If the engine still retains the factory 79 balancer and balance, then you'd need a flywheel with a 28 oz out of balance. Mustangs from 83 up used 50 oz out of balance, including all explorer engines are also 50 oz. A mustang flywheel bolts right up to it and works perfectly. The flywheel must match your bellhousing as well as balance. I have done a ton of explorer engine swaps into mustangs, just contemplating doing an explorer engine into a ranger right now.
Try looking at a turbo coupe slave cylinder and bearing, and couple that to your factory ranger clutch master cylinder. There is a guy on corral that did the T5 swap into his ranger, seemed to work really well. Also, Mcleod makes a slave bearing to slide over the T5 factory bearing retainer from a mustang, but they are a bit pricey compared to a stocker from oreilly's.
