The casting code for a 351C (and many other Ford engine blocks) is
located beside (or behind) the starter cast into the side of the block.
The code for a '73 Mustang engine would be D3ZE.  D for the 1970's, 3 for
'73, Z for Mustang and E, I believe, for engine.  If this engine is a 4V
the heads will have a 4 cast into the heads that is visible at the front
of the head near where the front of the intake and head join.  2V heads
will probably not have a mark there.  Good luck with your engine.  By the
way, Ford offered 2 351C 4V engines in the Mustang for '73.  One was the
standard M code 4V motor and the other was the Q code 351C 4V HO.  Some
believe this to be a much de-tuned version of the Boss 351.  My dad has a
'73 Mach I with the Q code 351C  HO and it will scoot.

Are you in or near Raleigh NC? I'm interested in that engine & tranny,
expecially if it's a fuel injected engine like the one in my '95 f-150.

Write me off list...
