    84 Ranger 395V

Rated:

 A guy at work has asked me to checkout a 84 Ranger 395V that he is interested in. I feel qualified on everything except the engine/outdrive. Yes it has a 350 Chevy & OMC outdrive. I have never seen or heard of a inboard Ranger bass boat. I plan on doing a compression test, timing and vacuum check, plus lower unit oil inspection. Does anyone know of any particular maintenance problems with this boat/power train setup or anything else I should look for? He is suppose to bring it to my house Friday for the maintenance checkout and I'll meet him at the lake Sat for a wet run. Thanks in advance. PS: asking price is 7 grand, is that reasonable? It looks well kept so far. GeorgeMc

   Ranger I/O from Jan (4.33.152.10)  8/16/2000 2:27:00 PM
 I've seen several of these older Ranger inboards on Shasta lake in northern California. Seems to be a big water boat. The only thing that seemed hard to deal with was the rear seat being atop the engine cover. The cover looked about the size of a large dog house. Reduces the rear deck floor space alot. Aside from that, I would assume that the hull is strengthened in the rear area to accomodate the V8. Price sounds fair. Good luck.


   Heavy and slow from Pat Dilling  8/19/2000 1:11:00 AM
 Ranger made their I/O for quite a few years, but in limited numbers I think. I also have seen a few up at Shasta and other lakes near here. They are a lot heavier than a similar outboard boat, and consequently slower. They also give up storage space. On the other hand those V-8 Chevys are pretty bullet proof and dependable.
