Serial Numbers

Evidently my question wasn't clear....at least it wasn't clear to PP.

I know the head didn't come with this car.....I bought it from Myers. :-). But are there any records showing what block serial number went into this car serial number?

This was sort of answered in another post about dip stick float locations. Both my cars have very close car serial numbers but one is a 5 bearing motor and one is a 3 bearing....based solely on the location of the float. So that leads me to believe ONE or both engines are not original to the car.

Still not sure my question is clear....

I have two 1926 Coupes. Both engines are approximately 72,000 higher than the VIN. Both are "B" engines. According to your data plate in the photo you have a 1927 Coupe which began with serial #A-702243. The "C" engine began approximately with #A-708560. Looks like the original engine is in your 1927 Coupe!

Thanks! I finally get it now. One of my Coupes is a B and the other is a C. This explains why the oil float moved.

I know my car is a 1927 'model' but in my mind, it came off the assembly line in 1926 so I call it a 1926....

Anyway, thanks for. Oh, my other car's VIN is 765596. So a C engine.

Where can I read about the differences in the B and C engines?

So I see you have a pair of 1927 Dodge Coupes!

Ssssshhhhh! Don't tell my friends and family. I've been saying all along they are 1926.

From now on I will just say their birthdays are in July 1926 and Sept 1926.

I have that manual. I concluded earlier I had one car with a B and one with a C. But I'm looking at the manual and see "single unit electrical B engine. Both my cars have two elec units.

But I do see the pix posted in another tread. Guess I need to read more.....
