Re: Engine no' where is it
Dan, Im sure others will give you more complete info but from what you have posted, 9F02H29803 is the VIN and is broken down as follows
9 = 1969
F = Dearborn (assy plant)
02 = fastback
H = 351 - 2V
290803 = consecutive unit number.
The engine number did NOT match the VIN from the factory. A matching numbers claim in your case would be true if the car still has a 351 - 2V engine, and of course the correct drive train and trim as per your data plate.
IMO the engine number is probably the stamped number you have found at the rear of the block.
I have generally found the engine number for Windsor's on a flat machined area at the rear of the block just behind the intake manifold.
Sorry dont have all the info on the casting numbers but here goes
D2 = 1972
A = Full size Ford
E = Engine division
after this someone else will have to help.
AUIII XR6 Ute
66 Mustang convertible
AUIII XR8 Sedan
