Enter your VIN into the "VIN Decoder" on the forum. Here's the link:

Were you able to determine if it was a Windsor or Romeo?

No windsor family motors were installed in any F series truck after 1997.
The tranny bolt pattern is different between the two families.
The windsor was never offered in 4.6l displacement.

There most certainly is a Windsor and a Romeo version of the 4.6. My 2002 Mustang HAS a Windsor 4.6 and my wife's Lincoln TC has a Romeo 4.6.

Also, my understanding is that the Windsor engines were heavier duty designs and were made for truck applications. No Winsdors in trucks after 1997?

No sorry, they're both the same 4.6 belt driven overhead cam modular motor. The windsor family of motors had pushrods.

From the 1990/2002 Ford Light Truck Parts Catalog / Text / Engine Code Charts / Section 60.1D / Page 1.

VIN Engine Code 6 = 1997/ 4.6L SOHC MFI = Romeo Engine Plant.

VIN Engine Code W / 1997/ 4.6L SOHC MFI = Windsor Engine Plant.

Now that's interesting... was the Windsor Engine Plant converting to Romeo production in 1997?

Ahh... I see what you guys are talking about now. This does not signify a difference in the motors though, a 4.6L SOHC is a "modular" motor regardles where it was built.

Don't feel bad... I didn't realize what Bill was saying either until I read his posts several times. Ha!
