..Personally, I like steering them to threads I find either very useful or informative and I believe it's a big part of sharing the information on this Forum.. ..;)

..Hopefully the OP's will take the time to read these informative threads and find their answers there...

...If not, they can usually ask that thread writer (since they are experienced in that exact application in question) a question in their thread in case something was missed and all future readers can benefit from it...:biggthump

..:shifty_ey ...I'm heading back under my rock before I get into trouble..

Also make sure that your manual computer is 93 or 94 due to EGR being added in those years.

It needs to be setup for the 4.0, so a ranger or explorer OBD1 computer can be used.

The b2 doesn't have egr, so it won't work.

I would contact someone that would know for sure, I have never heard of a manufacturer doing that and would be surprised if it were true (no offense intended). Start a thread in the engine forum asking for anyone that has rebuilt an auto tranny Exploder engine... call Jasper engines, call a Ford dealer, if your tranny is shot and you aren't driving your truck pull the tranny now and look for yourself. Jack up your engine and remove the oil pan.

94 limited on 35's

About 5-6 years ago i was looking to rebuild the 4.0l in my Ranger. Every rebuild kit I saw or asked about was listed as 2 options "manual or auto trans". No one could tell me the difference and the prices were the same. I guess this was the difference.

But I can tell you I did a few auto to manual swaps in 4.0l trucks. One of them went atleast 150k miles without any bearing problems.
