I have an 87 Ranger STX. I cant really find much info on this swap. What would be involved to do the swap?? From what I can find, the M5OD should bolt right on with a new floor plate. But I have a feeling that something else would be need. Any help would be nice. Thanks.

Trans length is off. This means drive shafts need replaced and the cross member relocated. Also the connection for the slave line is very different, meaning you at least need a line.
