Re: FORD Engine block casting numbers reference info

I copied-pasted all that info into my NOTES on my phone so I can refer to it next time I am laying under an interesting Ford wondering what the engine actually is.

Thanks for posting that article!

Good info, it may make your head spin but if was simple the Cheby guy could figure it out.

Interesting the C5AE-A is used on these three engine blocks.

That has to be a mis-print. There's no way an FE and a small block would have the same casting number.

Re: FORD Engine block casting numbers reference info

So, how much MORE misinformation is in that very comprehensive list?

Or was it for that elusive 289 side oiler block?

Re: FORD Engine block casting numbers reference info

According to Mustangtek the 289 block has the complete casting/engineering number C5AE-6015-A on it and the FE has just C5AE-A. Also, the FE is a 2 bolt main top oiler- not a side oiler nor cross-bolt mains. Lots of confusion there.

This is right most of the time. Some of the blocks cast to be a 406 were cast with the nubs for cross bolts. Some were drilled, some were not….If I remember right. There are blocks out there cast as side oilers and drilled as top oiler. Again, the inconsistency was consistent. The blocks they used for irrigation pumps gets into a different realm of what were they thinking!!!
