Will a 3.0L engine out of a 1988 ford mini van automatic replace a 2.9L in a 1988 ranger manual 4X4?

The 2.9 engine is a completely different engine family than the 3.0. I had a '91 ranger with the 2.9, and that was coupled to a Mitsibushi transmission, where the 2.3, 3.0, and 4.0 engines with manual transmissions are all coupled to a Mazda r1 manual transmission. My point is this-I do not think that the transmission mounting is the same. There is 2.9 engines on e-bay on occasion.
