It should, but I can't say for sure. I do know that when looking up replacement crankshafts there's no distinction between manual or automatic so the bolt holes in the back of the crank should fit both.

There are a lot of Ford forums and probably some dedicated to the Ranger and those members should give the most accurate answers.
