No problem, I actually looked into it more, and my bellhousing is different so it won't work for me anyway.

The truck takes me 350 km (220 miles) on a 70l (18.5 US gallons) tank of gas... if I'm lucky. Gas that's 10 cents a liter more expensive than diesel.

Yep, the Cologne V6 is a bit of a pump-sucker. I had one.

I am about to start a Ranger conversion from 4L V6, so if the plate will work put me on the list. I also think I have found a way to make the Ford Cruise switches work with a VW ECU. More on that later if there is any interest.

As far as making adapters for the other bellhousing patterns I am entertaining the idea. For the time being I'm going to stick to the manuals. One could always purchase a used transmission out of lima motor Ranger to use in any v6 or duratec Rangers. They are so plentiful in the bone yards they go for $200-300. This was actually part of my development process - I bought three trannys to get four separate outputs from the CMM. That way I'm not left with a one-off bolt pattern that fits perfectly for one transmission ( the one measured) and fits like crap for the rest.

Paul, yes I am interested in how you plan to do this. I have my own way but I'm sure yours will be better. I'm still trying to understand the components in the CEL circuit you designed for Jimmy.

Does anybody know if the 4 cyl has a different bell housing than the V6? Mine has a 5 Sp manual, but I don't know what the bell housing is like yet. First I need to get a safety inspection, then the fun begins.

The Rangers only over got the Cologne V6 or the Vulcan V6, no Duratec. I am not sure of the different bellhousing patterns, but I am thinking they are all different, because the 4cyl has backwards mounting bolts on each side of the crankcase, which would be impossible on any V6 engine.

The v6 is most definitely different. I need to go back through my notes but I believe the old 2.8 and 4.0L (not sure if both OHV or SOHC) have the same pattern and the 3.0L is again something different.

I was refering to the 2.3L Duratec.

I've been following your swap since you first posted and was pretty disappointed (as I'm sure you were) of how that ended up. I look forward to seeing your next truck.

Default Out comes the motor

Nothing earth shattering here just the obligatory swap pictures of removing the old drivetrain. I was disappointed I couldn't remove the engine and tranny together. My load distribution bar only allowed so much of an angle so maybe it would work but I just found it easier to separate them and pull them out separately.

Time to remove the VW drivetrain: 30min (I will admit drivetrain removal is made easier when the radiator/header panel is sitting in the back seat when you start)

Time to remove Ranger drivetrain: 3 hours

Keep up the good work. Any reason you are opposed to doing a drawing/print of an adaptor plate?
