Looking for a 5.0 for your Ranger?
Not sure of how many of you are from the Canton Ohio area, I'm a few hours away, but there's a place up there called Pull-a-part where you...obviously, pull parts lol.
Me and a friend of mine went up looking for a driveshaft and passenger side fender flare for his 94 Ranger. I got to walking around and looking for Explorers for a possible OHC project. I stumbled on a Explorer with the 5.0 V8 option. Looks like it was hit in the side....no front end damage. Not really sure why it ended up there, it looked like it could be fixed.
Anyways, popped the hood and everything, as of 2/12/10, was still intact. Nothing missing off the motor that I could see except the battery. Odometer read 155,000 miles. Just wanted to post it up in case anyone was thinking of doing the swap. I hear it doesn't cost much at all to pull a motor and tranny from that place. They have a website too.
Don't touch that please, your primitive intellect wouldn't understand things with alloys and compositions and things with... molecular structures. -Ash
