They should be on the passenger side of the engine on a small pad forward of the valves and just behind the cam gear. In late 11 they moved to the other side by the water inlet.

Is the engine open valved?

On my 1926 it is located on the driver's side of the block above the water inlet. Back in November of 2007, I was corrected by Eric Hylen who informed me that, on a 1910, the number is located on a boss behind the timing cover. Jim

The 1910 and 1911 blocks will have the casting date above the water inlet. Some of these blocks don't have casting dates at all.

Here is a '10-

10Block-1

10Block-2

This is a late '11-

llBlock-2

Serial number is on a pad above the front cam bearing on both open and closed valve blocks until about 1912.


11Block-1

The very early 09 blocks are a different animal, having the serial number between the center exhaust ports.

A '10 would have to be an open valve block so would a very early '11. If it's a closed valve block it has to be '11 or later. Serial #'s are not always the best way to tell the year as replacement blocks were sent out without serial numbers so they could be stamped with the number on the block being replaced. As a result, the casting date would be a better indication of the year of the block.
