67 to 72 F600 Engine identification

He everyone! I think I've found the correct thread this time. Looking for some insight on identifying the engine in my rig.

(Quick note, Washington State Title claims it's a 1966 (body is of 67-72 style) and door tag claims 1969)

I bought an F600 flatbed from a nice guy, everything he told me corresponded to the door tag, which claims, 1969, 330engine, Wimbledon White, San Jose, etc. Engine has 5 bolts on the valve and a 352 casting stamp, so I'm thinking it's 352,360,390. Either engine or door is unoriginal.

How do I find out more on the engine, and any tips on finding a chassis Vin?(I checked in the top passenger frame rail for grille to bed mount, aside from under cab) thanks in advance

I've seen that 352 stamped on most all FE and FH engines, I don't think it means anything, post some pic's of your engine.

The 330 FT engine will visually look like the FE series engines to a certain extent. There are some differences like the oil filter setup and the large crank snout on the heavy duty 330. I believe heavy duty 330 did not have a spin on oil filter, it was a cartridge type. Check your intake to make sure there isn't a metal identification tag bolted on. You could pull a spark plug and measure stroke with a wooden dowel but I believe 330 and 352,360 all share 3.5" stroke. Could pull a head and measure bore....330 I believe is 3.875" bore compared to 4.00" on others.

VIN engine code C = This is a 330 2V Medium Duty FT engine.

Pay no attention to the 352 cast on the block, it's a foundry mark found on myriad FE & FT engines thru circa 1970.

Okay, so the 330 falls into that block style? For some reason I thought it was different. I had no reason to believe the engine is unoriginal otherwise. Just the 1966 title throws me off

The FE and FT engines are the same "basic" design.

Externally, they are nearly identical in any given year, and have the same dimensions.

They share the same bore and stroke in two cases, 360/361 and 390/391.

Internally they are different in that the FT block has a larger hole for the distributor, some are said to have reinforced lower ends. Pistons and cranks are different as well. Blocks may have an oil return port for trucks with air compressors for air brakes.

Heads and intake/exhaust manifolds differ. The FT uses a central exhaust cross over port, the FE offsets the cross over. Carbs and distributors are governed on FT motors. Oil filters are different--cartridge vs spin on in some models. Oil pans differ.

Front covers differ due to the larger crank snout and the provision for the front engine mount. They are iron vs. aluminum for the FE. Bell housings differ, as they have the rear engine mounts incorporated on the sides.

There are more differences but I think that's enough for the moment.

The FE/FT Powered by Ford valve covers were not introduced until 1967.
