There is a guy who wants to trade his V6 4.0L Ranger for a car, I am thinking for offering my Golf. However before that, I need to know if the trans can be changed. it's got everything I want save for a Manual trans, truck is in good shape.(and mostly stock.)
I am new to working on cars/trucks, but I am mechanically inclined.
I know I need a few things.
-Manual trans. What year and type can I use? I think Mazda after 1993 or something are the same. Right? So Rangers, some Mazdas, maybe the Explorer?
-Clutch/Brake Pedal assemblies and clutch cable
-Maybe the ECU. (or whatever module I need.)
-Steering column, or maybe the Auto "shifter" can be removed, and the "manual" column covers put on.
-Manual Shifter and hopefully some kind of plate. (or do i need to break out the grinder.)
Is this right?
Here's the truck.
