Question Decoding a ford industrial 200 inline 6

Trying to decode the engine tag underneath the coil. pretty sure its a 1968 block.

Tag reads Seriel # 1566-C1KR, Type # 200GP-6001-CF, Options # S0-2861B

Casting on right side reads 12, C8DE, 6015-B

Was told it came out of an airport baggage loading car. Its a great running engine just trying to get some info.

Decoding Ford parts can be interesting to say the least. It's very possible that your engine could have been used in an airport baggage loading car, as well as many other platforms out there. Here's the breakdown starting with the engineering number on the block itself (C8DE-6015-B):

C8 = 1968
D = Falcon (model the part was developed & billed for)
E = Engine (design engineering office that created the part)

6015 = This is the actual part number for the block

B = This means it was the second block designed for a 1968 Falcon; not necessarily a revision, but the second block designed for that model line (as an example only, the first could have been a 170 CID or a 260 CID).


Now, all that being said, this does not mean the engine came out of a '68 Falcon. It just means the part was designed for a '68 Falcon, or more accurately that the design engineering office that was responsible for engines designed the block for the Falcon line, and billed it to that model line. Likewise, it was possible that engines designed for a different model line theoretically could have been used in a Falcon - it's fiscally sound for a manufacturer to use any part in as many different vehicle configurations as possible. If that wasn't confusing enough, here's a curve-ball for you - a part could have been designed for a different year than it was actually used in. In some cases, a 1968 part could have been used in 1967, or may not have been used until 1969. I could go a little deeper into the black-hole of Ford engineering numbers if you want, but didn't want this thread to be too long...let me know if you need me to clarify any of this or have any other questions...
