Default Will a 5 speed standard trans from a 4.0 V6 fit on a 3.0 V6??

I have 1999 ranger with the 4.0 V6, I might need a new transmission and I want to go from Automatic to a 5-Speed trans (I can get a low mileage 5 speed with everything pedals, shifter slave cyl. for $300 only 80K on it), will the 5 speed trans from a 2000 4.0 fit a 1999 3.0 v6??

No, it won't work. The bell housing bolt pattern is different 3.0 to 4.0 and the bell housing is integral to the trans case.

Use the correct transmission, column parts, pedals, etc. and an auto to manual conversion is 100% bolt in, just like on the assembly line. You'd be signing up for more than that with a Ranger V8 swap.

Default Re: Will a 5 speed standard trans from a 4.0 V6 fit on a 3.0 V6??

I have a '94 V6 4.0 Ranger as well! And my transmission needs a band adjustment. But I want to build a prerunner so I was thinking I might as well swap it with a 5 Speed. How aNd where should I get a kit to do so. I have found a few used 5 speed transmissions from various places. But where do I get the pedals and other necessary parts. Please help!

There is no conversion kit as such. Everything you need is at the junkyard. 93~94 Ranger would be the safest choice for a donor although there are probably other years that will interchange for some of the parts. Be sure to get the transmission from a 4.0 because the bolt pattern is different from the 2.3 or 3.0 engines.

Here's some stuff you'll need. There could be a few odds and ends that I didn't think of.

Transmission, clutch disc, pressure plate, flywheel
Engine/transmission harness (or hack the automatic harness)
Manual PCM (or possibly get yours reprogrammed)
Clutch master cylinder, push rod and line
Clutch pedal position switch
Clutch/brake pedal assembly
