Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Windsor engine is a 90-degree small-block V8 from ? Ford Motor Company. It was introduced in 1962, replacing the old ? Ford Y-block engine. Though not all of the engines in this family were produced at the Windsor, Ontario engine plant (all Ford small blocks came from Cleveland, Ohio until 1966), the name stuck. The mid-sized ? 335 Cleveland V8, introduced in 1970, was to replace the larger Windsors, but this design ended up outliving its replacement. In 1991, the Windsor engine began to be phased out and replaced with Ford's new 4.6 L (~281 cu in) modular V8 engine. In 1996, Ford replaced the 5.0(302) pushrod Windsor V8 with the Modular 4.6 in the Mustang. Its use in production vehicles continued until 1997 in the F-150 and until 2001 in the Explorer. From the mid-70s through the 90s, the Windsor engine was marinized and used in many inboard boats. As of 2008, the Windsor engines including the 5.8 L (351 cu in) and 5.0 (cu in. 302) are still being manufactured; they are available as complete crate motors from Ford Racing and Performance Parts.Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.
