Default swapping a 90 motor into my 93 (both 244). What will I need to retain from the 93?

I know about the ac compressor and powersteering stufff, but are there any sensors that I need to retain from the 93 motor? I am pulling it to build it and want to be able to drive it while I prepare the squirter mtor (+T). Please let me know.

Gary

If both engines came from cars with the LH2.4 injection. Then you won't need to swap around anything but the stuff you already mentioned. The power steering and a/c is really all I can think of that is different.

When you pull the engine you can remove the a/c and power steering and just pull it off to the side. Then bolt that stuff onto the replacement engine after you put it in.

Yes unless it's LH3.1. If you have the air mass meter from both engines check the last three digits of the bosch part number on it. If they both end with 016 then both engines are LH2.4

'91-'93 manual-transmission 240s were LH3.1. No automatic 240 ever used LH3.1.

Thanks for the info, Robustus. I've been curious about which cars had the 3.1

Not true! You have to check the vehicle. My 1993 wagon is manual trans with LH2.4. It's a classic edition. Although it is true that LH3.1 was only used on manual trans cars. It's just not true that all late model manual cars are LH3.1.

He's pulling it to build it up, then, putting it back in.

As Dave said above, some late 240s with manual transmissions have LH 3.1. The 1991 M47 equipped 240 I am parting out right now is LH 2.4.

Hi, Yellow 95
The 93 motor was the first year(i think) that round tooth pulleys were used for the timing belt, so if you're doing a belt while the motor is out make sure you get the correct one or you'll have to swap pulleys.
