A New Range of 4 Cyl In-Line Single O.H.C. Engines by Ford in Europe 710148
This paper describes a new range of 4 cyl, in-line, single OHC engines produced by Ford in Europe, which is available in three displacements of 1.3, 1.6, and 2.0 1. This engine has been developed for high performance output, high-speed operation, and compliance with various exhaust emission regulations. The significant design features highlighted here are the cylinder block, the cylinder head, the valve arrangement, the intake manifolds, and air cleaners with an air intake pre-heat system, all of which are described here. To establish reliability of this new engine, special test runs were made of 300 engines under customer driving conditions in many countries, covering a total of approximately 10 million km.
