So I plan on doing a 351 window swap and 4x4 conversion on my 1985 ford ranger recently I found a bronco II that has a 351 with a 4x4 4 speed trans that was rolled over and the body was taken off the frame And I want to buy it to do the swap on my truck since the 351 was on a bronco II It should already have most of what I need to swap it I’m just wondering what it would take to actually get it in and running for example it doesn’t have a wiring harness but I’m wondering if I could just use the original one or if it has a hydraulic clutch or cable one as for the 4x4 conversion I’m also wondering how much harder that would be to do at the same time the motor also has no wiring harness but I’m wondering if all I would have to do to get it to run is wire the alternator and get a msd kit

I think you need a mentor or helper with a little bit of experience to help you with it on site. There is only so much we can do over a computer screen. This is a pretty big project to start learning on, especially the wiring. If you want to start teaching yourself about the wiring, research what each wire does on the 1985 ranger, and then you can decide if you can use that wire or not for your swap.
