351W police or HO block casting #\'s

I am trying to ID a block that I want to purchase but I'm having a hard time finding any info on casting numbers. If anyone has any info to help I would appreciate it. The block in question has a casting number of E4AE-6015-FA-6.
Casting date 7E21. This block is supposed to be heavy duty according to the seller but I would like some corroboration from outside sources before spending my cash.

Thanks,

Ric

As far as "factory" 351 windsor blocks go, I've never seen a bad one or a special one? They are all good, they are much stronger than the 289 - 302. The only differences that I know about are the standard block, the late model roller lifter block and the after market block (SVO, Dart/World Products).

SVO has several blocks, the one you may be looking at is a two bolt main, high nickle block supposedly meant for "claim racers" in oval tracks. It was not a factory piece, it was from FMS/SVO. Others had raised decks, siamiesed cylinders, etc. If you look in any recent Ford motorsprot catalog you will find methods to identify the blocks as well as part numbers.

That is assuming it is a motorsport block, if its Dart/World Products...then I have no idea of how to I.D. it. Maybe some of the stroker guys have better info?

The part number you offered is a factory part number, probably 1987? Other than that, I can't see how it would be "special". I'd like to know more about any factory special 351 blocks if anyone has additional info.

The E4 of the casting number indicates that it is a 1984 block. The first character E indicates the decade, in this case the 1980's and the second digit indicates the year within that decade, in this case the 4 would mean 1984.

Decades: C=1960's, D= 1970's, E= 1980's

The A and the E that follows the year indicators I believe indicate that it is an engine as opposed to chassis or body part. I will look this up in a Ford book and post the info later. The actual part number would be the 6015 wich is the part # for engine blocks.

That is just a PN# indicating the design date as being an 84 design. The casting date shows it was cast in 87.
