Decode engine casting number?
how can you decode an engine number?

depends on the engine, on the 351, it is on the left side head deck/rear side. On the 302 it's near where the alternator is mounted, if you have the shop manuals, it will tell you on the first page for your particular engine. Most Early Mustang engines (pre 1968) do not have the VIN number stamped i…nto the block.. The exception being "K Code" 289 High Output equiped vehicles where engines were stamped with the vehicle number. Additional info to above answer: Ford V-8 engine BLOCK casting numbers of all 1960 - later Ford V8s are located on a flat casting area nearest & under the starter. (Yes, you must remove the starter to see the whole number, bring a small brush and carbcleaner spray). If you practice upside down mirror reading and Yoga, then you don't need to climb under the car. The casting numbers will be a 4digit - 4digit - 1digit format. This gives block designation info as to Decade, year, car models, and part number and exclusive designation. Eg: 1965 289-2V or a 289HiPo will both share the same casting number for 65-66 C5AE-6015-E, except that the HiPo will additionally have the car VIN stamped nearest the oilpan gasket/rearward as a HiPo exception to prove Mustang powerplant bloodlines. Nobody forgot to stamp a VIN at the factory. No other Mustangs had VINs stamped into engines. Some people mistake the intake casting number on top of the intake manifold as the engine casting number, but alas, it's the intake casting number to give that part authenticity too. Check with a reliable source for part ID. I have disassembled many 64-73 Mustangs in California with a variety of 1yr Block/different yr head/intake/exhaust combos with claims of hypo-yada yada or secret Ford engine with common vin numbers. Many, many, older motors (of every brand) were assembled in the last 45 years with various off-year parts to try to achieve a special performance blend....some were successful. (MORE)
FOR EXAMPLE, IF THE BLOCK NUMBER IS C2DE 6015 BA, THE FIRST DIGET 'C' MEANS THE YEAR, SIXTY'S. C= 60'S. D=70'S. E=80'S. SECOND DIGET IS THE YEAR, IN THIS CASE IT WOULD BE A 1962!. THE 6015 IS A NUMBER THAT FORD USES!. THE OTHER NUMBERS I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY MEAN, SO SOMEONE HELP ME OUT!!!. T…HANKS; REGGIE B.. The first digit is the decade, the second is the year, the third is the car line, the fourth tells you what system the part is for. E is an engine part, B is a body part, F is a fuel system part, etc.. with all factory replacement parts having a Z as the fourth digit. 6015 is what's called the group number. This means that it is some kind of an engine block. 9510 is a carb, 9425 is an intake manifold, etc... and the last one or two digits tell you how many times the original design of the part has been changed.. The number given as an example is not an actual casting number that Ford used, since they didn't start using double digit design level change designations until the 70s, but, if it were a real number, it would be telling you that this is the first change of the second design of an engine block that was originally designed for use in a 1962 Falcon.

Answer . \nDon't think the VIN will do you any good for the color. Some locations for paint code. The radiator support on the top of it. Drivers side door post in the front door opening. Some have a tag on the support board in the trunk over the spare tire.
Does this help? . Maybe this will help you. I hope so.\n. \nhttp://www.migweb.co.uk/forums/vauxhall_archive/t-204070.html\n. \n. \n. \n. \nFriPilot
You have to look on the side of the block behind the starter. Use of a mirror and flashlight makes this an easier task to perform.
2852682 there are many different ways to decode things for example: a=1, b=2, c=3, d=4, e=5, f=6, etc.' if it is more tricky, you have to find patterns, and decode it that way: 278= and so you see, some are simple, and some are much more complicated. thanks for viewing : >
Answer . behind the distrubitor cap. Try behind the starter mount location. this is where i find most block castings no.
1950's Ford engine plant, assembly date and inspection codes are generally stamped on a machined surface at the front end of the engine block. Example: 4-78NC from an MEL block 410cid (Edsel E475) 4= Lima engine plant 7= 1957 8= August, while O=October, A=November and B=December N= 13th …day of month (I's are skipped, 26th-31st are inverted A thru F) C= inspector i.d. Other engine plant codes: 1=Cleveland engine plant #1 2=Cleveland engine plant #2 3=Dearborn engine plant On FE blocks, look for the codes on the vertical machined block face just outboard and slightly above the right-side water pump/engine block interface. On early MEL blocks, the numbers can be found on an upward-facing machined surface just above the left water pump/engine block interface. Some later MEL blocks, including all service replacements assembled after February 7, 1958, have the code stamped on the right rear portion of the oil pan rail. On Y-block engines, look for the code in the upward-facing surface at the center of the cylinder block at the push-rod cover to cylinder block mounting surface. 223cid six cylinders have the codes stamped into the front left corner of the engine block, facing outboard, directly below the cylinder head surface. Later 1958 MEL blocks have their numbers stamped into the aft vertical machined surface of the engine block, instead of the front. 1959 and later FE block engine codes are stamped on a vertical surface just forward of the dipstick on the driver's side. Look for a jutting surface on the block just below and forward of the lower forward corner of the left exhaust manifold. Starting in 1960 the code took the following form: Example: 4-1G20J from a 6-cylinder 170cid Comet (which originally was intended to be an Edsel model) 4= Lima engine plant 1= 1961 G= July (I's are skipped) 20= 20th day of month (this could be a single digit for days 1 through 9) J= inspector i.d. Now, just *which* engine codes are we looking for? (MORE)
Answer . Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem most auto parts stores will do this free. ==. You can buy an inexpensive OBD scanner for $50 or so on Amazon. Plug it in, read out the codes, and Google them.

You can decode an identification number on a trailer by knowing the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for insurance, registration, or production code purposes. The VIN can also be decoded using an authorized website by inputting the Vehicle Identification Number to identify the place, company and …year of manufacture, safety braking, body type and engine chassis.

you need the date code on the side of the block it will be a series of numbers and letters first its the month, then day, then year
The Vehicle Identification Number was originally described in ISO Standard 3779 in February 1977 and last revised in 1983. The ISO-VIN was designed to identify motor vehicles, trailers, motorcycles and mopeds and consists of several parts described below. How to read a VIN 1st character- Identi…fies the country in which the vehicle was manufactured. For example: U.S.A.(1or 4), Canada(2), Mexico(3), Japan(J), Korea(K), England(S), Germany(W), Italy(Z) 2nd character- Identifies the manufacturer. For example; Audi(A), BMW(B), Buick(4), Cadillac(6), Chevrolet(1), Chrysler(C), Dodge(B), Ford(F), GM Canada(7), General Motors(G), Honda(H), Jaquar(A), Lincoln(L), Mercedes Benz(D), Mercury(M), Nissan(N), Oldsmobile(3), Pontiac(2or5), Plymouth(P), Saturn(8), Toyota(T), VW(V), Volvo(V). 3rd character- Identifies vehicle type or manufacturing division. 4th to 8th characters- VDS - Vehicle Descriptor Section. These 5 characters occupy positions 4 through 8 of the VIN and may be used by the manufacturer to identify attributes of the vehicle. Identifies vehicle features such as body style, engine type, model, series, etc. 9th Character - The check digit "character or digit 9" in the sequence of a vehicle identification number (VIN) built beginning with model year 1981 (when the 17 character digit format was established) can best be described as identifying the VIN accuracy. A check digit shall be part of each vin (since 1981) and shall appear in position nine (9) of the VIN on the vehicle and on any transfer documents containing the vin prepared by the manufacturer to be given to the first owner for purposes other than resale. Thus, the vins of any two vehicles manufactured within a 30 year period shall not be identical. The check digit means a single number or letter "x" used to verify the accuracy of the transcription of the vehicle identification number. After all other characters in the VIN have been determined by the manufacturer the check digit is calculated by carrying out a mathematical computation specified. This is based on vin position, sample vin, assigned value code, weight factor and multiply assigned value times weight factors. The values are added and the total is divided by 11. The remainder is the check digit number. The correct numeric remainder - zero through nine (0-9) will appear. However, if the remainder is 10 the letter "X" is used to designate the check digit value/number. 10th character- Identifies the model year. For example: 1988(J), 1989(K), 1990(L), 1991(M), 1992(N), 1993(P), 1994(R), 1995(S), 1996(T), 1997(V), 1998(W), 1999(X), 2000(Y)------2001(1), 2002(2), 2003(3), 2004(4), 2005(5), 2006(6), 2007(7), 2008(8) 11th character- Identifies the assembly plant for the vehicle. 12th to 17th characters- VIS - Vehicle Identifier Section. The last 8 characters of the VIN are used for the identification a of specific vehicle. The last four characters shall always be numeric. Identifies the sequence of the vehicle for production as it rolled off the manufacturers assembly line. (MORE)

A VIN or Vehicle Identifiaction number is different for every single car. The first 3 letters are the manufacturers world code. For Instance, Skoda is TMB and Land Rover SAL. Also, the last 6 digits are unique to the car that it is on and no other model and variation will have that combination of th…e last 6 digits. The other digits (numbers and letters) are different from car maker to car maker. They will consist of model (Mondeo, Vectra, A6); Variation (Mondeo Ghia, Vectra SRi, A6 Quattro); engine size and fuel. (MORE)

This casting goes to 80-84 Chevy. It is a V6 3.8 litre engine. Commonly found in Malibus of that year and or El Camino's or OMC marine motors.
Chevrolet began offering a 572-cubic-inch (9.4 L) "crate motor" in 2003 which produced 720 hp (537 kW) and 685 lbÂ·ft (929 NÂ·m) of torque, and more recently a 620 hp (462 kW) / 650 lbÂ·ft (881 NÂ·m) version capable of running on 93 octane street gasoline.
Post the numbers/letters on the smooth pad just below the front of the passengers side cylinder head and I'll tell you.
More than likely due to the heat generated. why are engine blocks maid of cast iron
I know only about the first symbol and, the most obvious, the 2 last symbols. As for the last 2 - it's the originating country. The first letter - if it's 'E', it's most likely means 'express'. If 'L' - it's a letter. Still have to get to know what 'R' means.

Most of those engines were drilled for either starter bolt pattern. What matters is that you get the right starter for the size flywheel you're using. The 153 tooth and the 168 tooth require their own starter nose cone. Except for the aftermarket gear reduction starters which are usually drilled for… either flywheel. (MORE)
You don't decode the serial, you decode the date code stamped on the barrel starting in 1921. If you have something before that you need a model/serial to date it. Check the manufactured date link on the Remington Society of America for details.

You finish the comic strip then it will say 4 nunmbers on it enter those on the locker and it will open. (Click the big pile of scrap that comes out when you open it)
Yes, you can. count to the 10th digit. If it's a number than that the year of the car. For example 10th digit is 1, then it's a 2001 and so on. If it's a letter like T then it's a 1996. Call the any salvage yards and give them the letter of 10 th digit. They will tell you what year is it.
With Ford, they began using this form of block casting in the late 1950's. They assigned each decade a letter which begins the casting number. 1950 began the coding with letter 'B'. Each subsequent decade received the following letter. The first number after the first letter is the year of that deca…de in which the part was modeled for. This means that your block casting number D8VE-6015-ASA is for a: D = 1970's 8= 1978 V = the model is a Lincoln E = the part is an engine component (or, in this case, an engine) 6015 = it is an engine base assembly piece (or, again, the actual engine) ASA = the engineering version In conclusion, this casting number tells you that the part (the engine) is for a 1978 Lincoln Mark V continental. The engineering number tells us that it is a Ford 400 cu in, 6.6 L engine. (MORE)
That would be the first year 348 engine, 1958. The 3732811 block was used only for that model year. It came in passenger cars and was available with 250, 280 or 315 HP.

Decoding an Arctic Cat vin number is used to generally discover when the product was made. One could do this by taking the last few digits of their vin number and use the manual to decode it.
327, 235 hp. It was built on September 20, 1969 in Flint Michigan, and was designated to be in front of a powerglide in a full size car.
It's prime purpose is to decode the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of a Dodge make / model of car. The VIN is used for selling or buying purposes to make sure your car hasn't been 'tweaked' to look better / rarer than it actually is.
To decode a vin number you need to know what each section means. the first three characters tell you where the car was made, characters 4 through 8 tells you about the car. It tells you a decription of it. Digit 9 is a check number to detect fake vin numbers. Position 10 tells you the year it was ma…de. The rest of the numbers are your production numbers. (MORE)
