Can anyone tell me what the engine is in my 53 studebaker truck? The number is 527644. It is located in the front of the engine to the left of the oil on passenger side and it is stamped. Thanks.

Judging by the number I would guess the motor in question is a six? If so the tech tips section of this site's home page lists this as follows:
527644 1950 Champion (9G) 170"

My truch is a 1953 c cab. I was missing one number so the number on the block in the front is 4527644. If anyone can tell me the ci of this I would be very appreciative.

That number doesn't cross to anything listed on the SDC 6 cylinder engine number page...

If it is the original engine, it should begin with a 1R, 2R, 3R, 4R, or 6R

I could understand it if the '4' was really an 'H', or if the '5' was really an 'R'. Look for the casting number on the distributor side of the engine block. That will help narrow it down a little. A 1953 engine should be 524807 or 523140

Jeremy, you are looking at a RAISED casting number, with a 4 for shift or machine # in front of it. Serial numbers are never raised, always stamped after casting. That way they can change on each casting made in the die. That sounds like the casting number of a '51-'54 Commander 232 V-8 block. Just give us the STAMPED engine number from the machined pad at the driver's side front corner of the block next to the filler pipe, if it's a V-8 conversion or left side uppper, front on small and large 6's. Hope this helps, Rich.

I totally missed that! Good catch Rich!
Jeremy, I assumed you have a pickup. Is this a bigger truck?
