Default 4.0 and 2.3 manual trans

just picked up a 92 xploder with a 4.0 and a 5 speed (M5OD-r1) the 5 speed is junk.

in my garage for no reason there is a 96, 2.3(that's blown) with a good 5 speed M5OD-r1. anyone see where i'm trying to go with this? could i be lucky enought that it would bolt up?

on the input shaft in the very front where is meets the first bearing, the bearing ran dry and welded itself to the shaft and broke it.

Make sure when you get a new one, replace the plugs on top with metal ones. Thats probably where the fluid went.
