3.0 help!!

OK, the junkyard is telling me only a 2002 eng. will work in my 2002 Ranger.This doesn't sound right. Why can't I use any year 3.0 Vulcan even if I have to put all externals on the other eng.? I have a V code flex fuel and know I would have to change injectors, fuel rails, intake and maybe a few other things to use a gas eng. I was hoping I could put all of the 2002 stuff on any Vulcan long block. Anybody have any info?

OK, I got a gas engine from a wrecked 2003 Ranger. I changed the injectors because they were different colors. The gassers were blue and the flex fuel were green. I fired it up yesterday and all is well. It runs like it did before.

Go figure!

I've intergraded different years and size engines on all kind of cars. All bolt-ins with switching all sensors to match the computer, when applicable (LOVE A CARB)! A lot of bone-yards have been hiring novice people to run the pc/phone. Their much cheaper then a real mechanic that they don't want to pay just for sitting on his or her but. Always remember this when ever, were ever you buy parts from a bone-yard. It really does pay to do all the research your self then asking someone that probable moved up from a fast food company.

Here's another note about your 3.0, It has the same bell housing bolt pattern from a Ford 5.0 V8. My T5 mounted up like it came with the 3.0.

Glad to see you went for it anyways!
