Being that in 86 the Ranger was an apperance package of the f-150 you might want to try the f-150 forum

1986 Ford Ranger has a bad fuel pump. The low pressure fuel pump seems to be acting up I think you should drop the fuel tank and disconnect what you called the "main hose" and filler tube to the tank.

The Ranger became its own truck in 1983 and so was not a f150 package.

The 1986 Ford Ranger uses a Mitsubishi 4d55t (turbo). It uses a low pressure fuel pump to bring fuel to the injector pump. It has an electric fuel shut off built into the injector pump, a single wire comes from the a solenoid at the rear of the pump just above the injector lines. Power this wire to open the valve.

I got this figured out but I do not think it is my problem. I tested the shutoff and it worked. I vet fuel when the key is turned on. Injectors are clean and I put in new glow plugs. The one thing however is when I took the glow plugs out there was one the looked like it had been smacked with the piston. I know with gas engines the vehicle will still run but noisely and rough. Will a diesel still run?

The glow plugs are only for heating the cylinder at start-up. They do not function once the engine is running. You can still start a diesel on a cold day without glow plugs... it just won't be very happy about it until the cylinder temps rise from combustion.
