I just purchased a ford block for a BUCK. I,m trying to ID this thing #s on theblock are C4ae which I beleive to be a 64-289. But on the front of the block on drivers side it says 352 stamped on it. On the heads, they are rail type and stamped D430 Which makes no scense to me.


on a plate I found on the valve cover says,


352 65 5

4J N 790 J


It has a 4BBL Autotrans and headers the intake Man.#s 4m29 .

Any help here would be App. For a buck I couldn,t resist But what is it ?? and is it worth working on for a 70 Mach It looked like my 351W when I bought it. Now I don,t know ????

It's an FE. Either a 390 or more likely a 352.
Not even in the windsor family.
Still, a good deal for a $1.

You've got to be kiddin', right?!

The FE engines (in cars/trucks) followed the Y-blocks (292 & 312,in the 50/60s) & were made from about early 1960's and ended in late 1970's. There were only about a GAZILLION of these engines produced and included the 352, 390 and the 428. Of course the FE family also included the awesome 427s, center oilers & side oilers; but it's doubtful yours is a 427. I'd guess the remaining FEs in the world would be 390s, as they were installed in trucks thru the late 70's.

There should be a ID # cast into one of the crank throws.... like a 3M or 2U. Roll it over, pull the oil pan and turn over the crank & see if you can find this casting # and it should help determine what you have.

GOOD LUCK!
Ryan
