I have a '48 M-16 and I had assumed that it was 226ci engine. I found what the engine number should be in the book, but the block says something different. The number was H4I8806 or maybe it was H418806. Anyway the book says it should start with 3m...something. Anyone have an idea? I'm wondering if it was a replacement block or...? I dunno. Its not the casting number either. Its stamped in the machined pad on the top left corner in the front of the block. Also what are the differences between the 245ci and the 226ci? From what I gather they are the same except for the cranks. The 245 has a longer stroke. Thanks.

Someone has replaced the original engine with one out of a 1950 Commander. Same displacement as the original at 245 c.i.

Dick,

The original engine would have been 226 CID as the 245 was not offered until 1949 when Studebaker went to the R series trucks (hence the "A" designation).

I believe that at the beginning of the 1949 truck production, the 226 Commander engine was available in the larger trucks (2R16,2R17) and not the pickups. During the 1949 model year, the engine was enlarged to 245.6 resulting in models 2R16A and 2R17A. I believe that it was the 1951 models before the 245 was available in light trucks/pickups.
