Please help me identify this motor

Post  Georg on March 10th 2014, 12:27 pm

I have one Ford engine in build but those parts what I found inside confuse me a bit. Behind the motor its stamped 460 but when I measured cilinder bore then I got result 4.36"
Block code stamped : DIVE6015AA
Crankshaft code is 4UE ( main measured 3.00" and rod measured 2.51" ) Both bearings were std. size
On piston there was stamped : 429 on one side and D2AE on other side
Rods have code stamped : 09AE 6210-8
Cilinder heads have casting : D2VEAA

Can you please tell with what exact engine Iam dealing with and what are the engine specs like:
stock bore
stoke stroke
stock rod lenght

Thanks a lot!

Georg

Same one I have it sounds like. 1972 429. The block is a 1971, with 1972 heads, which is how mine left the factory. Was it a 2 or 4 barrel carb?

You have a 1972 429 engine. Bore x stroke 4.36" x 3.59". Those heads were a one year only deal and had an open chamber. Some do not like these heads as they tend to be more prone to detonation on pump gas. They are regular passager car heads otherwise.

The block is an early D1VE and may have "thick" webs like a D0VE-A. Most do not, but it is possible. The thick webs are nice to have if you want to add 4 bolt mains. In fact some of those blocks had 4 bolt mains, although is rare and sure if yours did you would have noticed it. You can tell a thick web block as the webbing is machined flat from the caps to the pan rails.

4.36" bore, 3.59" stroke, 6.605" rods, around 8/1 compression, with pedalstal mount rockers. If you are in Texas or close by I need a set of D2's if you decide not to use them?

No 2V 429 in 1972. You will find that block casting code on some 1972 production engines too.

I don't think mine was ever opened, and it had a 2 barrel card and intake when I got it. I think it was out of an old Mecury, if that makes any difference. D1 block with D2 heads. I don't have the intake over here and I can't remember the casting number.

http://www.automobile-catalog.com/make/mercury/full-size_mercury_8gen/full-size_mercury_8gen_brougham_hardtop_coupe/1971.html I believe you are right. I found only 4V's available in 1972. 1971 was the last year or the 2V's it looks like. I wonder if the D2 heads came out early and Ford used them up on the 2V engines in 1971 1/2, as they wanted or knew the D3's where coming out and the D2's had problems with low octane?

If you want to stay 429, that is correct. If you swap to a 460 crank you can use all the pistons for the 460 which is 3.85" stroke. 2Y 460 cranks are internal balance and made until 1978 or so. You will have a better piston selection with the 460. All depends on what you want to do with the engine.
