your fly wheel or starter is not balanced it sounds like it is your fly wheel because your transmission mount is gone or your motor mounts are gone. either one will offset when the mounts go.

There is a vin# break in that model year for the flywheel. The 8th digit of the vin number determines which flywheel was used. Basicly they used 2 different flywheels that year. I had that problem and after much research i found the correct one at oreillys auto parts. All other parts stores did not show a vin break in the part number.

What are the chances of the fly wheel being stripped if the starter on an 87 Ford Ranger suddenly stops engaging but still spins loudly and how do you check?

If the starter has been grinding against the flywheel for quite some time there is a GOOD chance that the flywheel is stripped. On the other hand, if it just started and it's engaged thoroughly in the past, you probably just have a bad starter bendix. Pull the starter then use a screwdriver or some other tool for prying to slowly turn the flywheel and inspect each tooth of the flywheel. Look for any that are significantly worn down or missing. If ANY fit that category you will need to pull the engine or transmission and replace the flywheel or flexplate depending on whether it's a manual transmission or an automatic.

Why does my starter on my 1985 ford ranger 2.6l v-6 4 wheel drive grind or not engage with the flywheel properly?

It could be that the starter pinion drive (also known as the bendix) is worn. If it is grinding and roatating slowly, then the bushings are worn. In either case, you neep to overhaul or replace the starter.

What is worng when you have replaced the stared the flywheel and the solenoid and it still just spin over 1986 Ford ranger XL?

Check to make certain that it's wired correctly. Some starters can be wired wrong and cause that problem, probably not a ford though. If that's not it, check the alignment between the starter and flywheel and make certain that it's the right flywheel and starter and that the new bendix works right. Otherwise, you're on your own on that one. It's a mystery if none of the above fixes it. If it is just spinning and not turning the engine, not even once, then the problem is either a bad started, the flywheel was used and the teeth are chewed too far down. the way it works is you hit the key, the started drive kicks inside the bellhousing a little bit so the drive head on the starter connects with the teeth on the flywheel and spins the flywheel which in turn rotates the engine. If it is not touching the engine at all, then I would make sure you got the right parts and that they were good parts, specially if you got a starter from a junkyard, or one from a parts store that said it was rebuilt as they have a bad record with rebuilding those and alternators.

Why won't 86 Ford Ranger start have changed the battery solenoid and starter can only hear a whiring sound from solenoid?

The only noise a solenoid can make is a "click" when it is engaged. The solenoid is just an electrically operated switch that allows you to control a large amount of current by applying a relatively small amount of current. If you are hearing a "whirring" sound, it's probably the starter that is not engaging the flywheel. There are only 3 possibilities: 1. The starter bendix is not functioning properly. I believe that model Ford uses a bendix on the starter. It's a mechanism that engages the starter to the flywheel when you use the starter and disengages the starter when you stop so that the starter doesn't spin while the engine is running. 2. The starter is not aligned properly or you have the wrong starter. 3. There is a worn place on your flywheel/flexplate making a space where the starter can't engage. If you suspect that, next time the engine won't start like that, pull the starter and examine the gears on the flywheel/flex plate. If it's worn or you have missing gears you'll need to find a replacement. solenoid should only make a clicking sound not a whirring sound most fords however , have a solenoid on the starter and also one under the hood check solenoid under the hood' if that is not the problem, then u have either stripped teeth on the starter gear, or stripped teeth on flywheel
