Ford pickup received 1.9-liter VW dieselApril 4, 2020
In the state of Indiana, USA, they put up for sale the Ford F-100 of the 1970 production year, which has a very non-standard replacement of the power unit and gearbox.
In the US state, it seems that they decided to follow the current trend, which provides for a reduction in fuel consumption and the volume of harmful emissions, while it is very strange, for example, a Ford pickup truck received a 1.9-liter VW diesel engine.
The release of this “four” was carried out from 1991 to 2010 and it was installed on such German brand cars as Polo, Golf and Passat. This power unit produced from 68 to 110 hp and was considered indestructible, for this reason an American named Geri chose it to replace the old gasoline in-line “six” of its own model F-100.
The German power plant operates in conjunction with the Japanese 5-speed manual transmission from Toyota. According to the owner of the pickup truck, the car came out very reliable – for 6 years of ownership only the tensioner belts and relays broke. Currently, mileage is approximately 233,000 km. The pickup is able to accelerate to 130 km / h and consumes about 7.1 liters of diesel per 100 km of track.
To compensate for the weight loss of the old gasoline V6, the front springs were lowered by 10 cm, the driveshaft was made to order. He never possessed the power steering, all brakes are drum. The only problem with this F-100 is its body, or rather, its condition. It was painted 6 years ago, but the owner honestly says that from that moment the body was covered with corrosion. A pickup truck with a German powerplant and Japanese gearbox can be bought for $ 9,000 on the eBay website
