so are these heads worth any thing or are they boat anchors.being 1969 this should be good yes? how do you know what the numbers are is there a website for this stuff.did you get your mtr fixed ?.
i pulled the heads off my 460 on friday to have a look and see if it had what i was told when i bought the unfinished project. i was happy to see it was all true.i am going to keep this engine complete as it is to good to waste. i got the complete mtr std bore listed above to start with off ebay for 1050.00 delivered to my door which i think is reasonable.

Re: bigblock 460 castings

______ _cast-no____valve size_______port size
429-460-----C8VE--- 2.09" intake---- 2.18x1.87
-------------C9VE----1.65" exhaust--- 1.99x1.30
-------------DOVE
-------------D3AE-A2A

429----------D0OE---2.19" intake---- 2.51x2.11
cobrajet--------------1.73" exhaust--- 2.25x1.30

429-460-----D2OE---2.19" intake---- 2.20x1.93
Police--------D3AE-FA--1.73" exhaust--- 2.06x1.31
interceptor

decipher Ford part numbers, such as D1ZZ-6675-C, for example:

The first two digits indicate year. The letter is the decade;
A = '40s
B = '50s
C = '60s
D = '70s
E = '80s
F = '90s
G = '00s

The third digit designates body line;
A = Ford full size
D = Falcon
E = Escort
F = Pinto, Maverick, Falcon
G = Early Comets, Montego, Cyclone
H = Medium/Heavy Duty Truck
K = Edsel
L = Lincoln Mark VII
M = Mercury
O = Fairlane
R = Capri
S = Thunderbird
T = Pick-up Truck or Bronco
U = Econoline Van
V = Lincoln
W = Cougar
Z = Mustang
{there are actually many more}

The fourth position signifies Engineering group;
A = Chassis
B = Body
E = Engine

If it's a Service Replacement part;
Z = Ford Division
Y = Lincoln-Mercury
X = Original Muscle Parts program
M = Ford Motorsport, SVO, FFRP or ford Mexico

The center number, four or more numbers or letters, is the part number.

The A at the end of the number indicates that the part is the first version. If it was revised once, it would be B. If it was revised again, it would be C, and so on. When they run out of letters, it becomes AA, AB, and so on.

So if we decode this number, D1ZZ-6675-C, we come up with the
following:

D1 = 1971 model year.
Z = Mustang.
Z = Ford Division Service Replacement part.
6675 = the group number for oil pans.
C = The third version of this part.
