Opinion on Casting Number

I have a 302 block:

C8AM 6015-B

I am getting some differing opinions about it. Some are saying it's a "mexican block" and others are saying its a motorsport (SVO) version. I don't really know if there is any significance, except that when I measured the deck height it is taller than what it should be i.e it is 8.246", not 8.206".

The date suffix is obscure, but looks like 6-HO


Any takers?

Re: Opinion on Casting Number

A quick Google search found this discussion on a ford truck site that may help.

http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/ar...pic/49772.html

do you see the words "Hecho en Mexico" cast anywhere on the block, the lifter valley perhaps?

According to the Casting Number it's a 1968 Ford Special Vehicle Operations Block.

Re: Opinion on Casting Number

Did SVO exist back in 1968?
IF there is two large boses protruding from casting, one on each side at the front then its a mexican

I am not reffering to the Australian SVO Company that modified Cars such as the 'EA Ford Falcon SVO'.You are correct about the casting lugs at the front of the Mexican Block.Mexican blocks I believe also had thicker Main Bearing Caps.Check this Link out for Ford Part Number information... http://www.falcongt.com.au/part%20number%20codes.htm
