Newbie that need help identifying engine

hello all, I got my first project the other day. A 1966 F100 with a 429 Cobra Jet, I think. That is what the guy told me i got it from.

So here is the info:

Block number is C9VE-B the Crank number is a 4U also with the number 15 16 on it. The engine has been bored .030 and i think the guy mess up when installing the bearings. The engine was knocking and the guy said oil presure was lost he shut it off and pulled the engine since then it has been sitting in the back of the truck.

We took the engine apart and the only problems that I found beside a being dirty and some rust on parts, was that the bearings on the crank had some groves in them, and the oil pump had an old zip tie that was broken up in it. There was now metal in the oil and the pistons and the wall were smooth ( no ridges on the walls of the block at all).

Anyhow, I looking for help in identifying the engine so that i can buy the right parts. any help would be appreciated

Re: Newbie that need help identifying engine

Thanks for the reply I really appreciate it. I'm wanting to get the parts and stuff to start the rebuid, but the page you gave is describing is a 428 cobrajet.. the guy told me mine is a 429 cobra jet. I'm thinking that the engine i got is a 429 thunder jet. So by using the number i enter early in my original post i'm trying to find out what exactley it is and what year it was made.

Once agian thank you though

Re: Newbie that need help identifying engine

Good morning to all,

I utilized the information provided but i'm still not sure what engine i have. As an educated guess i would say that it is the 429 thunderjet not a CJ.

So I thought that I would list all the number i could find one more time and see if I could get a definate answer. I can order any part until I find out what it is. I new at this so I don't want to get the wrong parts, I need your help.

Block number that i could find
C9VE-B and 0J106520

Head numbers -- DOVE-A

Crank number 4U

Once again I would like to thank everyone in advance for any help you can provide.

John
