You should not fit it in a Ranchero!! Ford want Ford!!
I had one before and they are very powerful engines!
Motown Auto in Cape Town will find you parts.
Your first problem is the sump in the rear!

Olds 403 was a bored out Olds 350; def a good engine for its era (late 1970's).

If you look on the side of the block it got a large 403 cast no.
