I am not aware of any chalk markings in the engine bay, only elsewhere on the body, suspension parts, etc.

Cammok5, I found an E, 93 & M on the front of the radiator core support of my car. Now, I'm not saying your car will have the same things as my car, but if you have the front of the radiator core support soda blasted also you may find some markings there. On my car, my buck tag had the same things on it. The letter M matches the paint code for my car (Polar White), the 93 is in my VIN which would be for an XR-7 & according to The Cougar & Mustang Tagbook, the letter E (actually, the letter A-E was used) was used for an internal plant code use only.

My rad support (on the outside, not engine bay side, consistent with my previous comment) had a B on the PS bottom corner for the maroon paint, and a yellow splotch of paint on the DS bottom corner which I believe is consistent with the yellow marks on the steering linkage indicating power steering.

C5, did your car come with power or manual steering? On my previous comment, I have some photos in my album showing the markings to my car. John

I agree about the yellow splotch also . Wait, wasn't I the one who suggested that's what it stood for on post #853 of your ECI thread.:1poke:
