We have an NOS long block with cylinder head, but I believe it's for 1937.

Externally, is there a good way to tell a Mercury series from the Eagle series?

I actually have no idea. I am trying to help out a friend of a European customer we have whose engine is cracked beyond repair.

The purist will know this. Maybe pose that question up in General Discussion.

From the "Generator and Distributor" article many years ago, VCCA newsletter.

"Eagle" is early 1933, replaced by "Master" series, virtually identical. There is no "Mercury" only a 1933 "Standard" series, the VCCA has basically eliminated the "Mercury" designation. Go to the VCCA website and look at the historical research supporting this. I know the term "Mercury" is popular but it never existed at least from a Chevrolet perspective.

 

1933 Chevrolet Head casting number Master, Eagle CA Model Cars 836961

1933 Chevrolet Head casting number Standard CC Model Cars 600569

 

1933 and 1934 Chevrolet Cylinder Block casting number Master, Eagle CA and DA Models Car and Trucks 837231

1933 Chevrolet Cylinder Block casting number Standard CC Model Cars 473180

1934 Chevrolet Cylinder Block casting number Standard DC Model Cars 473741

 

I don't know if a 1934 or 1935 Standard engine would fit in a 1933 Standard car.

That is good information. Now Restorer32  has casting numbers to reference. I think the CC was out there all by it's self.
