I'm not absolutely sure, I picked it up from someone else who said he thinks it came out of a dump truck or bus.

If its a ford C8 - 1968 S - Thunderbird E- Engine. I'm guessing 429 or 460.

I think the middle code is wrong for a block, without looking it should be something like 6015, not sure what a 5059 is. The other posts were correct, it is originally cast for a T-bird(Lincoln would have a V instead of an S), 1968 was only 429s for the T-bird, 460s were for the Lincoln. The 429 block will ,however, accept the 460 reciprocating assembly.

what i have come up with is that it is a c8=1968 s=thunderbird e=engine and 6059 is telling you it engine base assembly hope this helps and as woodz428 said it is probably a 429.

Are the casting numbers you giving us off the intake manifold? I have seen the numbers 6059 on Ford intakes before. Where are you getting the block casting numbers???? The drivers side by the oil filter, by the starter, or in the middle of the passenger side of the block????

The pic you show looks like it IS the water pump(probably the timing cover)....THAT is NOT the block #. Think about everything attached and take it ALL off...crank,pistons,rods,cam,front cover,WATER pump....the lump with the 8 holes and the bearings is the block. THAT has it's own # and it is located,as was mentioned, on the lower block probably in the starter area. I think that water pump is the same as the one used on the Boss 429 so it might have it's own value. I didn't think that middle code was correct for a block, I didn't look up what it was but knew it wasn't a block number I had ever seen. Post the number on the block and we can tell you what the block is. The pump # isn't too revealing since waterpumps are a regularly replaced item and the replacement one could have had a C8 number and be on a D6 block. If you look at any Ford engine( I am sure all the other mfg.s are the same), every singular piece has it's own unique casting number( as well as engineering and part#). The first 4 alpha numeric code gives some pertinent info about when at for what, the middle code( the 4 didgits that are next) tell exactly what that piece is, if there is a suffix code it indicates the changes made from the original design. Usually the first is an A...any later letter indicates a running change in the casting...it is usually to improve a weakness or revisions for addition of newer accesories,etc.

Ya, looked at it again and it's the timing belt cover, my bad. But whatever. I left my tools in the shop and don't have access to it, will get it off tomorrow and see what I find. Any other places I should look?

There's no need to remove anything, I was just illustrating that all the parts will have a casting number. The block number is not hidden or under any cover it is on the side of the Block, most likely on the starter side. Many times they won't include the middle code so it may have just the first 4 and the suffix code(i.e.D7VE-A), since the middle codes are the same for all blocks, many times they are left off. Other parts too are cast up with out the middle code for the same reason. So it may or may not have the middle code.The first 4 and the suffix are the determiners of what. Not to be picky, but it is really a timing chain, not belt, cover.
