Default pulley continued

spoke to classic auto air, they need to know what year the motor is. Told me to find the serial number on the block. Where would that number be and with the number, how to tell what year the motor was made? Thanks

Ford didn't put serial numbers on their motors. In front of the carburetor on the intake is a part number. It could be C1AE or something similar. Unless they reused the original intake that should give you some idea of the year.

Ed, the COAE9425B tells you that the C0=1960. The 9425 tells you that it is the intake manifold and the B is the revision number. As I recall, the OD11 is the manufacture date. Someone like Dave, or jopizz can break it down better for you.

Intake manifold must be original if date is 1960. I was told the engine was from a mid 60's 390. If that is true, sounds like there is a mix of parts from 2 engines.

Check and see if you have the engine identification tag. It should be attached to the driver side at the front where the coil originally mounted. I imagine you had to remove the coil to mount the compressor.

If you can't find the tag look at the heads between the middle spark plugs. There should be a part number prefix there.

Unfortunately, no tag at that location. Don't know if it was there prior to A/C install. Will ask mechanic, possible he removed it. Thanks
