Question 1986 2.0 or 2.3 or 2.5?

I have an 86 ranger and im trying to figure out what engine it has. when i looked up the VIN#1FTBR10C9GUA81503 it tells me a 2.5 but i also read that they didnt put 2.5 in 86. I also have the numbers off the timing cover ZK985AA but cant find any info on those numbers. Thanks for any info. Chuck

Based on my LIMITED knowledge of these trucks: my guess is a 2.3L.


Do some searching on here, tons of info: the 2.3 and the 2.0 are the same just the 2.3 is a bigger bore/ pistons/rings. Not sure about the 2.5?
The only way I knew my '83 was a 2.3L was once I had a piston in my hand (wasn't hard, half the piston was in the oil pan!)

Being it is a 25 year old ranger, it could be on engine number 5 and tranny number 6 by this time. If the VIN says it should have a 2.5 then that truck has been monkeyed with.
