Engine Identification

As some of you might know im working on an engine that i was told to be a boss 351 and im trying to identify the block for myself. I guess ford motors have a tag on the front of the engine that tells you what the specs are but this block doesnt have that it mustve been taken off. i do know that because of the number of bolts on the valve covers that it is either a cleveland or a boss but thats about all i know. what else should i be looking at? i know chevy blocks you can call a dealer and give them casting numbers to figure out what the block was, does ford do that as well? thanks for the help

DOAE-L OG27

1F10400

The zeros could be "o's" im not sure.

I found out the intake was replaced with a different one because someone stole the old one...some numbers on the intake

DOAE-9425-L 0G24

18726548

I really need to know what kind of engine this is, its killing me!

The numbers you posted is not for a 1971 351 Boss Block. The letter D stands for decade which is the 70's, 0 is for the year 70, A stands for type of car which motor is designated for and E stands for engine. The Mustang had a Z code and the Boss 351 was only produced in 71 so the block casting will be a D1ZE-???? number. The next numbers (1F10400) are the machining date, 1 stands for 1971, F stands for month which should be June, 10 stands for date which is June 10 and the 400 I am not sure about. The last set of numbers (18726548) is the firing order.

The D0AE-L should be a standard 2-bolt main, 351C block.

As stated above the Boss 351 would be a D1ZE-B and have 4-bolt mains.

Screw Up

Im sorry i posted the wrong set of numbers from the engine block i did confirm the firing order and i thought that DOAE-L was that too but ive found information that tells 2 different stories. I found one place that said DOAE was a BOSS and another site said it was a cleveland modified or a 400. The correct set of numbers would be as follows:

1F104000

Stupid me i forgot a zero at the end.
