1999 Expo sport, 4.0 ohv, auto, 4wd
I'm pulling the motor on the ranger. Supposed to put the Expo motor in the ranger, expo was a "donor" but is in decent shape except has reverse only. And a darn good reverse at that!
Would the tranny from the ranger fit in the expo 100%? Electronically identical are they or were there subtle nuances that made them different?
I am stepping up my "project schedule" because I'm taking another job closer to home and won't have the luxury of storing multiple crap vehicles, one or the other has to go. My V8 project is being parked in front of my garage where I can visit it daily for wrench turning..
From past experience they are exactly the same. Swap away Head Cheeze
