I'm wondering what/where the correct casting number for an early 1964 170 cu. in. six would be? And where would the date stamping be (I'm familiar w/ 289s)? I was told by the previous owner that the engine in the March 9, 1964 (!) coupe I've purchased had been replaced...

Any differences between falcon, comet, fairlane 170 six engines (besides carbs for auto/stick)?

If I have to rebuild an engine it might as well be one that was built in early '64! I may have found a 170 cu. in. six out of a falcon built March 3, 1964. I want to make sure it is a 170 (not a 144) and it has a date stamp for early '64.


Thanks in advance

Go to www.fordsix.com
There is a section that will help you
identify the correct engine for your car.

The 144 engines were in the early Falcon's.
With the casting numbers off the block and head
you can find out what you have.

the casting is on the intake manifold and on the block behind the exhaust manifold. i'll check my book to see if there is a way to tell if it's a 144 or 170. i'm not sure there is.
