5.0 motor is it a roller or not

Asked by Jun 18, 2011 at 10:47 PM about the 1983 Mercury Capri

Question type: General

i picked up a 83 rs and was wondering if this may have a roller motor in it?

1 Answer

Roller cams did not come out till 85. It is possible to be roller if it ever had a motor swap. The only true way I know of is pull the intake and look at the lifters. If you have the resouces you might be able to read the numbers on the block.
