-The second position must be a number, and there usually is a letter at the last position. a 406 example for 1962 would be PREFIX-C2AE; BASIC 6015; and SUFFIX-J. I don't believe the basic number was on the blocks (usually, anyway) so that you should be seeing C2AE-J.
According to the Ford High Performance Parts Identifier (Winkelman), other suffixes are K and V, and later B and D. 1963 blocks may be C3AE-D or V. Winkelman says that late blocks also had cross-bolted mains.
That's all I know, since I've never seen a 406 block.

The e in the second position should be a number.

A 406 block would be C2AE-BD.-j, -K, -V; or C3AE-D, -V

The 406 and 428 share a common bore of 4.13 inch. 406 stroke is same as 390 at 3.78 inch, 428 strokes out at 3.98.

6015 tells you its a block.

Add to Olwillie's and mine that the pressure relief valve will be at the rear of the main oil galley and the passages to the lifter galleys will not be drilled. This feature shows up on the 1961 390 hypo block and contines into the early 427 block up till it got the side oiler main galley.
