You said 302.

One piece seal blocks are termed 5.0, since they have the new lightweight crankshaft balanced at 50 oz/in at the rear and 35 oz/in at the front.
One piece seal blocks can be flat tappet or roller tappet.

(Two piece seal cranks are 28/28 balance and heavier.)

To the best of my knowledge all assembly line 5.0 roller blocks are identical.

onebadmerc I have had a couple of Ford replacement service blocks that had no casting numbers. The only thing they had on them were a small metal stamped tag with the id numbers on them. One of the engines was a 360 and the other one was a 1980 Ford 302. I guess if you have one of these blocks and the metal tag is gone then you will need to do some measuring to find out what cid it is. Then check for one piece rear seal and see if it is a roller block.

woodz428 The small blocks #'s were above the starter, not behind it. I'm not sure how late a block it is, but they were there as late as the mid to late 80s. I think that the FRPP blocks have them there as well.
