Hmmm, i'd measure the bolt pattern on the trans bell housing, as well as check for all the necessary connections. If the bellhousing pattern and the connections match up, then you should be fine.

It should bolt right up....But he excluded to tell me i would be making a 4 1/2 round trip...In the mean time i have located a 94 mazda Navajo..
My current trans a 93 a4ld is just having small problems..cold shift..slow to hit 3rd gear..
changed filter, fluid (clean ,very little dust on the magnet), modulator,,i have ordered a NEW Governor assembly w/ a 35mm weight..after thats installed and i adjust the bands and it still doesnt shift...i am looking to the Navajo to save the Day..Any thoughts on the Navajo Trans?

you might just have to tear it down and do a rebuild

The Navajo would probably be a better choice since it's the Ranger's suv counterpart.
