need some info on swap.
Currently have a 1993 Ranger with 3.0L 5-speed tranny..and a 1999 Ranger with 3.0L Flex fuel with auto tranny....The 1999 has heavy front end damage..Not affecting the engine..it still starts and drives..just has slight bend in the frame....So i'm wanting to swap the engine from the 1999 Ranger to the 1993 Ranger. The 3.0L in the 1993 had a distributor on it the 1999 has a coil pack of course......anyone ever done this kind of swap?????What problems will i run in to?????The engine in my 1993 had a blown head gasket when i bought it and turns out it also had a blown freeze plug...broke down the top end of the engine and it was rusted from sitting up. Went to drain the oil and it was nothing but milky sludge...So engine is no good. Trying to save some money and use the 3.0L out of my 1999 since i already own it and i know it runs. some one give me pointers...would I be better of buying another engine from junk yard or will it be easy doing the 3.0l from the 1999???
