    Yeah...everything of any help in identifying it for you. You need to dig deeper and get more information.

    Could be 1951 going by basic Ford nomenclature, like C4...1964.

    The 8BA changed to 0BA for '50 and 1BA for '51? So perhaps the fellow is talking about one of those...

    We need photos of the block. Does it have the cast in bell housing?

    81 - A......1938 ish the first 24 stud.
    An 8 can be mistaken for a B
