 Camshaft - WOI Encyclopedia Italia
Valve timing gears on a Ford Taunus V4 engine — the small gear is on the crankshaft, the larger gear is on the camshaft.
In a two-stroke engine that uses a camshaft, each valve is opened once for each rotation of the crankshaft; in these engines, the camshaft rotates at the same rate as the crankshaft.
Some engines use one camshaft each for the intake and exhaust valves; such an arrangement is known as a double or dual overhead cam (DOHC), thus, a V engine may have 4 camshafts.

 Reference.com/Encyclopedia/Ford Cologne V6 engine
The Cologne V6 was made to be very compatible in installation with the Taunus V4, having the same transmission bolt pattern, the same engine mounts, and in many versions, a cylinder head featuring "siamesed" exhaust passages, which reduced the three exhaust outlets down to two on each side.
The 2.6 L Cologne engine was available in two forms: a regular 2550 cc version (used in the Capri 2600 GT) and a special high-performance 2637 cc fuel injected version (used in the Capri RS 2600).
Three timing chains are used, one from the crank to the jackshaft, one in the front of the engine to drive the cam for the left bank, and one on the back of the engine to drive the cam for the right bank.

 Ford (Germany)
From 1925 Ford assembled cars at Berlin-Plötzensee and in 1931 opened a new factory at Cologne, where the first cars were made to American designs.
The post-war 1172cc Taunus, nicknamed "Bückel" (hunchback), was a developed version of the 1939 Taunus, which appeared in 1948, to be superseded in 1952 by an improved and modernized Taunus 12M, developing 38 bhp at 4250 rpm.
The first Capris of 1969 had in-line and V-engines of 1288 to 2637cc, heralding a move towards total European rationalization (apart from some engine variations) of the Ford range: it was superseded by the improved Capri II in 1974, followed in turn by the four-headlamp Capri III in 1977.

Since the engine mounts and gearbox connections are identical between the Ford Cologne V6 engine and the V4, some vintage V4 Saab 96s were modified to take a V6, for rally racing, although this dramatically changed the weight distribution and steering characteristics.

Ford Britain established a structures department at its Dagenham plant and, by employing stress techniques previously only used in the aircraft industry, produced a bodyshell that was lighter and stronger than anything that had gone before.
Ford's bold decision to build the Fiesta, taken during the trauma of the mid 1970s oil shock, confounded some of the most deeply entrenched beliefs of the motor industry  -'mini car, mini profits' and 'you can't build a new model in a new factory in a new country'.

 Balance shaft information - Search.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
In piston engine engineering, a balance shaft is an eccentric weighted shaft which offsets the vibrations of unbalanced engines.
The problem increases with larger engine displacement, since the only ways to achieve larger displacement are with a longer piston stroke, increasing the difference in acceleration, or by a larger bore, increasing the mass of the pistons; either way, the magnitude of the inertial vibration increases.
While an optimally designed V6 engine would have a 60 degree angle between the two banks of cylinders, many current V6 engines are derived from older V8 engines, which have a 90 degree angle between the two banks of cylinders.

When Saab started using the Ford Taunus V4 engine in their other models, they also wanted to use it in the Sonett II.
The engine produced 65 hp (48 kW) and the Sonett II V4 made 0 to 100 km/h in 12.5 s and had a top speed of 160 km/h.
The Sonett III had the type indicator '97' in the chassis number and used the same Ford V4 engine as before, with 1500 cc in 1970 and 1971, and a 1700 cc in later versions.

 Engine weights
I was searching for the weight of a 302 a while ago and i stumbled on something (which of course i can't find anymore) that said the ford 2.8 was lighter than the 2.3.
It would make sense to me the smaller engine would be lighter than the bigger on, generally speaking.
Ford couldn't have the lighter pinto outrunning the v8 mustang II and getting better mileage to boot, so they mated it to the c3 slushbox slip-o-matic.

 VVT page   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
VVT allows the lift or duration or timing (some or all) of the intake or exhaust valves (or both) to be changed while the engine is in operation.
The profile, or position of the cam lobes on the shaft, is optimized for a certain engine rpm, and this tradeoff normally limits low-end torque or high-end power.
Pleased with the results, engineers took the knowledge and applied it to the B16A engine, fitted to the 1989 EF9 Honda Civic.
