    Hey. So from what I have read here, my engine (E5AE C3B) is a 1985 roller engine? I bought a 1988 ford ranger and it has a 302. I am just tryin to verify the year of the engine so that i can do some work to it...

    E5 translates to 85, yes. I can't answer the roller part of the question.

    Well, I'm just saying I don't know if the casting number tells you it's a roller block. It could be someone else here can tell you from the casting number. Definitely if you pull the intake you will know. :)
