    Studebaker used the letter "I" for the numeral "1".

    How about some pictures of the entire engine, particularly from the intake manifold side?

        That is a 1958 185 c.i. from a car. The 'I' is actually a '1'.
        Pic 1 is the stamped engine number at top left front of block.
        Pic 2 is the casting number on the cylinder head.

          Yup, from picture 2, you can see the spark plug. so that pegs it as a flat-head 6. So my guess is that Dwain is right.
