Locate a complete 302 power train but use a unit that is carbed, no fuel injection, the job is difficult enough without the hassle of integrating in control systems. A wrecking yard might be a good place to start or fond an older rig that could be the donor car. If you live in a state that requires emission and safety testing it will no longer pass.

Also look at some of the ranger forums, there is a fair amount of info on 302 conversions.

I have a 5.0 motor just can't find the right transmission, I went to a junk yard a found a 94-96 6 cylinder 5 speed transmission and was hoping that would work, or if I had to find an adapter plate
