    FORD 4.2 liter V6 engine----

    two questions for Ford fans on this engine:

    (a) does it use a cast iron or cast aluminum cylinder head?

    (b) Is it part of the "Triton" series of engines?

    thanx..

    The truck motor? It's a purpose-built V6 w/cast heads.

    I had the 1997 F150. I would have remembered if it had aluminum heads.

    Ford has two modular engine programs - Triton and Romeo (trucks and cars, respectively). I don't think that the 4.2L is a Triton w/two cylinders lopped off. It's too big, displacement-wise.

    I still don't know if it's a Triton.

    I live a couple miles from the Ford Romeo engine plant. Maybe I'll pop in and ask!

    If we gringos were stupid enough to start pronouncing it LEET-RAH, we might start spelling it that way and shifting with our left hands.
