Hi thought this looks like an interesting 2.8; reasonably priced, has anyone driven one of these 3.7 cologne conversions?

Very nice. I wonder if they used the standard crank from the 4.0 litre Cologne that was used in the Explorer & Mustang or if this was a purpose made crank.
Yes I believe they used the 4.0L crank and offset ground the crank with 0.060" oversize bearing to increase the stroke 2mm, from 84mm to 86mm stroke. Bore was 95mm IIRC. 3660cc
