Instead of trying to cut and paste an engine together, I would buy a compatible crate engine. Then all you have to do is swap parts from the original to the crate. Crates will run around $1500 or so, depending on what you want. Plus you know it's new and nothing will blow up in a month or two after you've done all that work.

I'm with Reelin68. It's best to stick with the same displacement engine and crate (or remanufactured Long Blocks) come with a warranty. The Ranger is a durable - and rebuildable - little truck. The easiest and least troublesome way to keep it is to keep it stock - unless your made of time and money.
