Yes, your heads are more than likely identified, TOF. Very, very few heads went through without casting numbers, and I suspect that those without them are toward the beginning of production for that particular casting revision.Tired Ole Ford said:...I could not locate the casting # on my heads. I have Tom Monroe book that shows me exactly where to look ie: (visuals) on the ledge between the 3rd and 4th cylinder exhaust. Certainly they are identified???
TOF, ooooh boy. Suddenly we are in an even more gray area....it gets a little confusing around the transitional period from carb to EFI. Now I really am curious what you have for heads.Tired Ole Ford said:True story Paul. Mine is a 1987 F350 4X4. I'll take your word on it about the heads because I'm not about to get into pulling all of that stuff back apart LOL!
October 28, 1978 & Ocotber 29, 1978. D3VE-A2A heads.Hi just read through the thread as i have a same situation. the heads are not stamped externally but i took off the covers and found the date stamps 8k28 on the left head with an upside 35 on the outside and on the right head it was stamped 54 on the outside with a dat code of 8k29 all on a d9te-ab block in my boat. which heads do you believe these to be.
