looking for 1913 canadian block to redo for a
1913 car as it now has a 1914 block and would
like to redo engine and replace block with a correct one. thanks Bob Bailey
Bob, what month is your 14 block?
Can you not just take a USA block and grind off the Made in USA? Then stamp a C number on it.
All the early 13 Canada cars I have seen were done that way. Was Canada making blocks in 13? I thought they started in 14.
My early 13 was from Canada and the engine was done that way. Dan
The number appears to be 236814313
236 million, too many numbers.
Sorry number appears to be 2368143
I believe the serial numbers on a Canadian 1914 block should fall between 11,584 and 15,657.
The 1913 production numbers are from 6388 to 11,587.
Bob, if those numbers are right your 1914 engine is a late nov 1917 usa made engine.
Sorry guys, I was looking at production numbers above from 1908 to 1914.
Canadian engine 1913 serial numbers from May 20, 1913 to July 31 1913 were 1 to 1500.
From August 1st 1913 to July 31 1914 were 1500 to 16500.
Hello: I have Canadian car chassis with a wooden type pickup body.The motor # is C9627-what month would this block been cast? Just curious.
I am also looking for a 1914 block,maybe in the southeast?
I was told the early canadian engines where USA ones with the MADE IN USA chiseled off and then stamped with C---- numbers? A few ole boys have told me this one? Any imput from some ole scholars out there?
David, c9627 would be late 1913.
Joe, Dan addressed early canadian engines being usa made engines with usa ground off the castings. However with regards to changing s/n, usa made engines kept the usa s/n, the c1 s/n started with canadian made engines in 1913 according to Bruce McCalley.
From some previous discussions:
What I have gathered from previous discussions,
It seems prior to May 20, 1913, (or May 1st in first chart) Ford Motor Company Detroit supplied the Canadian plant with complete engines stamped with U.S. serial numbers.
Beginning May 20, 1913, Ford Canada began the complete finishing, machining and assembling, of U.S. supplied block castings. It was not until late 1918 or early 1919 that Ford Canada began to actually cast their own blocks in Canada.

So if I follow well something will not fit with this serial number provided...
