As far as I know ford has several different engine production facilities which each built a particular engine family..Those engines were then sent to various assembly locations where they were installed into finished cars..This is why you will find the same basic engines installed into several kinds of Ford cars and trucks. For example you can find the 460 in Ford trucks..Mercury and some Lincolns. Windsor engines were in mustangs, ford trucks, ford cars as well as mercury and lincoln..I forget just where the M's all wound up but those are common in pickups..gets a bit confusing at times but then all we need to know is what family a particular engine comes from and act accordingly in the parts dept..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
