Re: need intake & head specs

Is the car in/from Canada? The CC5AE-9425-C intake is a Canadian part number. Both heads and intake are lowrisers. Heads have std 2.02/1.55 valves with 72-76 cc chambers. I'd lean towards the latter of 76cc's. Block casting numbers really don't have any meaning. Most are generic and can be found on different bore blocks. Being the car is a Marauder I'd say you have a 390. Easy to measure the stroke and see. 352 has a 3.50 stroke and the 390 a 3.78. Short of dropping the pan and looking for the crank numbers it's the easy way to tell. Remove a plug and put the engine on TDC. Use a length of wood dowel (about 6-8") and stick the dowel in the spark plug hole and mark it (noting a common edge as a guide). Then turn over by hand to BDC insert the dowel and mark again. Measure the distance between and that's your stroke. 3.50 or 3 1/2" is a 352 stroke and 3.78 or roughly 3 3/4" is a 390. Also the 352 has a 4.00 bore and the 390 a 4.05 bore. That you'd need to remove the head to measure the cyl bore to be exact. I'd think if your stroke measures 3.78 you have a 390 there.

Thanks! yes it is a Canadian car, and it is a 352. The person that owned it before us took out the 390 and put in a 352 "the 390 gave up the ghost" we are getting a 390 of my dads buddy to put back in. the same buddy has a holley tri-power setup we might be getting also. we live here in newfoundland and there are only 2 of these cars here and we got one.

Re: need intake & head specs

Here is some info for you, In 1965 Ford had a 427 and a 390 that had a C5AE-A casting number, the 390 had a 4.05" deck size, and the 427 had a 4.23" deck size they both were a HYD. lifter block.
"FE" head identifiacation is straightforward, A C4AE-A or "C4AE-G" is a 1964 / 65, 352/390 "Low Riser". One more thing you need to know in 1965 there was also a C4AE and C4AE-F head that was a 427 "High Riser". These heads do not interchange well with other "FE" displacements due to valve to block interference.
With this said you need to look at the head again, if there's a letter F behind the head bolt then it is a 427, The 352 / 390 had the letter after like show'n above.
I hope you find this information helpful if you plan on playing around with the "FE" engines it wouldn't hurt to buy a copy of High Performance Ford 221 cid to 460 cid by George Reid,

Re: need intake & head specs

Troyboy....65 427 was most certainly a solid lifter block. The hyd version of the 427 was not released until 1968. There are many external differences between a sideoiler and std FE block that are very easy to spot. And the highriser heads came out in 63 and a updated version in 64. Not 65. 65 was the first year for the 427 medium riser heads.
