Casting number adventures

I have a 1972 Ford F100 with a 390 in it with the 352 stamp up front and the intake in which the the distributor goes through. I searched for the id tag behind the coil which is not there, no casting number on either side of the block. The only cast numbers I've found is below the where the oil filter set up connects to the block in the front. The casting numbers on the heads are C8AE H. The front of the block on the drivers side looking from the front of the truck is A 4 above 352. The intake is a Weiand 7282 with a 2 barrel motorcraft with no ID tag. I attached a picture of the only numbers I could find without taking anything apart. Please any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Casting number adventures

regular 390 heads, block cast on June 7th 1968. You will probably find the numbers C8AE-A on the Block under the head near the starter.

Run of the mill 390.

When my Gecko is broken, does that mean I have 'A REPTILE' Dysfunction?
