The ex's run 3 shocks on the axle. The third one is in the center and keep the pinion from rocking up.

FWIW, i had my wrecked 98 5.0 delivered for 650.

Last I remember hearing is in Ontario it is Illegal to put a motor older then your vehicle (ex. 1998 motor in a 1999 truck). I may or maybe not be correct on this one just make sure the government will pass a safety on before you go and do all this work.

All 5.0 V8 Explorers got the GT-40P heads. Which are different from the GT-40 head. The P head has the spark plugs coming out at a different angle, which requires special headers.

I'm pretty sure the GT-40 heads only came on 93-95 Cobra's and some crate motors.

GT-40P heads can be ID'd by the "GTP" on the head.

due to some dead batteries i could not take pictures

but i could not see any raised markings on the heads

but there is a big V with a #8 in between the V
and a raised oil fill neck
if that is any info
( they also have a couple of generation 3 rangers )

96's and very early explorers with 5.0s came with the original gt-40 heads as far as my research as seen online, early 97s have some but the eventually all went to p heads,

I plan on trying to find a similar motor and do plan to stick to efi, i dont know what the misistry will do, as long as the motor is efi and so is my truck it shouldnt matter what year it is, i was told by going to a v8 in the ranger it automatically puts me in a hot rod category for the etest,


Well see i guess, all in time, and go from there

you had better double-check on that idea

i am pretty sure that ontario emission laws state that the replacement engine must be the same year or newer
( the same cubic inch size ,,i am not sure about )

I'd definitely be interested if the right project comes up. Since I sold the Mustang I've been looking for a new project!

okay. i stopped by the wrecker today

the owner says he will sell the engine / tranny / trans-case for $1000.00 dollars
he will need 1 day to remove the combo for you
( he requires atleast a down payment 1st )

this explorer also has the lift struts attached to the hood hinges
( never seen that before on any explorer )

Make sure to get the battery cables and the fuel pump too. The regulator intank has a lower pressure than your ranger.

I would get a new radiator but the donor will work well too.
