The 1983 Ford 300cid 4.9 litre inline 6 had 120 Horsepower at 3200 RPM and 250 foot pounds of torque at 1600 RPM.

The impressive nature of this engine, besides its durabilty, is how low in the RPM range peak HP and, in particular, peak torque are made.

Some argue that the replacement of the 4.9 in 1997 by the 4.6 litre V8 is all good news but in reality the 1997 4.6 didn't reach its peak torque of 265 foot pounds until 4000 RPM! That being said the 4.6 V8 breaths much better and revs much higher which translates to more HP and better fuel economy.

Still the 4.9 is an incredible engine that deserves its place as "the best engine Ford ever produced".

Torque on the Ford 200 c.i. L6 head bolts is 60-65 ft/lbs. Apply torque in a three-step process to acheive the correct final torque (i.e. 45/55/65). The 200 L6 (inline six) engine was used in a variety of Ford cars from 1962 thru 1983 including Falcon, Mustang, and Maverick to name a few.

ANYTHING will fit into a 1983 Caprice Classic. Are you asking if it will bolt up to the tranny?

User Avatar

yes. it has the L28e or L28et. It will fit in any of the Z's. If it's turbo and the other tranny and rear end you have are for a non-turbo then you need the turbo tranny and rear end

Sounds like it's the torque converter to me..............it is connected to the flywheel of the engine and pumps the fluid through the tranny. It may have lost it's effectiveness to pump fluid.
