For rangers and bronco II's, the 2.8, 2.9, 3.0, and 4.0L blocks were available. I have a 2.9L in my bronco II. The engines were available with either carb or fuel injection. Most of the parts are the same.

Ford V-6

The 3.0 and 4.0 Engines are completely separate blocks from the 2.9 and smaller. There is now also a new 4.0 in production which does not interchange with the old 4.0.

Oh yaeh! I forgot about the 3.8! Yes when I said that the parts wre the same, I was applying to the 2.8, 2.9 engines. Sorry for any confusion.

parts interchange

As far as I know, the 2.6,2.8, and 2.9 are the only engines of that family.

The old 2.8L/2.9L V6 was built in Cologne, Germany and went in the old European Ford Capris imported in the late 1970s, as well as the Ranger.

The 3.0L which goes in the Ranger today is the Lima, Ohio pushrod engine (nicknamed "Vulcan") -- its been going in the Ranger for quite a few years now. Same engine goes in some Taurii, (thats the plural of Taurus, isn't it) and has gone in some other midsize stuff as well. This engine is not to be confused with the DOHC 3.0L Duratec built in Cleveland. They are nothing alike.

There were 4.0L Cologne V6s as well, SOHC if I recall.

I don't remember ever seeing a 3.8L in a Ranger, but it is a completely different engine too, closer to a 302 SBF with two cylinders sawed off than anything else.
