Hello, I'm curious to know if the rare 4DS5 turbo diesel motor is able bolt to the stock ranger transmission that had the 2.8l,2.9L,4.0L ect or what 4x4 transmission there was available for it for those years which was like in 1980's. Thanks!

That the mitsu 2.3 turbodiesel?

It seems like i remember reading it would bolt to the gas 4 cylinder trans...but im not clear by any means.

I think it was an option 85-87 or 8

I have a TK5 (came behind 2.8L) and FM145/6 (fairly certain it's a 146 but I'd have to check to verify) to part with. Both have 1350 t-cases on them.
