just bought a 64 cyclone with k-code 289 and was trying to find the hp rating.
i did some research and it is either 210 or 271 but some say the 271 was only available in ford models and is called hi-po 289. also how can i tell if it is the original motor? i know ford casting numbers and these all start with c4 and the tag at the temp sender says 289-64.also i know that 7454 cyclones were made in 64-is there a site or link where i can find out how many were made with my particular options? any info will help. thank you for your time.

was in hurry last night did not do all research .the cyclone also used the 271 hp engine is a 4 barrel carb.valve covers had decal saying special.casting # on early heads is c3oe6090f on engines built before 3/26/ not have casting # for later but part #is c5oz6049a. the 271 hp engine had solid lifters and larger valves. an interesting note showed a team of cyclones with 271 hp engines traveled over 100,000 miles at a speed in excess of 100 miles per hour.the early engines had 5 bolts that held bellhousing to engine ,and a 65 they had 6 and used an altenator.
