I have a 2000 ranger w/a 5.0 out of a 99 explorer. I am wanting to do the 347 crate engine, my question is can I use the cam sensor and all the electrics for the 5.0 on a 347 crate engine instead of using the distributer..

That balancer is not made by them, it's a stock Explorer balancer(50oz) that they drilled into to re-balance it to 28oz. That is the common choice for a 347 with the Explorer PCM etc, but note it's not for high rpm. Keep the rpm down if possible with that OEM balancer, it will come apart over time if it sees 6000rpm or more.

Lol, sorry for not noticing how old this was. Thanks for the advice on the rpms also. I do not plan to do any excursions in to the 6k rpm range so that should be fine.
