1971 2.0L
« on: January 26, 2019, 01:44:20 PM »
When looking up parts im seeing that the 2.0L came in either a 1989cc or a 1993cc. It seems that the 1993 was only in US and the 1989 was US/Canada? Different pistons? Everywhere im seeing that the vin X is the 2.0 but nothing saying which one it its.. Anyone able to enlighten me?

The short:
2.0 (TL20)
The 2.0 L (1,993 cc) was used in many Ford vehicles from the early 1970s. Due to its robustness and high tuning potential, it was often used as an aftermarket engine upgrade or base for building race and rally engines not exclusively in Ford cars. The engine has bore of 90.82 mm (3.58 in) and 76.95 mm (3.03 in) stroke giving the displacement of 1993 cc. It was manufactured in several variants:

 I can't verify the accuracy of the wiki but present it for consideration. There can be confusion between the early Pinto engine (71-73, 2.0 EAO) and a 74 and up Pinto 2.3 Lima engine that had a 2.0 version in later Rangers. Often the EAO and the Lima engines are incorrectly thought to be the same engine, but they are not. That MIGHT be where you are getting two different displacements from.

As whitsend mentioned there were 2 distinctly different 2.0 engines, one was the early 7 1-73 german built engine sometimes called the SOHC or "metric" and a limited production varient of the 1974 and later 2.3 lima engine used in the mid 90's ranger.

The original SOHC 2.0 was used in pintos 1971-1973,  also produced in europe until the mid 90's and was used in seirras.. some were turbocharged  and could deliver up to 300 hp. No other dsplacement variations were produced.

It can be easily identified by the camshaft mounting which has 3 bearings.

The late model ranger "2.0" was  produced as a limited varient of the later 74- mid 90's 2.3 lima built at the ford lima plant. The limas were manufactured from 1974 to 2001 in displacents ranging from 1.3 to 2.5 liter and used in many ford products including pintos, mustang ii , thunderbirds,taurus and small trucks as well.as industrial engines..  None of the parts are interchangeabl e with the early SOHC 2.0 except radiator water and maybe oil. The late model 2.3 lima engines came in many varients including a 2.0 used in the ranger. This engine uses 4 camshaft bearings. The basic hp delivered by the 2.3 was 86.

Not sure about displacement but the 1971 engine was specified to have 9:1  compression and deliver  100 hp and the 72-73 specified 8.1:1 compression and hp reduced to 86.

73-73 pistons sit down in the hole about .080 i think..

Not sure if compression in 71 was due to pistons and if that would affect the displacemen.

To my knowledge all replacment / rebuild parts (pistons, etc) are now only available in the low compression version.

Some folks machine the blocks to increase the compression.

Both the 2.0 EAO ("Pinto") and Lima engines are metric. The Lima/Ranger 2.0 was only in production during roughly the first half of the 1980s.

The SOHC version can make 300hp with a turbo, but never came with such a lofty rating from the factory AFAIK. The Cosworth DOHC version probably did.

The Lima was only in production models until 2000. It was never smaller than 2.0L and it was never used in the Taurus or any other FWD application. The 2.3/2.5 HSC family was and it's a very different pushrod engine.

I was mistaken about the taurus.. i meant taunus.

Actually the "ohc" with 3 cam bearings was manufactured in 5 displacements from.1.3 to 2.0 liter but only one, the 2.0 was used in the american pinto.and capri.

The other varients were used in a variety of european cars from 1970 to 1992.

Some racers use the 1600 cc heads on the 2.0 to get higher compression and the 3 bearing camshafts are interchangeabl e.

In america there were also the 1.6 pushrod "kent"  engines and the 2.3 "lima" 4 cam bearing engines.

There was a limited production 2.0 lima used in the ranger and argentian taurus.

Heres a link to the variations

And a video of a stock 2.0  in a late model sierra with clearly identifiable 2.0 cam cover and modified waste gate that made 304 hp
