Main Bearing Issue

I have what i think is a 99 4.6l block that I'm building up to put in the car. I pulled everything and cleaned all i need too, but im having trouble finding the right bearings to put in. I ordered through o reilly's and they gave me bearings without a thrust bearing, so i returned them. then i ordered through Autozone and they gave me the bearings With a thrust bearing, however the tabs are offset and i need centered tabs for the block. I have No clue what bearings i need and am at my wits end trying to find out what bearings and block i actually need and have. Its getting So frustrating. Ive been looking up everything i can about what to get but cant find them. the part number on a bearing that came out is F9ZE-AA. any help is appreciated!

There should be a serial number on the block. Get that and call ford and ask what it is

Maybe try and look where the starter goes for a stamp.. You may have to remove the starter also.

Or maybe at the rear of the block. It might be a dot matrix kind of type instead of actual numbers. Like this

All I've found are these. I know it was made on 04/18/99 at 9:11. But the rest i have no clue what they mean. Those are all the markings on the engine with visible letters and such. Besides one i couldn't get a picture of. XW7E then below it is 601S or 5 -AA

Well I don't know for sure which one is which but maybe a call to ford can clear it all up. The 99 and 2000 blocks are Windsor blocks. All the other 2 valve mustangs are Romeo blocks. Do a search on Romeo vs Windsor and it can tell you all about the differences.
