1930's Dodge pickup motor numbers


Recommended Posts

My father has a 1934-35 Dodge pickup that he has done a compelte restoration of. He has the original motor, but it was in rough shape for an show car so he found another motor and he was wondering about the numbers on the engine block. From what he could see it appeared to be DU-135661. He wasn't sure if the 1's where "I's" or what. I wasn't able to find much on the internet, so if anyone can help me out it would be greatly appriciated! Thanks!!

Have you already installed the DU block? I seem to remember from 40 years ago that the 34 and older blocks have short water jackets and 35 up has full length. This presents a starter clearance problem when installing a late block to an early bellhousing.
