    Not necesarily,that is the part number when it was in production,the 83 does denote the programme year. The engine number is on the N/S of the block towards the front under the cylinderhead

    id say use as many capri bits as poss, but its a lot of weight and effort for not much power in an escort.

    I agree with popup for the hassle and weight the V6 isnt ideal in an escort, but they do fit see John Betts Restoration to see how to fit one nicely.

    Re: V6 engine numbers

    I've got a V6 in my escort. Easy enough to do. Main points I can think of that gave me traumas were:

    Engine mounts- best to go off the chassis. I tinkered with allsorts just take the plunge and buy a chassis mounting kit.

    Engine positioning- I tried to get mine as far back and down as possible to help the whole weight distribution issue and for pulleys to clear a big electric fan. With the 2.8 having a dizzy you'll have to roll the bulkhead/heater bulge lip. Lowering the motor right down needs a slight inward bulge in the sump. No biggie if your happy welding a little box in.

    Weight- its heavy, no doubt about that! You'll need to seam weld the struts, inner wings etc at the front and use a good straight strut brace or the whole front end pulls apart after a year or so of spirited driving!

    Dont forget hangers for two exhausts.

    Brakes need to be beefed up to stop a heavy motor.

    Any specifics, just ask. This route would allow you the option to later fit a 24v cosworth engine or the 4.0L US V6 as bolt-ins.

    Hope this helps?

    Forgot to justify....
    the bulge inwards in the sump is to clear the steering knuckle.

    Re: V6 engine numbers

    'fraid its in bits at the engine builders and the shell has gone to the spray shop as a 'fit it in round other jobs'. But if theres anything you need just shout up, I'm happy to help if I can. Just another little thought....with the chassis mount kit I had the engine side plates weren't right for the V6 so I got some new ones cut. Not expensive, just thought I should let you know.

    Re: V6 engine numbers

    I have been pricing parts for the fitting

    105.00 for the chassis engine mounts, p&p inc
    70.00 for the remote oil filter, p&p inc
    Exhausts 70.00 x 2
    Then I need a sump and modify it.
