Please explain to me why you wanted a failure prone automatic?
By definition the only "Strange problem" wth an automatic trans is that there
aren't more problems with them than there are.
as for "Crossover" do you mean the transmission crossmember?
and as for your "five inches", up down? front to back?
Next what did you take the auto out of?
Be VERY specific.
a 1990 Ranger should take the same transmission and shift linkage as an Explorer
with a column shifter, if the transmission you got is out of an earlier ranger (or an aerostar) there is no linkage that will mate to it and the vehicle
and the linkage arm on the A4LD is not easily replaceable even for the
more artisticly inclined experts.
