Couldn't you just swap in the SOHC 4.0? I know that engine was available in the Exlorer in '98, did it come in the Ranger as well? If so, I would imagine it would be easier to swap it in than reworking the wiring and all for the 5.0, especially since the SOHC 4.0 has very similar power numbers to the 5.0 truck engine.

Just a thought...

Hey Chilli - Are you talking about an '88 Ranger or a '98 Ranger??

Sorry Cam... I was confused by your first post that said it was a 1998. My experience has been with a 1999 Explorer for which both the SOHC 4.0 and the 5.0 truck engine were offered.

I have seen both Rangers and Bronco II's with 5.0 transplants, so I know it can be done. Unfortunately, I can't provide any details, although it sounds like Blakwing may be able to dig up some info for you.

Sorry for confusing the issue....

Rick
