as far as i can find out a jg37 is a standard bore block so i think it must be fairly standard.

apparently jg37 is a 302 windsor with cleveland additions like water pump. Not too sure how reliable the source is i got this info from however. Maybe take the engine no to ford they should be able to give you details

JG37

J = Australia

G = Broadmeadow

37 = FAIRLANE 500

here is the full list -:

The first letter represents the country of manufacture - J being Australia.

The next letter represents the manufacturing plant:

G = Broadmeadonw
H = Brisbane
K = Sydney
L = Broadmeadows Secondary Line

The next two digits represent the actual model:

11 = FUTURA SEDAN
12 = FUTURA TAXI
21 = FALCON SEDAN
22 = FALCON TAXI
23 = FALCON 500 SEDAN
24 = FALCON 500 TAXI
30 = FALCON WAGON
31 = FALCON 500 WAGON
33 = FALCON GT SEDAN
34 = FAIRMONT SEDAN
35 = FAIRMONT WAGON
36 = FAIRLANE CUSTOM
37 = FAIRLANE 500
38 = FAIRLANE CUSTOM TAXI
39 = FAIRLANE 500 TAXI
40 = FALCON UTILITY
41 = FALCON 500 UTILITY
42 = FALCON VAN
43 = FALCON 4WD UTE
45 = FALCON 500 VAN
62 = GALAXIE SEDAN
63 = FAIRLANE MARQUIS
65 = FALCON 500 COUPE
66 = FALCON GT COUPE
67 = FAIRMONT COUPE
70 = LANDAU HARDTOP
71 = LTD

The next 2 letters represent the month and year of manufacture and the last digits are the serial number.

That should answer your question - Engine type is determined by engine code on compliance plate if you post the code and year model I should be able to find if its H/C or L/C 4V 2V etc
