Found a cheap, low-mileage 2.3l motor+all accessories+radiator from a '94 Ranger, dual-plug head and all. My engine has been feeling like it's wanted to :poo: out its own guts for quite some time now. Anyone have any advice, tips, or information in general about this? Any reason it wouldn't work or wouldn't be a good idea? Any and all advice, ideas, constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated. Thank you everyone!

What year is your 4 banger ?

The only advise is to do t bg e timing belt, water pump, and thermostat while you have it out. The engines are the same basic LIMA 2.3. I dont know if the oil pans are the same. Depending on your year you may run into issues making a dual spark head work.

Should be an easier swap.
