Later replacement engine with restamped block with engine no. to far to one side? Something like that?
How about the casting date that says July 7 1920
may have been a replacement eng that was numbered by the installer after the original eng. bit the dust.
I agree G.R., also has later pan fwiw. No doubt needs a full rebuild. Too much $$
The boss was much shorter in 1914.
I think people should look at the picture that show's the right side of the engine? Bud.
It has the long, one piece valve cover, too.
That motor has a 1920 cast date with the 1 of valve cover. I have a motor with a 1921 cast date with the 2 of covers. It's a replacement block too and has no numbers stamped. When I took it all apart there was no ring gear so it must have replaced a non starter engine but with the large front pulley. Wonder how long was the overlap in the valve cover change? Mine is a year later with the old style covers.also that motor has a 425,xxx number, my 14 has a 429,xxx number cast 10-29-13
Rare 1914 prototype for starter and generator.
