mad 429 identification?

hello all, hope someone can help me!
i am trying to identify what my motor came out of so i can order the right parts.everone i talk to at the auto parts stores say that they can't identify or get the right parts because it could be a "special" or a "thunderjet".
here's what i know so far
C9VE-B on the block and C9VE-A on the heads. it also has 9A16 stamped on it.
intake has C8SE-9425-B stamped on it

i really want to rebuild this motor, it will be turning the 44" swampers on my 81 Bronco!
thanks

You have a very early 1969 base model engine. If it is a 429, then it is as much a Thunder Jet (not Cobra Jet) as any other 4-barrel 429, and is factory rated at 360HP. Might be a 460, too, but the only way to tell the difference is by unbuttoning the pan...unless the tag is still on the intake manifold.

1969 429 and 460 longblocks are made of 100% identical interchangable componenetry except for the crankshaft and pistons (which are exclusive to each of the engines). Even the bore is the same on both engines.

I would type in Ford Racing in your search engine and go from there. The catalogue has plenty of parts and info and not everything is race specific.

Re: 429 identification?

C9VE-B should be a 1970 429CJ engine block, C9VE-A should be a 1970-71 429CJ, SCJ and Police cylinderhead. Sounds like a nice engine!
I have this info from Tom Monroe's "How to rebuild Ford V8 engines" published by HPBooks, ISBN 0-89586-036-8. It's pretty old so I don't know if it's still published.
