Response to same as before....
I have had the same problem...
I bought a "real" 390-GT (IP- at that time) 1969.
And was thinking that I was fooled, but the block really after 3-4 years of inspection and checking here and there came out as original !
So that is what it takes. Nobody can tell what block you have... a servie one or original... There has been block with high Nickel concentration and reinforced webs, if anybody happends to find one of theese then hes is a LUCKY guy because they are extraordinary (look out for them at old water-POWER-sports dungeons, but check that the enigne rotates correctly...). If anybody wants to get info on his/her block then the best way is to get as much books/papers on FE:s and then make a database of all info.. then rule out the "not soo possible" cases, then you will probably get the best/nearest result. I've heard/read that Ford "destroyed" all casting-data they used, when new times came.
