Engine Id

I noticed the other day that my hood is from a 1991...at least it has a 1991 vacuum sticker on it. That made me start thinking that maybe somebody had put a '91 302 in. I doubt it but I'd like to know.


Where are the engine id markings?

Re: Engine Id

Maybe it was in a wreck, and they had to get a new hood? If they got one in 91, maybe it would have a 91 sticker on it? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Re: Engine Id

The serial number to the block is stamped on the deck surface, but you would`nt be able to access it w/o pulling a head or the motor, really hard to see.

The casting numbers are the same , probably (E7TE-EA) for 88 thru 93, so that wont tell you crap.

All you can do is look for any sign that the motors been swapped (unoriginal paint) or by any chance it has one of those decals on a valve cover stating mfr date of 91.

Re: Engine Id

Thx Broncomania.

The reason I'm interested is that I might be changing a head gasket soon and the part # for an '89 head gasket is different from a '91. I imagine that they are very similar and one might work with the other but it's not a job that I want to have to do twice in a weeks time, ya know?

Re: Engine Id

Go to the parts store and look at both parts to see what the difference is. Then figure out if it's significant enough to worry about. The PNs for '86 & '87 F-150 8.8" axleshafts are different, but the only change was the size of the pilot that sticks thru the middle of the rim, which doesn't really matter - maybe the difference in the gaskets is equally unimportant.

Re: Engine Id

Yeah I used to work at auto zone. There should be no problems going in and having them both pulled. Most likely the same.
