    Hi Guy's, having an issue here in Oz trying to locate the engine serial number on a 4.6 in a 97. Can someone please tell me where to look?

    IIRC, Ford didn't stamp these motors with their identification numbers.

    I believe you can look up the cars vin if you have that and it will tell you the block info.

    My buddy works at ford in parts and he said they didn't start keeping track of engines like that until mid-2000s. They have engine codes but not VINs
