Want to replace all running gear (axels,tranny,engine) from a 2004 ranger supercab 4x4, into a 1998 supercab (frame and body). Are they compatable?


I am fairly familiar with rangers but I think the cutoff year is 2000 for exchanges. 2000 back to 1989 are pretty much interchangable. The front suspention went to tortion bars in either 98 or 2000 and or springs. the older models had the old twin I beam suspension making the change over nearly imposible. You may be able to put the engine, transmission and the transfercase in with out to much problem but the rest is out.
I hope I have been of help. Good Luck.

The process of replacing front seal in automatic transmission in an 89 ford bronco II 4x4


You will need to remove the transmission. Disconnect the battery. Remove the starter. You may have to remove or drop the exhaust from the exhaust manifolds to clear the tranny . Remove the front and rear drive lines. disconnect the transmission fluid lines at the transmission. Remove the lower inspection cover that will expose the torque converter and the flex plate or flywheel. Rotate the converter and remove the bolts that secure it to the flex plate. Disconnect the linkage to the transmission and the transfer case and pull it up and out of the way. Remove the rear transmission mount and bolts and crossbrace the mount is secured too. Be sure to support the the transmission before removing the transmission mount. Place a transmission jack under the transmission and secure it to the jack with a chain or nylon ratchet strap. remove the remaining bell housing bolts and pull back on the tranny gently and you will need to lower it as you roll it back to clear the input shaft. Be sure to not let the converter fall out the front as you lower the tranny. When you have it clear from the vehicle you can remove the converter. Then you can use a seal remover or a flat bladed screwdriver to pierce the edge of the seal and gently remove the old seal. Install the new seal and install in the reverse order you removed everything. You might want to drain the torque converter before you lower the tranny.(YOU WILL SEE A PLUG ON THE CONVERTER THAT YOU CAN REMOVE TO DRAIN IT) It will make it much lighter to manipulate. Also when you place the converter back onto the input shaft be sure to seat the converter. It will slide on then you must rotate the converter to to get it to line up with the front pump coupler and it will seat the rest of the way. If you do not do this you will ruin the front pump when you start the vehicle. And be sure to refill the tranny when you start it again. You will loose around 5 quarts when you drain theconverter. This is a simple process for an experienced person, but not for a beginner. If you need help ask. Don't do what you don't know how to accomplish. You have your personal safety to consider here. You will need quite a few tools also. Good luck. I hope this helps give you some type of guidance.

How do i remove the transmission from a 2001 ford taurus


this is a big job,you will need to dissconnect the battery, then you will need an engine support bar to hold and lower the engine from the top. you will have to remove the battery and the bracket and also airbox, next is to raise the car and remove the wheels and then seperate the lower balljionts on both sides, remove the axle nuts and remove the axles. then remove the swaybar ends, next is to put engine support on the top of the engine and then remove the frame from under the engine and trany, before the frame can come out you will need to remove the exhaust system and also unbolt the steering rack from the steering shaft, make sure to lock wheel so it doesnt turn,remove lines from rack, when you remove the lower frame the steering rack and all the frnot end componets like the swaybar and lower control arms will come out with the frame you will need to unbolt the front and rear engine mounts, leave the trany mount bolted for now,after the frame is out you will then remove the bolt on the trany mount, this is the mount where the battery sits at the rear of the tranny, lower the engine slowly and just a bit. next is to remove the starter and flywheel covers, you will then remove the converter bolts that hold the flywheel to converter on tranny, next is to remove the tranny bbolts, make sure to leave one bolt on for now.next is to lower engine support enough so that the tranny has enough room to come out, next install tranny jack under tranny and remove last bolt holding it,then pry away from engine always checking to make sure all bolts are out and also all wire connections unhooked, like wiring harness to tranny and selector switch connector and speedometer connection, and tranny will seperate and then you slowly lower to ground, to install reverse directions. good day.

Manual clutch is out, needs replaced. Need to know tear down proceedure, front wheel drive unit and this is the first front wheel unit i have worked on


probably have to remove driveline, maybe remove awd unit, unbolt tranny, and lower it. unbolt and slide clutch plate and disc out. fairly simple task. make sure you use the alignment key that comes with the clutch :) tranny is kinda heavy so use a jack or tranni stand. need more detailed info just ask and ill look further into your specific car :)

How to remove a 68 ford mustang fender?


The fenders don't have to come off to remove the motor. Scribe a line around the hood hinges where they're attached to the hood and then get a friend to help remove the hood. Remove radiator. Disconnect exhaust, fuel lines, electrical connections, motor mount, hoses, remove tranny mounts, disconnect tranny linkages and cooler lines. Drop rear U joint and remove drive shaft. Plug drive shaft hole with a rubber stopper or a rag. Use a chain and an engine hoist to remove the engine/tranny as a unit then separate the tranny from the engine. Sounds like a lot of work, but it's a lot easier than trying to remove the engine out the front. Besides, you've got a welded in radiator mount to contend with. Reverse everything to put engine back in. A couple of 6 packs and a friend or two to help and you're done in 3 to 5 hours (depends on quality of friends mechanical abilities!)
