With the ruler on it, I agree.....is bigger than it appeared in the first photo. At that length it could easily be 420 cid. 👍

Gasket catalogs list a Lyc 8 AE-AEC-AED=AEF 33/4x43/4, and listed with it is UE-UED Marine, same b/s...looks like the marine versions have some ot their own  part numbers, UE-, as surmised above (AE- for the others, some apparently shared) ...

WOW...Great info Bud...THank you very much.

It probably is an AE series motor marine version. 420 CI. I owned two of them with dual plug heads in American Lagrange fire trucks. Nothing repeat nothing interchanges with a Duesenberg engine tho same CI.  I restored a Duesenberg from scratch and bought the motors to compare to a Duesenberg. Just a large slow moving flathead from lycoming. Made in late 1930s. George Albright Ocala fla. ps those are correct gaskets for this motor
