  • Other: Engine Identification

    I have been consulting the info compiled by Skip Lackie from parts books, service letters, and other documentation and can't find my engine there are anywhere else. The guy who built my R2 3/4 ton says it's a Studebaker 250 cu in. It is a V8 engine. The number I found on the flat on the front to the block drivers side near the oil filter is V496869. On the rear of the engine is another number 154153 2 10. Any ideas, please?

    Is your engine supercharged (R2). Or is your truck a 3/4 ton 2r?

      The V8 engine table lists STARTING serial numbers for each year. Yours is a 259 from a 1960 Lark.

            Most know the following, but not everyone. The first (leftmost) digit (letter) of Studebaker's V8 engine number designates the displacement: V = 259, P = 289. There is one exception to this rule: In 1955 the largest engine was a 259 and its engine number started with a P.

              That's too many numbers to be found on the back of the engine. I suspect it is actually on the bell housing perhaps? Any chance of getting a photo?
