Expo engine swap questions
I rebuilt a 4.0 OHV for my brothers 96 explorer sport last year, and things came up, as they often do, and I am now in possesion of it again. My question is, what is needed to drop the 96 motor into my 2000 ranger. I know I will need to buy/fab motor mounts. What about fuel and accessory mounting issues? It had the 4r transmission in the explorer, will my 5r mount up?
Also, will the ECM be compatible with the older engine?
I will be putting aftermarket 98tm heads on it, unless I find a better deal on 95tm heads, anyway. There will be an SCT Livewire tuner put in when the install occurs, so it may be possible to work some of the bugs out between the two systems with the tuner.
