92 2.3 swap to a 97 2.3 ?
Hey guys Ive been running this ranger for a while knowing its on its last leg, and after getting compression of 120 on cylinder 4, 30 on cylinder 3, 15 on cylinder 2 and 80 on cylinder 1(not to mention adding oil in the cylinders and re-checking all the compression went up at least 20psi and cylinder 1 went up 50 psi) I've decided that replacing the engine will be the cheapest easiest way out. I found an engine out of 97 that looked good with no leaks and had around 120-140 psi in every cylinder, so I got the engine ready to pull out but before i pull the engine and swap it in I'd like to make sure that it will work in my 92 without swapping the wiring harness and computer. I'm going to use the 92 intake, vacuums, exhaust and what not but the main thing I think are going to be crank sensor and major things like that. thanks guys any input and help is much appreciated.
