Ok I'm going to write this all out so anyone looking for this info will find it ..
My truck is a 2wd 1991 ford ranger ext short box standard cab.. It came factory with a 4.0 ltr , automatic transmission , and it had air conditioning ..
the motor and transmission I am swapping into the truck is a 1989 ford 5.0 out of a Lincoln town car, and the automatic transmission that was in the same car.
to install the motor I bought motor mounts for a 1990 ford mustang gt convertible . Part number 2725 for the drivers side mount and 2726 for the passengers side mount.
I found in my situation that with the passenger side in the back hole of the two on the frame cross member and the drivers side in the front hole everything seems to line up and sit straight ..
I put the head on the passenger side with the valve cover to test the heater box clearance and found there to be plenty of room..
Once I install the transmission I will continue with more pictures and info.. for now hears all the pics I have of my progress ..
The motor sitting in the engine bay
passenger side motor mount.. its still siting away from the frame because I need to make a hole for the locator dowel ..
The drivers side looks a little crooked but its just the weird angle I had to take the picture
Heater box clearance without the head and valve cover ..
Hears the same pic with the head and valve cover on ..
hears a pic of the clearance from the oil filter outlet to the steering box.
any questions or more pics wanted let me know ...
