    I know it a Ford from 1960s, some people tell me it a 292 some say its a FE. I have no idea and information on the markings are pretty scare.
    I have a 1980s 351W HO block and this block to build out in my 1960 Ford F100. Would hate to get rid of this engine and fine out later it a 427 or 428?
    Thanks

    Definitely an FE.

    The casting # indicates an earlier block with only 2 motor mount bolt holes.

    Stupid fucking jokes to an honest question. Go to twiiter or some other jackass site
     
  11. C1 on the block=1961
    C4 on the crank =1964

    Its a mutt F.E. that someone has been into.

    Check the pistons for being oversized and measure the stroke to see what it is now.

    FE stands for Ford-Edsel, as the engines were originally slated for use in those two lines.
     
  20. FE as said before, C1AE = 61 car block (that's the casting year not year of manufacture for the car) looks like a 352 crank, a 390 crank has beviled counter weights. I wouldn't call it scrap but it don't look like much, and I like Fords.
     
  21. In this case the "E" designates ENGINE AND FOUNDRY.

    Its the fourth character in the numbering system that Ford used

    The fourth character represents DESIGN RESPONSIBILITY.

    Other design responsibilitys were A = Ford Division PEO, B = Metal Stamping Division, E = Engine and Foundry Division Product Engineering Office, Z = Ford Parts and Service Office, etc ... .

    Thanks to Dennis K for the education :)

    Sometimes we don't have the answers to every question. Everyone is not on all of the time to see the questions when they are first posted. Stupid answers to good questions brings the request back to the top and exposes it to more eyes and possible answers. Besides, we all should appreciate a little humor once in a while. We are fortunate to have the world renoun Henway historian here on the HAMB.

    From the Ultimate American V-8 Engine Date Book, page 108:

    "The F stands for Ford and the E for Edsel, as the engines were originally slated for use in Ford and Edsel cars...The first FE series engines were 332 and 352 cid on 1958 Ford and Thunderbird. There was also the oddball 361, which was used only on 1958-1959 Edsel cars and later on some light trucks, though with the '360' designation."
     
  25. The Henway thing is trad on the HAMB...

    So, I guess that considering these were also installed in Mercury vehicles, a feller would have a FEM engine? I heard the FEM engines had limp wrist pins, but PINK rods.

    Gotta agree with this. How many of us go back to see all of the threads since we last visited?

    In 1958, when the engine series was introduced, it was not available in Mercury. 1961 was first year the FE was available in a Mercury (352), only after Edsel ceased production. Prior to '61, Mercury had only MEL or y-blocks.

    The MEL series (Mercury, Edsel, Lincoln)was also introduced in 1958, but Ford quit using them in Mercury at the end of the 1960 model year (and of course, Edsel quit using them at the beginning of the '60 model year!) Only the Lincoln MEL continued past '60, through the '68 model year.

    Interesting that Ford introduced two new engine lines the same year they introduced Edsel, and the E in Edsel was part of the designation of both lines, indicating to me that they certainly had high hopes that the Edsel would be a great success.
