The "file size" of the photo has to be less than 2mb, to be able to upload it.

There is a letter/number cast into the side of the block above the oil pan rail. If you see ECZ-xxxx-A or C, there is a good chance it is a 312. The only way for sure is to look on the crank flange for a flat spot with a dot in the center. Then it is a 312. Ford made both 292's and 312's on that same block in the last years of the 312, just machined the main bores to a larger size for 312's. John Mummerts website shows and explains all this in greater detail.

The dot on a 312 crankshaft, as streetdreams mentioned. (photo 1)
Main bearing caps for a 312 have an ECZ prefix casting number. All others are EBU.

Two links to the *ID a 312* pages on John Mummerts website...

I've been trying to post a photo of the engine. But it says my security token is missing? Dumb guy--don't know what that means. The photo isn't large MB?

If you can send the photo to dmsfrr@gmail.com I'll try to post it for you.
But it may a bit... I'm fairly busy today cleaning out a space in the garage for a car I'm leaving town to pick up tomorrow.

Still cannot determine engine size. The cross over exhaust is early, but I've seen 312 long blocks under that old exhaust and lifter galley covers.

What do you see that leads you to think it is a 292?

thanks for posting the photos-you're more computer savvy than I. I'm listing the engine for sale. What's a fair price? Part it out or as a whole? I live in Greenville VA. I have a couple of Ford trucks a 62 and 64 F 100s. Picked this engine up to put into the 62-- but we ended up rebuilding the one was that in it.

That's going to be hard to determine until the engine is identified.

Where is Greenville, VA?

I can take a guess from the pictures, but a block and head casting number would help a lot. Heads are '56 or later. The distributor is '57 or later. Rocker arm adjusting nuts are '57 or later. The front cover has two flat machined bosses on top (I think that's truck ?).
If I guessed, I would say it's a truck 292 from '58 to the early 60's. Plus pretty sure they stopped building 272's after 1957.

I stand corrected. The 272 was still available in '58 and possibly '59 in trucks.

I should have known that. Born in Roanoke and am now a little above Martinsburg, WV (still trying to figure out how I wound up here in Yankee Country ... ).

the 272 was used in early 58 and then was upped to 292.scicala pointed out why it should be a 292.the valley cover is 58 or newer.unless someone shifted things around its a 292.if we knew what heads we could figure the year.

Cool Re: 292 312 Ford Engine

Let's guess the ENGINE ID with just a few picture ...

That engine could be any combination of parts over the service life of the FYB.

It has to be ID'd by the CASTING ID and DATE CODE NOS.

What if the OP tries to sell it using incorrect info and once the buyer puts it on a forensic table finds what it was described as isn't?

I feel like I am watching old I CAME NAME THAT TUNE TV shows ...
