newbie looking for help
i recently received an 87 ram50 2.0 auto 2wd for free... frame is straight body is amazing motor has been taken apart and been apart for a number of years. I've done the 5.8 in a ranger, 350 in an s-10 so looking for v8 power. I've done the search and not finding what I want (but honestly I've always been bad with those---my add kicks in lol)
two swaps im looking at... first I a ford 302/aod/ranger rear end/Toyota spindles
-motor/trans mount pretty straight forward?
-rear diff mount?
-what should I grab spindles from?
-im a ford boy whats the diff and pros/cons of the 727/909(?) trans
-rear end strong enough?
-drive shaft mods?
any other relevant advice? Thanks!!
Welcome to mightyram. There are a number of swaps going around but one of the best places to start looking for info will be in Fordubishi's thread as he's done a great V8 conversion to his Gen 1 - http://www.mightyram50.net/vbulletin/showthread.php/557-The-Fordubishi
