is this true? 4V302

Hi,
I went to this site:

http://www.falcongt.com.au/LINKS.html

to try and deceipher the engine numbers and codes for my car. And I read that all XC's regardless of being a 302 or a 351 are fitted with 4V heads. Surely a 4V head on a 302 would be a bit of an overkill. Can anyone enlighten me on this?

Also read in a Holley book that there is no way of identifying a Holley carb by a model number stamped on the carb as there is none. Only a list number and a date. How would you recommend a novice like myself find out what one i have. All I know is that it is bloody big. The guy I bought it off said it was 700+CFM

Any info would be great.
Cheers,
Ray

Sadly its not true! all clevelands from the xc onwards were called 4v as they had 4 barrel carbs and manifolds. All were fitted with 2v heads.

The list number can be looked up on Holley's website. theres a numerical listing that provides all the details of the carb according to its list number

The list number if your having trouble finding it is on the air horn - the metal surround where the choke mount faces forward.

northiam is spot on, all XC's had 2V heads. Check out some other threads about this, but 'loose chat' about 2V and 4V's refers to heads. However when Ford refer to 4V on the later models, they are talking about 4 venturi's not a 4V size head. Pretty ambiguous hey?

Re: is this true? 4V302

Thanks everyone,
I checked the stroke and joy of joys it is 3 and a half inches (ie351) no number 4 on the heads though so 2v it is. Thanks for the info on the 4v meaning carb and manifold. I will go and have a look at the holley website now.

Cheers and thanks again,
Ray
