Re: another 5.0 question
The bell housings are different, and the M5OD-R1 is an integral bell housing (you can't change it). You are going to need to use a v8 transmission. Search for a Ranger 8.8" swap if you want to replace the 7.5". Drive shaft will either need to be modified or made custom, lucky if it's the right length - definitely don't want to base you engine placement on a drive shaft you have. A brand new custom made drive shaft for my swap was under 300.
