I've got a capri with a small block ford in it, apparentley it's a 302 windsor but i want to make sure and find out how old the donk is, does anyone know where the casting numbers are on the block and what the numbers mean. cheers
You didn't state what year Capri, so it could be one of the oddball 255s they made for a couple years. The block casting # is on the block just above the starter. If you post it I or someone else can tell you what it is. An easy way to determine if it's a 255 is to look at the port shape of the intake runners. The 302 has noticeable rectangular shape and the 255 has a smaller oval shape. The intake casting # could also help if you don't believe the engine has been opened before.
