Well I come across a good deal on a 97 FS from a 626, I got it for $100I think Brian wanted to steer clear of injection, although the B2200 would go better with injection. not to mention better economy, easier starting...yada yada..
3 valves/cylinder probably is better, but since the valves are smaller does that make a difference?yep that will work for you, but 3 valves per cylinder is better than 2. see if you can find a company that will just import the b2200 F2 head, May be?
Ok after quite a bit of work and tear down of the FS engine, I have realized that the oilpan will not work on the B2200 truck. The sump is too low and hits the steering components.
Also after tear down of the F2 that i have I notice that the rods and crank are alot tougher looking than the FS, plus the fact that the bore and stroke are quite a bit larger on the F2.
will the kia head fit on the 89 F2 that i have?I say drop in a kia engine with a side draft carb fitted where the TB is and make an adaptor to run the 12V dissy off one of the cams in front.
