There is a lot of confusion on the internet regarding cylinder head casting numbers. Most published lists of casting numbers have used information from unconfirmed sources. I doubt that we have each and every one listed either, but we have tried to not fall into the guessing game of using the Ford engineering numbers for use with casting numbers. That is why we find variations on the machine work on cylinder heads with the same casting numbers. We will not get into cross applications either. There are way too many rules and exceptions. A seasoned engine rebuilder or internet research at places like FordFE.com and small block Ford Tech Will help with cylinder head selection.
