A Flock of Seagulls
I've read references to a light weight Ranger crankshaft on this forumn, and I was curious about the differences between it and the FWD 2.3. Is the Ranger crank lighter only because it lacks the gear to drive the balance shafts; or does it also have fewer counter weights? When the Duratec was first announced, I read that the 2.3 was fully counterweighted, and the 2.0 wasn't. Sounds like the Ranger engine may be an exception. If anyone can clarify; or post pictures, I'd appreciate it.
