You're missing a letter prefix...

C5AE, for example.

The 'C' denotes 1960's production, 'D' is 70's, 'E' is 80's, etc.

The second number (C5...AE) is 1965, the specific year. Get it?

I Cleaned the heads up today and the only numbers on them are on the top underneath where the valve covers go beside the studs. It just says 5AE8 and the other is the same way with 5AE15 I thought that was strange. If anyone has any info please reply!

The casting numbers will be on the underside, on an intake port

OK, I finally looked on the bottom and found out they are C5AE-B heads. Is there anything special about them? thanks

What all have you done to your heads? what type of springs and studs do you have?
