Could anybody tell me if a 4.6L DOHC from a '95 Lincoln
Mk VIII will fit in a '86 CV? If not, why?
Thanks, Tim R


I'm gonna buy me a Mercury and cruise it up 'n down the road!

Probably not, the Mark VIII engine is wider than the 5.0 that was in it. It is also taller. The 4.6 SOHC is wider than a 460 cu.in.!!!!!!! The 4.6 DOHC like the Mark has is even wider than that! You MAY squeeze it in there, but I doubt it could happen.

confused engine swap

Hey Black 97 GT, I was hoping that since the newer CV's
come with a 4.6 that it would work. Do you know what the difference is? Is the car wider? It looks wider and lower but I haven't measured it yet. Thanks, Tim.

It should fit in the newer CV's. The Marauder will have the 4.6 4-valve next year with the same body as the car has now. The 92 and up CV's are wider and lower and a tad longer then the 79-91's. I don't know the exact dimensions offhand, but the car is bigger yes. Glad I can help!

Someone on CVN in the tech section claims that a DOHC 4.6 will fit easily in a '92-'97 Crown Vic. There was some discussion about a new model being a bit more difficult to squeeze it into. I don't know what makes the '92-'97 so much easier, but according to this guy's posts (Crazy Chris DOHC, or something like that), it's no problem.
