area and then "burp" and gravity bleed the system. If you have a question
the best way to contact us is at 1-800-258-8312 press 4 8-5 EST. Presented

4R44E Transmission Teardown Inspection - Transmission Repair
Here we see a teardown of a 4R44E transmission of a Mazda B3000 3.0 V6.
This unit is also on the Ford Ranger and Ford Explorer. Although the unit
changes in name, they're virtually the same unit as I explain in the video.
4R44E has 4 pinion planets on the front and rear. 4R55E and 5R55E have 6
pinion planets. 5R55E has an added speed sensor and reluctor on the output
shaft for an added signal for the computer to make a 5th gear. Most of the
parts are interchangeable between the 3 including valve body. The computer
is the one responsible to make this transmission shift 5 times. The added
gear is between 1st. and 2nd. applying the overdrive band to give you that
extra gear that some call it 2nd prime.

A machine consists of a power source and a power transmission system, which
provides controlled application of the power. Merriam-Webster defines
transmission as: an assembly of parts including the speed-changing gears
and the propeller shaft by which the power is transmitted from an engine to
a live axle. Often transmission refers simply to the gearbox that uses
gears and gear trains to provide speed and torque conversions from a
rotating power source to another device...
Manual transmission come in two basic types:
- a simple but rugged sliding-mesh or unsynchronized / non-synchronous
system, where straight-cut spur gear sets are spinning freely, and must be
synchronized by the operator matching engine revs to road speed, to avoid
noisy and damaging "gear clash",
- and the now common constant-mesh gearboxes which can include
non-synchronised, or synchronized / synchromesh systems, where typically
diagonal cut helical (or sometimes either straight-cut, or double-helical)
gear sets are constantly "meshed" together, and a dog clutch is used for
changing gears. On synchromesh boxes, friction cones or "synchro-rings" are
used in addition to the dog clutch to closely match the rotational speeds
of the two sides of the (declutched) transmission before making a full

Ford Ranger 2.3 2300 - EFI Delete - Carb mod - 8 Plug head
The first ever carbed 8 plug 2300 head I've ever seen. Thanks to my buddy
Zach for making this possible. The intake was all a guess as far as runner
length and plenum size. I knew I was going for torque and MPG...so we
tried to make the runners as long as we could...the rest is just what
fit:). The carb is the Motocraft...Autolite 2100 (best carb ever made).
Better than EFI if you ask me. Ford had it on lock down with patents
untill EFI came out. So simple you could rebuild in the dark. Distributor
is a billet procomp pro. Neep Hp plug wires. NGK plugs, 96' ranger
headers, no cats just stock muffler, complete EFI removal. Ebay digital
gauges, I used a cheap no name ebay fuel pump. The carb was used off a
1965 Mustang and rebuilt
with a $16 kit. Thanks again Zach for the aluminum and fabbing skills:) I
still cannot believe how good this thing runs. Thank god for 70's
'88 F150 M5R2 to ZF S5-42 Transmission Swap 1 of 3
This is the first video of my F150 transmission swap from the Mazda M5R2
5-speed manual to the ZF S5-42 5-speed manual. In this video I remove the
driveshaft, speedometer cable and starter.
The old Mazda M5R2 transmission has a leak behind the shifter assembly
where 3 plastic or rubber plugs have dry rotted due to heat. New rebuilds
have brass plugs to remedy this, but I could not find one for a reasonable
price to put in this budget truck build. Luckily I found the ZF S5-42
transmission for $400 used, and that's the main reason this swap is being
done this way. The cheapest M5R2 I could find was $1200.
The other added benefit is that the wide ratio ZF's 1st and reverse gears
are creeper gears that are good for towing and backing up trailers,
carrying heavy loads and slow off-road driving. The overdrive gear is
numerically lower for lower rpm on the highway, which will return better
mileage. It seems that this will be an improvement on every level over the
close-ratio Mazda M5R2, especially considering that the bearings were shot
and it was probably sapping rear wheel horsepower and costing
precious fuel. Since this is a work truck and not a race car, the slower
acceleration that you get from a wide ratio transmission will not be an
