Explorer manual transmission swap questions

explorer manual swap

Re-install the nuts and bolts I left the driver side 13mm bolt out because it was a pain 9. Measure resistance between solenoid terminals. This explorer is going to be a totally budget build. These sockets are the female Torx bits not the usual male Torx sockets. Pull back the carpet a little that will allow you to get your hand up the the floor hole cover. What kind of lift is it? Same model numbers might work differently as the conntrols might be different and if the wirings do not match, you might need to swap the valve body.

Transmission Swap Problem: Hi, I Have Swapped Out My Automatic ...

explorer manual swap

If solenoid output state does not change, go to next step. The truck was dynoed at 414 horsepower and 414 ft-lb of torque to the rear wheels. How hard are the pedals to put in? Are they the exact codes? Remove the passanger seat from the truck. Remove the 4 13mm nuts that are around the brake plunger 4. Your support is greatly appreciated. The way I recommend doing this swap is to have a donor vehicle.

Unfortunately the integral bellhousings on the Mazdas won't let you just use the 2. Step 2 Notes: - This is probably the easiest part of the whole swap. It took me about 3 months from the time I started swapping to actually having the trans in and shifting gears. Step 2 Pictures: - These 2 pictures show the parts that you will install here and the tools used to do this steps swap. I found the when I did mine it went alot smoother installing a piece here and a piece there.

The adapter sits a little lower than what it was before on my 3. Over tightening these bolts can crack the plastic base of the slave cylinder. Also the slave cylinder has a different part. Thanx for all the help in advance. How come you haven't registered? Yeah, the auto tranny is toasted big time and the cooler has a big leak in it. So shouldnt the bellhousing bolt pattern be the same or very similar? Sounds to me like you need to clean out your hubs.

Automatic To Manual Swap

explorer manual swap

Because it wouldn't hurt to swap that out either because I had to run that copper head gasket sealer shit through it. Don't forget that you need a new to you starter. Well mine wouldn't be a daily driver until I have it finished. I also came to a problem when I started to install the V8 power steering lines that I bought from fast parts network. That is the main reason for the manual.

Remove the small kotter pin off the brake pedal; slip everything that is on the pedal off 3. Speedometer: Quote: 1998-2000 Rangers: 1999-2001 Explorer uses the same type of speedometer system as the 1998-2000 Ranger - no modifications needed. They are mostly right there within easy reach with the floor hole plate out. You can use your ground wiring Big Black Wires from the Ranger, but you must use the Explorer Power wires The big red wires going to fuse box - the other going to the starter. Oh well, custom always results in modifying something else. There isn't a lot of parts really to have, it is just kinda tough finding the right ones and getting them used in good shape. You will have to cut a hole in your carpet though if you don't do the vinyl floor swap.

5.0L V8 Swap

Ive always wished that it was manual shift so I figured what better time would it be than when we have the motor already out. You'll need to swap out the pedal assembly, which is just a bolt in assembly. I'm keeping my original Borg Warner Transfer Case in my truck but I need to buy an adapter kit for this. The transmission in my truck measured 29. The price split is insignificant since a used one will need surfaced. The tray doesn't fit directly in the Ranger, so you'll need to drill 2 new holes and put a sheet metal screw in there. I'm still looking for a cheap donor truck and extra cash lol.

Use the long flat head screw driver to pry up the floor pan cover and slide it out from under the carpet. Yes, I'm wearing flip flops but I normally drive barefoot. Wiggle the brake pedal assembly out 7. If I'm wrong about this, please correct me:thumbsup:. Well mine wouldn't be a daily driver until I have it finished.

Complete: Note: Motor looks low because the truck has a 3-inch body lift footer. If you have not yet received a password reset, please re-issue one here: This will send a password reset to your email address on file. If battery voltage exists, go to next step. Other than that nothing else needs modifying. This way, I have the proper driveshaft, as it had a slightly larger diameter anyway. The hole dont really need to even be as big as the outline, just cut it smaller if you want I did my swap in a weekend. I find this to be a necessary part because the engine wiring connector is located in a different spot from the V6 to V8.
