Why do I need to take off pan and value body?
I am looking into getting and auto tranny out of a bronco 2 that says i would need to change the shifter and I need to take off the value body and pan. Can anyone elaborate to me what I am missing. I have a 2.9 L V6 that I have to put heads back on to make the truck run. I was looking into maybe putting a different motor but don't really know what kind or size that would fit. I seen someone put a chevy 350 in a ford ranger.
My ranger is a 1988 Ford Ranger 4x4 extended cab and the guy that had it before me took out the auto tranny and wanted to put a 5 spd in and he also took the engine out of the truck and pulled the heads and said it dropped a lifter. I dont know to much more about that, but the truck parts are all over the place. Can you help I would greatly appreciate it.
