Pinto/ranger 5 speed manual trans questions

Will a 90's ford ranger 5speed manual that was bolted to a 2.3 litre engine, bolt up to my 2.0 litre 72 Pinto engine?

Yes it will, it won't work without a hydraulic clutch, but I think there a very good transmission for the 4cyl. Especially with 3.73 gears which I'm pretty sure is what they were built for. Non special ordered trucks generally came with 3.73.. They are M5-OD- R1's which translates to Mazda 5spd overdrive revision 1. A slightly heavier duty version was the R2 and that came behind a lot of 5spd F-150's, which they are 'ok' suited for.. Hurst makes a shifter, and you could bolt a shorter Hurst shift lever on it. Stock height shifter might be a little 'rat finkish' in a Pinto..

They were found bolted to a few 2.0L's in '88. Rare as most 4cyl trucks in the 80's had the Toyo Kogo 5spd ( little diffrent shifter position, but would also work in your Pinto ). But the M5-OD came out in '88 and it was the last year for the 2.0L carb'd. That combo does exist
