umm.... if you're not mechanical you probably shouldn't attempt an engine swap... no offense

You need schooling....TO SPELL AND CONSTRUCT SENTENCES.











If you're not mechanically inclined, you really should be at least a little to do an engine swap. Luckily, for your truck, there's v8 conversion kits out there with headers, motor mounts, and some other things that are needed. It's almost a straight forward swap since you'll be going old school 302 carb'd and the parts are out there.

See this info page: http://therangerstation.com/tech_lib...nversions.html


Learn how to spell and construct sentences please. It's hard as fuck to read that jibberish you type out.

You're welcome.

I think maybe he is referring to your punctuation. ok, first off i'm pretty sure a t5 will not work unless you run a divorced transfer case, which means a good bit of $$$. You may be able to check into a 5spd from an f150. I have read around that those transmissions will move the shifter a few inches forward making shifts difficult. I'm not sure about your application, but some have used the transmissions from the 4.2 f150s, but then again not really sure. Other than this, all I can tell you is to search around this site, ranger forums .com, therangerstation.com, and rangerpowersports.com....if you search around these sites you will find pretty much anything and everything you need to know. I hope I was of a little bit of help to you...

like it says above it is what it is. and yeah i do need to go to school but wont be going if i cant get this truck up and going good enough to rely on it to make a 15 hr trip, and to fix the hill rod rigs under the hood and get it going im sure just swapping it would b easier so i know what wires are to what and what is going where and make the bay look decently organized. example of one of the hill rod rigs is there is a switch that is hook up to 3 fog lights in the front which is cool and all but every time u flip the switch on the horn goes off with it why they would do that im not sure but...
