I need to know what exact year my E7TE ford block was built
I need to know what exact year my E7TE ford block was built, and what are the casting differences between the 82-90 302 crank, compared to the 91 and up crank.
I want to use the 82-90 crank, in a E7TE block of unknown year, need to know compatibly.
The 90 block has 0C13 cast on it, the unknown block has 9L14 on it.
I know that :
0C13 = March 13, 1990 (1990 model year)
9L14 = November 14, 1989 (1990 model year)
from the #'s on the block, but when ordering the crank, they told me there was a difference in casting from the '82 to '90 crank, and the '91 and up crank.
Do you know what the difference would be? cause they were very specific that I got the crank to fit the '90.
You said there was no difference, but mad dog racing stated they were different castings.
