Block Differences: pre 12/99 and post 12/99
I'm trying to get a good list of what the differences are in the SOHC Cylinder Block between pre 12/99 and post 12/99 up to and including 2004.
I've done some searching on this and recall reading in the past that a difference is in the accessory mounting brackets but haven't confirmed this.
I've looked at Ford Direct and see that the P.S. Pump is different for this time frame - alternator isn't. Air Conditioner looks to be the same for 2000 - 2003.
Anyone have first hand experience/knowledge on the differences especially when swapping in an SOHC engine? Mounting brackets, sensors, holes, hardware, wiring, hoses ect. ...... TIA
