Help me verify a FE big block

I picked up a Ford big block from a guy who did'nt know what he
had.After weeks of digging and web surfing i still cannot verify 100%
on what i have i think its a 427 FE built in 68.On the block the only
#'s are 55246/52dif and 352-46 On the heads the casting #'s are
C8AEH and the water pump casting #'s are C8AE 8505-A . The bottom of
the block is flat and the intake manifold goes under the vavle covers
it has a alum. holley street dominator intake with a holley carb and
the goose neck is on the intake pointing up.The head #'s match a 427
and i know it is a FE but i cannot verify the block #'s anywhere.Can
anyone help me so i can begin to rebuild it.Thanks John

I think Bill Beyer sent you the link.

If it's a top oiler you can sell it for thousands of $$$. If it's a
sideoiler, you better let me haul it away for you before you have to
pay to get rid of it! LOL
