2004 focus svt 179,000 miles currently i have my engine apart for bent valves and i have noticed the cap caps are hand engraved numbers and a number on the outside end near the head gasket. these appear to be raised up not recessed like a cheap engraver does. i have all the ford service records since new ...i bought it with 55,000 miles on it .and no engine work was ever done it appeared untouched/umolested with ford parts/gaskets so i dont think it was ever apart.anyone ever see this? is it possible these engines were hand assembled? thanks lee

My guess with the hand engraved numbers would be these may have been "pullled" from zetec stock and had custom "cut/grind" per Cosworth/SVT specs.
So the engine line assembly could differentiate between "ZETEC" & "SVT" during the assembly process....
Again guessing here...
