Hi , have a question that would seem very easy to find out , but nobody is giving me a definite answer and i have also done some major searching on this .
I am buy a 89 mustang 5.0 lx .
I need to know exactly where the enineering numbers are , the casting numbers , the casting date number and partial vin numbers are located .
I have a number on the block by the starter that say 34 , and below it it says E7TE , and below that is two small numbers or letters i cant make out .
I have also found the partial vin number , which is locate at the back of the engine on top , that is KF250039 .
I CAN NOT find the engine block casting number , which should be a row of numbers like E9ZE - 6015 - _ _ . (or something like that )
I CAN NOT find the casing date number which should be a four digit number , like 5D24 (or something like that )
I CAN NOT find the second partial vin number . I was told there are two partial vin numbers on every 302 block . I have found the one on the back top of block . Where is the other one located ?
I really need to know this because the seller is selling this as a match number mustang and i am only going to buy it if the engine numbers match directly to the car .
Please , will someone with experience and with a definite answer please reply and tell me . Or maybe post pictures of exactly where they are on the block . This is very important that i find all these numbers .
Thanks for any help that can that be given to me ,
David T. (P40E)
