Default Any Ford brains in here? Motor identification help needed.

I'm having a hard time identifying this motor. I was told it was a Cleveland 351 out of a 1979 truck. Well, after some research it seems that is incorrect. The Cleveland wasn't made after 1974 according to every site I've researched them on.

So today I went down to the shop and pulled the casting marks off the block. They read D2AE-CA and directly under these numbers it says 3K13.

From what I read, D2 stands for 1972, and AE stands for Ford engine. The CA seems to come up under different applications, all for a 351, but it doesn't specify how to differentiate between the different ones.

I guess the 3k13 represents the build date, but I haven't found any solid info on this number.

Anyone here have any experience with this? Is there anywhere else I can pull numbers from to match this motor, without having to take it apart? It has a aftermarket intake manifold and carburetor on it, so those numbers wont do me any good.

Clearly 3k13 means it was built in 3013, or 3013 is the expiration date on the motor, other than that, I am of no use.
