I've been doing some research and reading on swapping in a 4.0. However I cannot find concrete info on what year of explorer is just a engine harness/PCM swap versus a engine harness/PCM/dash wiring. I've acquired a 94 explorer. Anyone use a 94 for their conversion?
Thanks

I'm in the process of a 4.0L swap. I'm using an '87 dash/harness and a '93 Ranger engine/harness. I haven't gone thru that particular write up but I found all the Ford wiring diagrams and have gone thru wire by wire. So far all there have been all the required corresponding wires needed but now I have a lot of soldering to do to join them. The '93 had a white, big round plug that I labeled all the wires from, the B2 dash harness has multiple connectors with corresponding circuits. My swap is more complicated since the B2 is an 84 and it didn't have enough required wires to do the swap "easily". Luckily I had the '87 B2 donor so I swapped the entire dash/harness, underhood harness and rear body harness to make it easier with electric fuel pump and such.

Where did you acquire the wiring diagrams?
Thanks
