1980 Ford Courier

I've got a 1980 ford Courier made in Japan by Toyo Kogyo. It has a 2.3L I4. Is this the same engine used in the Ranger or is this a Jap built engine? RB

It's the Ford engine. Couriers with the 2.3 are Ford engines, the 2000 and 2600 are Mazda engines.

Look on the emissions sticker under the hood. The displacement should be listed near the bottom of the sticker

If that is missing or has been painted over, look at the dist. Does it come out of the head near the front of the engine, or stick out the side of the block part way back?
Dist in the head = Mazda 2.0L (wide cast aluminum valve cover)
Dist in side of block = Ford 2.3L (narrow stamped steel valve cover)

Hello, thanks very much, the sticker with the dislpacement still there and yes, the Valve cover is the stamped stheel, so it's a 2.3 Ford Engine, that's really what I want to have.

Thanks very much for the help.

I got the spark plugs, whires, and air filter plus the front shocks to be installed today. will place some pictures later.

Thanks again.
emilio.
