2.3 question.

so i have a friend with an 91 notchback 2.3, recently threw a rod and i've been helping him look for a motor. the only donor i've found after 2 weeks of looking all i've found is a ranger. i know they're very similar but would it be a drop in swap or would the wiring harness have to come with it? what exactly are all the differences between the two engines?

As long as the ranger is a dual plug engine (and not a 2.5) as well it will drop right in, they were the same engine.
