Yes, '92 - '93 Mustangs and '92 - '01 Rangers will have the round tooth sprockets.

Not a junkyard part per say, but for those with the stock or shorty radiator, the lower hose from a 1992 - 2001 Toyota Camry works great as an upper hose replacement. Got mine from Advance Auto for $20, in stock, no fuss. Part number is DAYCO 71679.

I trimmed what you can see there off the thermostat end. For a stock radiator, you'll need to take some off the radiator end too. The extra length there is what you need for Mike's short setup.

Starting off 2017 with a small addition to this thread...

~'95 - 2004 Land Rover V8 Exhaust manifold bolts. They measure 50mm vs. 52mm for stock 2.3T bolts, so close enough. The head is a 12-point, 12mm, so much smaller that the stock 6-point, 17mm. This might make them useful for some headers where clearance is a challenge. They also come with spacers which could be used as-is or machined in some way.
