Not the same blocks... same 60° V-6 family though... Cologne engine family
by Ford of Germany. Add in the 2.6L Capri engine too, it was also available
in the Pinto and Bobcat. A very compact engine, the 4.0 I believe has a
higher deck height than the others, and has gone through it's own evolution
and product improvement as an engine series. Millions made... don't forget,
1 of every 4 SUVs on the road is an Explorer, and then add in all the
derivatives / siblings (all AWD & some 2WD Aerostars, and Ranger
Thanks. Reason I was asking - I have a '75 Bobcat wagon that I plan to do
some work on. It's already been customized into a "Crusin' Wagon" by a
previous owner. I was wondering about the possibility of using fuel
injection off a later model 2.9. Or maybe just drop in a later model 2.9. I
looked at one once, and it looks like they redesigned that troublesome
thermostat setup the 2.8 had.
