Here are the spec's for the 1965 mercury comet, 289 V8:

For 1965, the Comet Cyclone was powered by the 289-cu.in. V-8 with 225hp, the same engine that was put into Mustangs. And for more power, there was a special high-performance package, better known as "Hi-Po," available with the Cyclone, and it shared the 271hp V-8 which, when installed in a Mustang, was known as the "K" code car. In the Comet, the engine code is "A." When equipped with the Hi-Po package, a 1965 Cyclone came standard with: 289 four-barrel high-performance engine, four-speed Toploader transmission, nine-inch differential, performance suspension, quick-ratio steering and 8,000-rpm Rotunda tachometer. However, the following items were extra-cost mandatory options with the 271hp engine package: four-speed transmission, heavy-duty front suspension, low-profile rayon tires and 42-amp alternator, according to 1965 sales information.

Its a 9-inch differential at best. Try this link for more data:

I would like to know about an engine number they say it is number C5AE6016 (5B11W)its in a 65 F/B date 13T engine code A unit no. 157042 was there a 6016 block???


Yes. It had larger main caps than the typical 289 block. However there are variations on the theme and you could see a smallblock with a 6016 that predates the 289 alltogether (260 or smaller) as well as into the 70s even on a 351 windsor! Hopefully you have a hipo 289 bottom end with the larger caps and thats all you need to know.

I have a 1965 Ford 289 which I want to upgrade to a roller tip rocker arm. I ordered from Speedway Motors part #575-83201. I also ordered new pushrods and was sent part #915-14100. The new pushrods are...


You may be able to use them,there should be enough adjustment to make them work.FordMotorsports and Crane make a pushrod that is 8.640 which is what I used with those rockers.To check fit install 1 pushrod and 1 rocker on #1 cyl turn the engine over by hand 2 revolutions and then check and make sure the rocker tip is dead center on the valve,if it is you're good to go.

Pulsating gas pedal in low speeds, if you go really easy on the pedal untill ~25, it will not pulse at all.


Make sure the carb is bolted tight to the manifold too. Loose nuts can cause this.
