2.8 v-6, or I-6 (170)? If it's the 170/2.8 I-6 it's a different pattern for sure. I did a bit of searching. There are different incarnations of the ford v-6's, even of the same size.

Check this link

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...using_patterns

There are some errors on that page. It's also not complete. I don't see 3.0 and 2.8 listed as having the same bolt patterns.

What year ranger?
What year and what did the 2.8l come out of?

If it's the Duratec V-6 for sure you are out of luck.

I've got part of a hood prop from a Cavalier on my car. When you are making up custom stuff you take parts that will work from where ever you find them first
