[updated:LAST EDITED ON 24-May-02 AT 11:37 PM (EST)]I beleive the [i] you have there is really a 1 . The [d] means 70s the [1] means 1 and the [v] is lincoln and the [e] is for engine.
So its a 1971 lincoln engine. The a2a is just more of a production date. I beleive this is all correct but Im kinda new to these codes myself. Im sure you will get more input.

Good Luck Andy

Sorry my post got screwed up there some how. The [i] you have is really a [1]. So here goes.

D IS FOR 1970'S

1 IS FOR 71

V IS FOR Lincoln Continental 1961-1981

E is the source code for engine

So its a 1971 lincoln engine. The a2a is a production code. I beleive this is all correct but Im kinda new to these codes myself. Im sure there will be more input.

Good Luck Andy

That looks correct to me too. The V for Lincoln is for the originail intended model I think. I have only seen V (Lincoln) and T (Truck) 460 casting codes. The a2a production code is the parts revision code. The a2a is one design rev older than a a2b for example.

thanks for the help on the decoding. I'm in the process of finding a good machine shop to inspect and work on my block and heads. I'll post how its going when i get it built.
