What does it mean when you see alittle brass on the crank bearings.When I removed the rear main cap I noticed that the bearing had to small brass lines.

Also all the pistons had B747 stamped inside of them.
And the crank had hand writen on it in yellow 351w,why is that there?

All the connecting rods had C90E on them and so did the rear main cap.

The oil pump had HM83 92162

Do these numbers mean anything.I know the C90E tells me it's a 69 right?

The crank was shiny and the cylinder walls were also shinney looking.
Is there any thing I can check for or do while I have the oil pan off?

The engine has been rebuilt once before.
It has a Melling oil pump.
The brass lines are scratches.
The yellow 351 on the crank was for identification purposes.

How do you know it's been rebuilt?
Also the crank bearing had 010 on it.
Are scratches bad or real bad.
Thanks for the info,how about the pistons B747 does that tell you anything?

its been rebuilt because the .010 stamped on your bearings means the crank has been turned down .010". those light scratches in your bearings are normal wear on main and rods depending on the mileage. the brass color you see is not brass either its the copper underlayer in the bearings. the B747 under your pistons is a part number. look on the very top of your pistons and see if its stamped anywhere, like this +.030. if you get a number similar to this it means that this is the oversize of your pistons from the original 4.00" bore. your rods were not necessarily made in 1969, their original design started in 1969 so until ford changed its casting that is the casting number. let us know of your intentions for this motor and maybe we can help you out.

I'm just guessing SCOOP.

The Melling pump is a clue right?

Maybe the marking on the crank, too? They probably just went by casting numbers from the factory, no?

It wasn't in your first post, but the marking on the bearings is a dead giveaway.

Oh yeah, I can't wait to tear into mine. Between me and you SCOOP, we'll probably ask every possible question there is.

I had a teacher that told me once that the only dumb questions are the ones you don't ask.
