89 ranger transmission

I just bought an 89 ranger custom with a transmission label E87A that needs a rebuild or replaced. Can I replace it with an F67A?

Welcome to the forum

E8 = 1988
F6 = 1996

Just FYI

Those are both M5OD-R1 transmissions, but there are three things you need to find out.

1. these transmissions have integrated bell housings, can't be removed/swapped
2.3l Lima engine has unique transmission bolt pattern, so trans from 2.9l, 3.0l or 4.0l won't bolt to a 2.3l engine

2. it needs to be from a 2WD, 4WD trans won't work for you

3. Your 1988 uses a speedometer cable, which all rangers used thru 1994, in 1995 dash was changed to full electronic, so speedometer cable was removed.
A 1996 transmission may or may not have the speedometer hole in the tail shaft and the worm gear inside, my best guess would be no.

1994 or earlier would for sure have it.


So you want a M5OD-R1 transmission from a 1988(first year) to 1994 Ranger 2WD with 2.3l engine

Thanks for the reply. this is my first transmission replacement so I don't have much information on the subject.

That is why there are Ranger forums, and other forums.

Share the information, you will know more about something else than I do, for sure, and one day I or someone else will ask the question and you will have the answer.
