Can someone help me ID my engine?

I have just purchased a engine from a man that was in desperate need of some money. I am not sure if it is a Hi-Po 289 or not. I have searched the forum and was not able to find out for much information on searching for engine #'s.

C6AE-6015-C under neith it is 7K1(or I)0

Also on the engine is 289 WF 8

any help would be great. on identifing this would be great and how to identify it.

Thanks

If the engine is still together and complete, here are a few indicators. It has a dual point mechanical advance dist., a thick and calibrated harmonic balancer, the exhaust manifolds are free flowing instead of truncated( they resemble a 351W). The best way will require some parts removal. The pan and valve covers should be enough to make a determination. The head will have threaded rocker studs and cast in spring seats,it has a mechanical cam, rod bolts will be 3/8 instead of the regular 5/16 and the main caps are thick, only 2 bolts but are thicker in the area above the bearing half. Since '67 was the last year of the Hi-Po, the 302 2&4 bbl came out that year, it is probably unlikely. The date code you posted should be Oct.1,1967...that would make it a 1968 engine. 289s were only 2v in '68...no Hi-Po. Now, if it turns out that you have a 4v 302( only made in '68,with the exception of the Boss) it could be pretty valuable to a '68 'stang/Shelby GT350 restorer.
The 289 WCP that you posted is likely under the intake, meaning that it is absent or off, you should be able to look at the lifters and see whether they are hydraulic or mechanical,I suspect hydraulic.

Thanks for the info.

The engine is completely a part, the heads have imprints were the valves come in. I believe that the pisting rods are bigger then the normal 289.

If it's all apart, you should be able to see the screw in studs and cast in spring seats. If you can't it's a regular 289. Once again the date code indicates it's a '68 engine which would make it a standard 2v 289. A wrench on the rod nuts and the forging # are a more precise indicater than "they look bigger", I even gave the specific sizes of the two.
IF the heads have no threaded studs and cast in spring seats they are NOT Hi-Po heads. IF the pistons have a recess and 4 valve reliefs, it is NOT a Hi-Po (the Hi-Po is flat top w/4 valve reliefs).If the harmonic balancer is not THICK and fully degreed it is NOT a Hi-Po. I doubt yours is. For Ford guys "Hi-Po" is like "Corvette" to Chevy guys.......some people ALWAYS have Corvette engines, not Chevy engines. If you added up how many 'vettes were made compared to how many 'vette engines are claimed....you'd see that it is impossible. Pretty much the same for 1968 Hi-Pos.

according to your numbers C6AE-6015-C it appears to be a 1966 289 block but your other numbers 7 k 10 inicate the motor was built october 10 1967 and it shouldnt be a hipo 289. but they did use the same casting numbers on both engines http://www.hipomustang.com/images/hipoeng/ maybe this will hep you and you can see what woodz is talking about screw in studs and the balancer main caps. cole
