Re: Ford engine number identification
There should be an engine tag under the coil bracket, but being the age of the car its probably lost. Stamped numbers or codes are usually stamped on machined bosses on the block. There are four bosses, two on each side just below the deck surface. (top of the engine block).The date code is alphanumeric....letters and numbers....usually on the left side of the block on the front or rear boss. The date may also be on the two right bosses or any other machined surface on the block.
