OK, I just bought this Ranger late last night. It's suppose to be a 1992 Ranger with a 5.0 motor out of a 1993 Mustang and a T-5 transmission. It's been strictly used a drag car, but I bought it and want to change it to a daily driver. The first thing I want to do is get some heat in this thing. The heater core is there with the discharge and suction lines sticking through the fire wall. Here is the problem. The heater box is cut open so the valve cover will fit. Is there a heater box from another vehicle (ex: Ford Focus) that will fit in the truck and have clearance around valve cover? Or do I need to fabricate a new custom one?
I need to do more research on the truck and figure things out still. The motor has a carburetor, but why? If it's from a 1993 mustang, then it should be fuel injected. Like I said, this is day one of ownership and need to educate myself more. Any help would be appreciated.
