    Change clutch forks on M50D-R1 without dropping transmission - 1996 XLT

    My friend recently changed the M50D-R2 clutch forks in his 1991 ford f150 by removing an access panel in the cabin. I am wondering if I can do the same on my M50D-R1 in my 1996 xlt 4x4. Also is there much difference in the floor pan between a 1996 2wd and 4x4 ranger extended cab.

    I have a 1989 V6 2.9L 2wd ranger. It has a mazda m50-r1 transmission in it.

In my truck the starter is on the driver's side and the...

    R1 output shaft bushing

    Hi all. I've got 1992 2wd M50D-R1 Pulled the output seal today. Had a hard time of it but got it free. In the process some errant strikes of a screw driver landed blows to the area past (ie inside of) the seal I was removing. It looks like a brass bushing or sleeve. I've put a few nicks in it...

    R1 housing leak; shop advice

    Hello all. I've got a 1992 2wd 2.3 liter with the M50D-R1 transmission. I very recently started hearing a classic input bearing noise, which is to say I hear a whine increase with RPM in all gears except 4th. I decided to get down and check the fluid levels, found the entire transmission and...

  11. Replacing the rubber plugs in a M50D-R1

    I found in the Manual Transmission tech page that I have a M50D-R1, and that all three rubber plugs need to be replaced.
