98 ranger 2.5 2wd to carb and t5 questions

I have a 98 2wd 2.5 5speed ranger.i want to swap in a carb 302 and t5.i know explorers are good v8s to use if ur going efi but i want carb.
Can i use any 302 and do i have to get a double sump pan.
What mounts can i use.frame and motor
I want to keep the ac
What do i use for a alternator and power steering pump
Can i use the stock radiator or better to get a ex rad
I would alsi like to keep it manual trans.would a t5 from a mustang be best choice and how can i keep the hydrolic clutch.
Im sure there will be more questions as i gather the parts and start the swap.
Oh and this is a budget build.kinda.lol.thanks for reading and thanks for all the help in advance
