CVH engines

The 1.6 litre CVH engine was introduced in September 1991, to replace the 1.6 litre SOHC engine used previously in the Sierra range. The engine is broadly similar to the 1.8 litre (R2A type) CVH engine described below. The main differences are outlined in the following paragraphs.

The centre main bearing is fitted with thrustwashers to control crankshaft endfloat, instead of a flanged bearing shell.
