My Ranchero is a 1965 model but the engine is not original, it originally was a 6 cyl. w/ 3 speed and now has a V/8 with a C-4 Auto trans.

If by chance you can find out what year your engine was produced, this would help out a lot because the
289 was made from 1963-1968 and the 302 was only made in 1968.

Can you post the casting number?
