Re: Ford bearing numbers decode...
Ford Part Numbers:
the part number is divided into 3 sections
The prefix (C50E) this identifies the engine type
The middle bit (6211) this if Fords generic number for a rod bearing and still is today.
The suffix (AB) this identifies the actual design level of the part.
Often bearings are colour coded to identify the various grades, this marking disappears when the engine has been run for a while, which isn't very helpful.
