As far as I know all Lima engines(2.0l/2.3l/2.5l), 1984 to 2001 Rangers/Mazda B-2300, had starter on the same side, passenger side I think

Lima engine has a unique transmission bolt pattern, so trans from a 3.0l or 4.0l won't fit.
The Mazda M5OD-R1 trans has integrated bell housing so can''t be swapped between different engines

But if it fits and starter is on the other side then you could run a longer, and larger cable to it.
