  • Truck Production Order Question

    We got the build sheet from the Studebaker NM yesterday and after looking at it for a while I have deciphered most of it but the Engine number is listed as 5E 162 and I have no idea what this means, V8, I6? Anyone know what these numbers might mean?

    Thanks

    Dan,

    5E is a heavy duty 259. Below are the codes:

    1E - 170/185
    3E - 259
    4E - 245
    5E - 259 (Heavy duty)
    6E - 289 (Heavy duty)
    7E - 289

    All heavy duty engines should have a cloverleaf stamped on the engine boss.

            Thanks guys, so should the serial number stamped on the block start with a "E" or "V" since it is a 259 truck engine?

                The serial number stamped on the block should be 5E 162 if it is still the same engine that originally came with the truck.
