Howie, moving up in the world buddy. Jamison posted one in the classified section he found on ebay. It might have the info you are looking for.

Howie, As always I will gladly lend you a hand by letting you know that the crank comes in a 1998- 2001 Ford Ranger or Mazda B2500 pick-up. Hope this is what you were looking for!!

The 2.5 crank fits the small journal block.You must use spacers in the large journal block,unless you buy a billet 2.5 crank made for the large mains.Most race part suppliers have the 2.5 crank reground with 2in.rod journals so you can use the 5.7 rod set up.

You only grind to 2.0 for the chevy version of the 5.7 rod. You can order 5.7 rods specifically for the ford journal size. It is a catch 22. The cost difference to grind the crank and go the 2.0 route is almost the same as going with a 5.7 rod that is actually made to fit the stock journal size. Just an observation.
