5.8 Roller Cam Engine

I just got this engine out of a '94 E250 van. It's casting number starts F0AE. I was under the impression that '94 and later 351W were roller cam engines, but I can't verify this one without voiding it warranty, can anyone point me in the direction of the correct casting number for a factory roller cam 351W? Thanks

I think you might be one year too early? I thought from 95.Could be totally wrong tho!!

'95 up had roller lifter type blocks but interestingly the Lightning engine still used a flat tappet cam. I think Std 5.8 engines may have the roller cam because their hp rating went from 210hp to 235hp and nothing else was changed.

Can't you pull a rocker cover off and look down a pushrod hole without voiding your warranty? Otherwise pull your distributor and check if your have a steel drive gear instead of cast iron.
Yellow paint dab is Steel, Blue is cast iron...of course that assumes you can still see the paint dab.
That number you gave is a 1990 engineering number not a casting number. The roller blocks likely have a F4** or F5** engineering number but I'm just guessing.
