Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2005: Exact date of engine
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Glenn Pullin on Monday, March 10, 2008 - 12:57 am:

Hi
Ive seen US records for T engines with the exact date manufactured.
My research has only identified cast dates - dates between which the block was cast.
My engine number is C529432.
According to my research :
Previous cast date 22 Oct 1924
Next cast 12 Nov 1924
Therefore, this engine was cast around the start of November 1924.
How can i identify the exact date as others have done? Is it possible with Canadian engines?
Glenn

Glenn, re C529432. canadian records indicate the following;
Nov 30 1924 C-525808
Dec 31 1924 C-530621
these are engine dates. other dates maybe stamped on the body,floorboards,seat riser,etc.

Glenn, does it not have a casting date on it?
It should be in a circle, with one letter and 2 numbers. The letter indicates the year and the numbers the day and month.
A=1923
B=1924
C=1925
D=1926
Etc.
