99ranger4x4 02-25-2008 05:22 PM

FI it mayneee haha

thats a nice engine, i wish i had one to toss in.

claytonrduvall 02-25-2008 05:24 PM

well i did have my hands on a 2001 explorer but got nervous on all the wring and sold it to my cousin, but i am going to keep it carb but i am worried about the c-4 trans, heard good and bad about them!

dlibson 02-25-2008 05:27 PM

C4 will be fine if you don't beat it and you maintain it!

claytonrduvall 02-25-2008 05:29 PM

yeah a few tell me that and a few say it will last a long time, who knows right

GregR 02-25-2008 07:48 PM

Are you going to put that into your '99? You might want to do a little research on what all you'll have to do to go with a carb. You might find you would have been better off with the '01 Explorer motor.

nice man

eh if he's not worried about emissions and legality it could be quite a bit easier

Roach2004 02-25-2008 10:03 PM

Yea I hate Texas for that part.

Found this about Texas might want to check your state

Rules regulating engine swapping are not make/model specific. The simple rule is that a vehicle must have all emissions components that were present when it was manufactured, which may include:

PCV - positive crankcase ventilation
ACL - air cleaner (thermostatic air cleaner)
AIS - secondary air injection
EGR - exhaust gas recirculation
EVAP - evaporative emission
CAT - catalytic convertor
SPK - spark control
FR - fillpipe restrictor
O2S - oxygen sensor

yeah in kentucky we lost the emissons testing, so any thing i do does not have to be inspected, etc, but yeah i am keeping it carbed and just the way it is, just taking it from the truck its in to my ranger!

After reworking the fuel system, getting the engine to run is not the problem. Getting everything else to work might be a headache.

claytonrduvall 02-27-2008 03:21 AM

what could be the headache

This is correct for Texas. Luckily, for most of the state, it is a visual only inspection, not a functionality inspection. *wink* *wink*

You're biggest headaches will be with the fuel system, guages, and wiring.

Where as, the '01 Explorer motor was as close to a bolt-in, plug-in swap as you could get.

claytonrduvall 02-28-2008 07:03 PM

yeah i know what stuff, just dont have to deal with a computer now and i am going to use aftermarket gauges, so wiring them wont be to bad, and the fuel system is going to be the hardest part i think!!

claytonrduvall 03-03-2008 04:03 PM

well i found out that my trans is not working properly , or better yet at all, i put it in gear and get nothing , i looked below to make sure it was not the cable and thats not broke, kinda stumped?

claytonrduvall 03-17-2008 03:05 PM

is this a good oil pan kit for my motor, i have been looking around, and came across this, http://store.summitracing.com/partde...FMS-M-6675-A50

dlibson 03-17-2008 06:56 PM

It is fine. You might find a better deal on Ebay.

n3elz 03-17-2008 06:59 PM

No emissions testing where you are? edit: Nevermind -- you answered that, lol...

Nice engine!

claytonrduvall 03-17-2008 07:42 PM

to be honest im not sure of the year of the motor, would this matter in the oil pan that i get for it!?

dlibson 03-18-2008 06:12 PM

No. Any Mustang double hump like you had will work.

claytonrduvall 03-19-2008 09:35 AM

alright good, i ordered it already from summit and its on the way, thanks

claytonrduvall 03-20-2008 05:25 PM

ok i have ran into another problem that i am kind of stumped on, i hooked up my trasfer case to make sure it would still work with out the factory trans/motor etc( just hoping it would work) , well it went into 4low and now will not go back or do any thing and im needing to rewire the motor or figure out what wires i will need to correct to make it functional again! if any one knows please help me out!
