Hi my name is Francisco,

I'm from the city of Trujillo in Peru (South America)
I have an M5 C2 / 1946, I have a problem with finding the engine number.


The question is:
The number of the engine, is carved in the block of the same engine, or is carved in a sheet, in the block with rivets?


I hope you can help me


(excuse my bad English)

The engines for M5 pickups start at 1M-001 in 1941. There should be a flat, machined, smooth square on the block with the number stamped in. If original, it is a 170 cubic inch, six cylinder. Does it still have the Studebaker engine?

Welcome to the forum.

Very friendly for the welcome and the prompt response.

Yes everything is original, the engine, the address, etc.
The previous owner told me that he changed the engine cover, so the code apparently belongs to an engine of the same model but from the year '51 (the number that appears is: 529278 and a little lower E 4 11, so I have read (1951/04/11).

In the monoblock there is a cast number N ° 518448-4 / Z 11 18
In cabin number is:
M5 C216169
The serial number that appears on the plate at the base of the pilot's seat is:
Model: M5-13 Series N ° 16474

But I can not find the engine number anywhere.

Regards
Francisco

Sometimes a Riveted on Metal Nameplate on the Block is for a New Original Replacement Engine either New from the Studebaker Factory, or an aftermarket REBUILT Engine.

The Original Factory Engine Number Pad is at the Left Front corner near the Top of the Block.
Assuming Left Hand Drive, that would be the Drivers side.

Thanks for your contribution

I searched the part you indicated.
Apparently there was a sheet.

or the number, is carved more deeply?

I can't enlarge the picture.

Here is a thread that shows where the engine serial number is. It should be stamped into the metal, not cast.

Here is a picture of my 1950 Champion engine number, located on the top front left side of the block.
I also couldn't enlarge your pictures, but click on this one, and it will enlarge.

In the above photo, it appears that the engine serial number may have been painted over. . this will be a Machined Vertical Surface very near the top of the engine. it should be on the surface very near the alternator mounting bolt shown
