Need help with engine numbers


Recommended Posts

I have two straight eight engines for which I am needing information. The first is what I believe is supposed to be '34 or '35 and having an engine number 42918477. The second is a later 320 engine of unknown year with a number 50147627.

Any help is very much appreciated,

Joel

Dear Joel:

Al is correct on the 1948 Roadmaster engine, which was built in March 1948.

Dear Al:

A correction for you: in 1941 and prior years, the identity digit is ON THE FRONT!!!!

The correct interpretation is: 4 (for a 40 series) 2,918,477. This is an engine built in July 1934 for a 1934 40 series car.

I hope this helps and clarifies things.

Regards, Dave Corbin
