Re: Engine number help

I think it might be from a ZD fairlane as they had numbers like that and were the USA type clevo's.It should have a 4MA crank but is most likely only 2 bolt mains. .The Australian clevos started in XA and matched the body NO.s starting with JG etc...

Re: Engine number help

I'd say definitely a Yank block. I had an XC with engine number AE1251 (was a 4.9). When I swapped this motor into another car, rego was pretty upset at first, but they then did some research and said that the number is for an American block. Apparently, Ford Australia did import some at some stage during the XC run. I'm pretty sure that all factory blocks with the XY series were also imports until the Australian production lines started. Willing to be corrected of course!
