Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Number on side of engine... not serial number

Hey there guys...I apologize if this is a pretty 'no brainer' question, but as a newbie to the T world, which I am loving, I have to ask.

The large number on the side of the T engine, does this represent the year of the engine? I am not talking about the serial number plate.





large number on side of T engine

Not. :-)
Is there a stamped number hiding under the paint just above the water inlet elbow in your pic? See that rectangle on the block right above the water connection?
That's the one you might be lookin' for. :-)

Thanks for the quick response Duey. I have a stamped number on the block as you are describing... and I can cross reference that. I am just seeing if there is any rhyme or reason to the larger number.

thanks again!

Did you post about that engine on Facebook too? I think I wrote an answer about that number, but can't find it here.

Now I found the tread I was thinking about - it wasn't about your engine, it was another with a similar number - likely a mold number, since USA made Model T blocks didn't have any casting dates after the last blocks with two valve covers were made in early 1922.
