Where is the engine number on a 57 Bird Y Block?
First letter of the VIN.
Oh...you want a stamped number on the block? Ford didn't do that
From all that I could research, Ford didn't start stamping VIN numbers on engines until about half way through 1967.
Thanks Guys, I thought it was me. I looked all over and NOTHING. Iceman
Castng #'s mean something, but i don't know what..mlmlml
What are you looking to figure out?
Posted using the Full Custom H.A.M.B. App!
Casting #'s could be on the block at the distributor hole for early ones or above the oil filter for later ones. Once you have the info you can go to Mummerts
ford-y-block.com and see what you have. He also lists cylinder head numbers there. The site is a great place for yblock information.
