The factory 429 CJ/SCJ engine will have ALL of the following casting numbers:

  • Cylinder heads: D0OE-R.  This number is located on the OUTSIDE of the head, along the valve cover mounting rail and between the 3rd and 4th exhaust ports.  Any other casting number is NOT a Cobra Jet head of any kind
  • Block: D0VE-A. This number is located on the side of the cylinder block, behind the mounted starter motor and reads vertically.  Bring rags and a flashight. Any other casting number is NOT a Cobra Jet (99.8% unlikely).
  • Intake manifold: D0OE-9425-C.  This number is right along side the carburetor mounting pad.  PLEASE NOTE: Virtually all Ford 460 marine engines came with the factory iron 429CJ intake manifold casting; therefore in no way does a 429 CJ intake by itself identify a Cobra Jet engine.

AA/Paul,

You're welcome. Post the numbers that you find. Also, if the engine turns out to be what the owner claims, then I might know somebody in Coloroado Springs who could be interested.

D3VE's are the most common production head of the carbuetted 429/460 engines.  Most all of them came with cavernous dished pistons beneath them and had a measely 7.9:1 c/r, which I'll bet the above engine has...it's a dime-a-dozen 460, not a CJ engine.  But being that it's in a boat, it may very well have the D0OE-9425-C iron CJ intake manifold if it is indeed the original issue 460 marine engine.

I cannot locate an SCJ vs. D3VE picture, but here is an SCJ vs. BBC 820 picture (the BBC 820 ports are about the same size as the D3VE ports):

I've bought more than 10 in the last year, $800 - $1200 for a runner, only if it has a Berkeley pump, would be a typical "steal" price. If it has anything other than a Berkeley pump, $300 - $700.
