It definately is an FE and I think it may be a 332.

A 332 has solid lifters so it's pretty easy to tell.

i would guess you have a 352 with hydraulic lifters that simply was painted with the available paint.

This is a 352 showing the location of some of the engine numbers you are looking for. (intake - upper yellow circle) and (casting number - lower yellow circle)



This is the intake number on this particular engine (right in front of where the carburetor sits) 5G8 - not sure on this - maybe just the foundry number and below that is C5AE9425C - C5 - tells you it is from a 1965 model.


The lower yellow circle shows the block casting is a 352
32 - unknown to me
below that is 352 which means it is a 352/390/428? block


On the side of the block under where the generator is there is another block casting - the experts will have to tell you what they mean. C6ME (upside down)


And these are the numbers on the heads. They are located in the middle between the 2 middle spark plugs.
C4AE-G meaning they came off a 1964 model car.


It's common when building an engine from spare parts that the numbers won't match as is shown in this engine. Everything works together just not how it came from the factory.

And after a little cleaning up it can look like this.........

Good reply, Eric.

C1AE 9425-B is the recommended replacement for Squarebird FE engines. That means this part came out in 1961, so original 4-bbl Squarebird manifolds probably say, B8AE 9425-B.

9424 or 9425 means it's an intake manifold. These numbers will be on every intake casting regardless # of cylinders.

'57 T-bird Y-blocks had ECZ 9425-B manifolds. The 'B' is reserved for 4-bbl's. '57 Dual quad manifolds were ECZ 9425-C. After Ford got into racing, there were 50 different FE manifolds and heads.

Ill have to look for the engine number tomorrow but the heads are stamped 5752143 and the intake is 5751086. From what ive found on the "net" it is around 58 or 59 just dont know size. No 352 stamped on the block and 2 barrel carb???? Must have been from another 58 ford car or truck

Those are period correct. FORD was using a numerical seven character PN System that was replaced in 1960.

I wish I had that PN System details.

If the block does not have the 352 Casting I.D., it may be a later year casting. Look for the Block Casting I.D. Nos. location shown above.

Some parts may include a date code indicating when the part was manufactured. Date codes are located in various areas, and are normally comprised of 3 or 4 digits.

TYPICAL DATE CODE:

9A21

9 = Year (1949/1959/1969/1979/1989/1999) Actual year can be determined by checking the part number of that component for the decade code.

A = January

21 = 21st Day of the month

We'll say the part number prefix indicates the decade is the 1960's, so 9A21 is decoded as being built on January 21, 1969. (Yes, we checked...it was a work day.) And sometimes, the date code can be stamped in the wrong order, as in the example shown above. We're going to guess that the "79C" code should have really been "9C7" which would designate a casting date of March 7, 1959, which would be a correct date for that particular part.
MONTH DATE CODES:

A - January
B - February
C - March
D - April
E - May
F - June
G - July
H - August
I - (not used)
J - September
K - October
L - November
M - December

Yes, early FE.

The casting year/model is 1966.
