3. Stock Transmission Info Rangers

STOCK TRANSMISSIONS:
On some Ford stock transmissions, we have listed a transmission identification code. This number is found on the driver’s side door of your vehicle.

C5: The C5 was used in Ranger / Bronco II vehicles 1984-85. It has the same dimensions as the C4. If you have the C5, you simply need to change your bellhousing, torque converter, and valve body from a C5 V8 application. This is to prevent having to bother with the computer module. Failure to change these parts will cause the torque converter to lock up. Some customers have told us that it is cheaper to obtain a C4 transmission and install the C5 tailhousing & output shaft into the C4. Either one of these options work well. The original shift column linkage can be retained with some slight modifications.

C3: The C3 is identified by a “V” transmission code. The overall length of this transmission is 24”. We do not offer any adapters to retain this transmission. If your vehicle has this transmission, you will need to select one of the Ford transmissions that we offer transfer case adapters for.

A4LD: The A4LD is identified by a “T” transmission code. The overall length of this transmission is 28.687”. We do not offer any adapters to retain this transmission. If your vehicle has this transmission, you will need to select one of the Ford transmissions that we offer transfer case adapters for.

The following transmissions are all stock 4 & 5 speeds that Bronco II and Ranger vehicles might have been equipped with. These transmissions are considered light-duty. We offer an adapter plate to fit most of these transmissions to a standard Ford bellhousing. We’ve had customers experienced both good & bad results when retaining the stock manual transmission. Some considerations, with regard to engine size, tire size, and driving habits should be addressed when retaining these stock manual transmissions.

Toyo Koygo 4 speed: Transmission code “X”, with an O.A.L. of 24”. We offer a bellhousing adapter to retain this transmission.
Toyo Koygo 5 speed: Transmission code “5”, with an O.A.L. of 25.937”. We offer a bellhousing adapter to retain this transmission.
Mitsubishi 5 speed: Transmission code “D”, with an O.A.L. of 28.687”. We offer adapters to retain this transmission.
Mazda 5 speed: This transmission can normally be found in late model vehicles 1988 & newer. The bellhousing and transmission are integral (one piece). We do not offer any adapters to retain this transmission.

The 4 & 5 speeds listed above (that we offer adapters for) will require the following adapter: PN712541
