knocking pretty good. Today i was given a 91 ranger 5 speed 2x4 with the

You shouldn't have any problems withe basic engine, some of the componets might be different but you can just swap them over.

The engine should swap easily. The pushrod engine was in both. The 4.0 SOHC was not offered until 99.

It will match and it would be wise to have a haynes manual by hand. The haynes explains step by step how to and was very helpful to me when i changed my 2000 engine. Mrredtruck!
