Somewhere else I saw a torque figure for the 2.3 Ranger engine of 26ft-lbs followed by 90 degrees. I really don't intend on doing a full rebuild right now. I won't know for sure though until I tear into it. I'm thinking BSD since it looks like I'll have to pull the balance shaft anyway and it really can't be re-installed, plus a set of rod and main bearings and I'll be set to go again. If I see that the crank journals are scored up I'll have to explore other options, but I'm hoping for the best at this point.
