>>>When did FORD come out with the 2.8 L engine, and what all was it used
>in?

The 2.8L is based on the 2.6L which is based on the 2.3L which dates back to
the early 70's. The 2.8L is one version of the famous Cologne V-6 which
also spawned the 2.9L and the current 4.0L that is available in the Ranger
and Explorer. I believe the new 4.0L SOHC uses the basic Cologne
"architecture" too.

Subject: FTE Small - 2.8 engine history

The first 2.8 I ever saw was in my 74 Mustang II, strong power plant for
the weight. The 2.8 used solid lifters and a direct drive timing gear
set. The 2.9 in my 89 Bronco II uses the same block and most every other
part with the difference in the head milling, fuel injection, hydraulic
lifters and chain timing gears. In fact I used extra rockers and
pushrods that I had originally purchased for the 2.8 to rebuild the 2.9
because they measured out the same.

Yeah Ron, there's a couple things you can do. First of all get off of AOL.
Secondly, scrap the Mac.

Just sharing what I learned!

I recently put a six inch lift on my Ranger. Can somebody tell me how tall my
garage door is?
