Ford Fell in Love with the 4.0 Litre SOHC V6 Engine in the Early 1990s
Trying to keep track of all of the Ford engines can keep anyone busy for hours and in some cases days if one really wants an accurate history of how Ford has dominated the industry from a technical standpoint. Some car experts will argue that point since other major brands have played a more dominate part in overall car sales over the last thirty years. Ford SOHC 4.0 l Engines for Sale Used are a very good value for those on a budget.
GM has been a giant, but few people can dispute what Ford’s 4.0 liter SOHC engine has brought to the mechanical side of the business. The 4.0 liter engine was a major player in early Explorer success and the Ranger made a major impact on the truck market with a 4.0 SOHC engine under the hood. Those two vehicles are responsible for hefty sales dollars for Ford. But, when the 2005 Mustang was introduced with a 4.0 liter SOHC engine as its power source the muscle mavens went into exaggerated state of euphoria.
The single overhead camshaft design was not new back in the early 1990s. That engine was used in a 4-cylinder, 8 valve 1960s 2 door saloon car that had a rear mounted alloy engine. The engine design was based on Coventry Climax FWMA race engines. The inlet manifolds and exhaust were on the same side of the engine block, which meant excellent access to the spark plugs.
In the early 1980s several foreign cars used a SOHC parallel valve configuration; there were 2-valves for each cylinder. VW used bucket tappets that had shims for valve lash adjustments, and Toyota used hydraulic tappets.
The 4.0 Litre SOHC Has Come a Long Way Since the 1980s

Nonetheless, the Mustang and the 4.0 litre SOHC Ford engine still hold the firm position of number one for performance in the eyes of car lovers around the world.
