Timing

Hi Everyone,

I live in Dallas, TX and have recently bought a Ford pickup. It says Ranger on the sides but people keep telling me to say F-100 when asking fro parts. The guy I bought it from said it had a 360 that was bored out to 390. So I think its a 360 V8. Just wanted to know if anyone knew what to set the timing on the truck to or where I might find that answer. Glad to have joined your community and I look forward to your emails.

Dannik

Hello Dannik and welcome to the board. I can see where calling your truck a Ranger could cause confusion with some parts people since Ford Rangers were originally basically a trim option and the later Rangers were a different pickup line altogether.
