Uhm lots of stuff is different, starting out with 1 is for a 2.0 and 1 is for a 2.3. the bolt patter is different also I believe.

Thank you Captain Obvious. I can tell that numbers are different. As I am relatively new to the Pinto engine, I was unsure if some things may be interchangeabl e or not, such as in older small block Chevy's. Thank you for the input anyway.

depends on if your talking about a Lima 2.0 and 2.3 or a early (1970-1974) EAO 3 cam bearing 2.0L the Lima 2.0 and 2.3 parts are interchangable, the early 2.0L and the later 2.3 are completely different engines, really the only things that are the same on the early 2.0 and the later 2.0 and 2.3 lima's are the lower 4 bell housing bolts..

Thanks. This is the part I found. Don't know how common they are, but if it would have worked on my 2300, I thought it was a pretty slick piece.

Very cool piece! it's a UK piece for a RS, prob came off a 1800cc but will fit our early EAO 2000cc 2.0L engines, I think this manifold would work great on a stock or mild 2.0L, the US stock cast manifold flows terible,

Nice find!
