I just bought a Model T engine and Transmission at an auction and am trying to figure out exactly what I have. Over top of the coolant inlet the # is 13458090 or 13458099(the last 2 digits are harder to read than the rest.
To the right of the coolant inlet, where all of the forums say I should be able to find the date code, there are no numbers. To the left of it though there is a 28 6. There is something between them but I think it is more of a pointer than a number. (added a pic of it)
Can anyone help me out?
Keeps telling me my pic is too big.
Yes, there's a picture file size limit of 250 KB. Make a copy of your picture and resize the copy.
Your engine's assembly date is Thursday, April 1, 1926.
April of 1926
USA engines stopped putting on date codes about 1922. Canadian engines continued date coding engines till almost the end of production. The other cast in numbers were mold/pattern identification numbers, used to trace defective castings back to their source. They have no real relevance since the cars left the factory.
