I have a f3l912 engine with about 800 hours on it in a wrecked air compressor it is I think 53? hp. with a turbo, do you think it would run a ranger pu I have a 3-53n in one now and it is ok 105 hp but only 77 to the wheels.
The F3L912 standard engine was 54 HP max. Not sure whether that included the turbo model. Here's a BF3L912 turbo engine in a Ford Ranger.
Not sure what the power level was. Back in 1983-1984 Ford put a small Perkins diesel in the Ranger which had 59 HP. In 1985-1986 they change to a Mitsubishi turbo diesel which had 86 HP. The new 2022 Ranger diesel is 247 HP. Sort of makes those early ones look like lawn mower engines.
