Also what is the difference between engine numbers :

JH63UP13026K
JH66UP13026K

Just noticed that the actual engine number is the second one but it was last regd as the first.

Thanks

JG66xxxxx is the start of an original GT Coupe numbers.

One car with 3 different numbers sound fishy...

There's no substitute for cubic inches!

You don;t have the original engine in it. No big suprise. I guess the difference between the 3 and 6 might be a typo. Also seems like you could have a GT engine, if the 66 is correct and my brain remembers correctly.

HAHAHA bugga it its not a gt engine!!

Turns out its jg63. Had some dirt and looked like 66. I read it in the dark with a torch.
So can you tell from the engine number at all if it is a 302 or 351? Or do they just take your word for it?

Thanks guys.

Aaron

you cant tell from an engine number for certain if it's a 351 or 302. The best you could hope for is that if it's a LTD or Landau (or GT for that matter!!) engine number it was originally a 351. It's been so long who really knows thats going to be in there

Also how do i tell 2v and 4v heads? I cant see anything on them

With 4v heads the intake ports at the manifold/head intake face, just about touch the bottom side of the rocker gaskets where the 2v has about a 15mm gap..No numbers in the top corners near the rocker cover gaskets are prob 2v.
