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,
