Engine Number
« on: December 02, 2010, 01:06:06 PM »
Hi, i'm a newbie with a new mustang and am trying to find the exact engine i have.
the code i have found on the top of the block says C8ZE-9425-A  K.
I understand the C=1960's and the 8 therefore means 1968. but past that my knowledge is vague.
is this an A code or K code engine denoted by the end letters? thanks very much in advance

Welcome to the forum.
The part number you referenced, C8ZE-9524-A, is for the intake manifold, not the engine. The manifold is a 4 barrel carburetor type used on the 1968 302CID V-8 only. The "K" is most likely a foundry reference that the exact meaning is lost in time. The engine casting number itself is located on the lower right rear of the block above the starter which you will need to remove to see. It should read C8OE-6015-A. There should be a casting date code there also, (year, month, day - examples 7L21, or 8B5) and an engine assembly date on a casting tab near the distributor, the same format as the casting. See the picture. There is a strong possibility that a partial VIN will be stamped on the left rear of the block.

thanks very much, i'll check this out. i did think it may just be the intake part number. duh eh! i hope it is a 302 as thats what i registered it as. makes sense as it has a 4 barrell carb on it and found a few other bits making me think its a 302.
