alright, so I have a friend that has an older mustang that has taken an automatic overdrive from behind a new 4.0 mustang, had it worked over, and put it behind a 351C ! My question is.... is the mustang 4.0, bellhousing pattern different than that of a 4.0 ranger? and again.... is the ohv 4.0 pattern different than that of the ohc 4.0? I really want to take a 5.0 from a exlporer, and set it in my 94 ranger, but I want to keep a 5 spd trans, and run my manual transfer case. I realize that it may not have the strength needed to back up the 5.0, but I believe that if I drive it like a responsible person ( which I am still trying to be ) it may hold up ! I am ready to be slammed on for this so what ever info you have is welcomed !
