Yep, we have members that have done this over and over...you would make a mounting bracket and bolt a slave cylinder from a probe or 280 ZX to the bracket, and it would ride right on the clutch fork...I have seen brackets that are just angle iron bolted to the bellhousing, and I have seen it where they bolt to the two eyelets on side the trans...I can dig up some threads you can look at if you'd like

So I know it's been a really long time since I've been to (TRS) but
I wanted to tell everyone that I did finish the ranger years ago its had 85,000 plus miles put on it over the years ...I put the truck together drove it around the block and my uncle had to have it...he drove it for work daily for all these years the used engine finally got tired so we put a remanufactured 351w in it 6 months later the trans went bad so I put a reman aod in it ......then I sold it to a good friend a year ago he is still driving it daily

I know I've been gone from the account for several years. But I'll check in more often especially now since i'm going to be putting together another ranger with a 5.0 efi and 4r70w

I'll get pics up tomorrow.about a month ago I got a 2000 shortbed reg cab 2wd it's already had several things done tubular a arms uppers &lowers explorer 8.8
It's already had a 5.0 swapped so the pats stuff is all ready done
I got the truck with no interior and no engine and trans .. but I have all ready kinda pieced the interior back together and I picked up a 5.0 .....and 4r70w complete pull out from a 99 2wd exlporer with 92k miles so I'll start putting it together soon .... planning on it being my daily for awhile it's going in plain Jane simple ...debating .....on building headers...but mite just use the cast iron manifolds ..I know headers and exhaust are the only sooop ups I want on it

I haven't taken any pics of it at all yet and I just drug it home from the farm last night but I'll get a few tomorrow and post them
