1986 Ford Ranger
My 1986 ford ranger 2.3 l has a distributor not coil packs. But is there a difference between a 1986 and a 1989 engine. Would a 1989 block work with 1986 parts?

I thought your last post said it had an 89 engine? Tack the cap of distrib, crank engine, watch direction of rotor, install cap and wires in that rotation. 89 has no distributor, so you need the 89 PCM(computer).
The Block is a '89 and the head, the timing gears, intake-manifold, disturibter is all off a '86 engine is there any diference?
Block should be the same so it's most likley a timing issue. Pull number 1 plug, set the piston to top dead center, you can tell the compression stroke by putting your finger on the plug hole as you turn the motor by hand, turn clockwise till you feel the compression, then use a long screwdriver to judge TDC, now the timing marks should align for top dead center and the distributor should be set to fire # 1 cylinder. If the rotor points a bit before #1 thats how we want it. Not at or after!
Thank-you: ) also would the '89 cam for the 2.3 go into a head for the '86 2.3?
