This site has an abridged version of the encyclopedia where you can look up your engine serial number. That will give you the month. The full encyclopedia on disk will give you the day. If you don't have the disk yet I can look up the date for you. I believe newly assembled engines were usually installed in a car within a day or two.

Info on the encyclopedia is included here: http://dauntlessgeezer.com/DG80.html

The frame number was introduced in december 1925 when already about 700,000 1926 style cars had been built since August, so it's not certain you have one. But if you have one of the rest about 1.1 million 1926 cars with the engine number stamped on the frame, then it's found on top of the frame about where the brake cross shaft goes, most often on the RH side.

Monday, September 21, 1914. Apparently the casting date is day/month/year (Friday, 11 September 1914).

Steve, The United States military normally uses the "dd mmm yyyy" format for correspondence. Have you found this format used on other model T's ?

Have you seen the second number in the casting date greater than 12 ?

I would say the number has been re-stamped and is earlier then the casting number. As far as I know it is Month-Day-Year and I am also coming up with Sept. 21 1914 by the stamped number. (you can see part of the another number on the right side, looks like maybe a 9)

Ooops ! Posted to the wrong thread. Here's the casting date on my '13 - month, day, year.

One of my Ts had a stamped serial number earlier than the casting date (about five months). I figured it was an early replacement engine. That is my story, and I am sticking to it.
