Casting date is in lifter valley. Assembly date is to the left of water pump below cylinder head on block face.

I can barley make out the assembly date on my engine, it looks like 4 numbers, it would help if I knew the sequence of numbers. Is the first number the year? Thanks KC

Typical Ford date code stuff; Year, Month, Day

Here's mine 9F18,  Year=1969, month F=June, Day=18th    18-Jun-1969
Looks like the 1 and 8 are upside down and I image the Z is obvious :)

Just a few days ahead of the cars actual build date, 24-Jun-1969

OK Thanks, My numbers are barley visible with all the paint and I do not want to scrape it off. My car was built 2/24/69 and it looks like the stamping is 9B 20.
For some unknown reason I can`t upload pics to this site any longer. KC.
