Doubt it.

Youre going from OBD II to OBD I and going from EDIS to a distributor.

It was like that when I found it.
Yeah, that electronical stuff is always the PITA. Fit - YES, without a bunch of hassles - NO.

You can use the 1991 Long Block(block with heads attached)
You need to swap over the 1998 front engine cover and crank pulley(for crank sensor), the upper and lower intakes(for fuel and sensor systems), to the 1991 long block
Also swap over the Cam sensor and synchro to replace 1991 distributor

So quite a few parts
For a more direct swap you would need a 1998-2008 3.0l Ranger or B3000 engine, but would still need to change some sensors most likely

Beside the OBD and spark system differences the Fuel system changed in 1998 and up Rangers
