  • 6 cylinder engine identification

    I have a 6 cylinder engine I was told was a Studebaker engine. I searched the head casting # 529279 and the only reference I saw was to a Studebaker. I have a number from the top front of the block # II2G057 or II26057 and a number on the intake# 532337-10. If anyone recognizes any of these numbers any help to identify this engine would be greatly appreciated.

        This engine is in a non-Studebaker vehicle and we don't need the engine if anyone is in need of it.

              Nope, it would be green or turquoise - I can never remember when the change happened. [:I]

                  A Red Engine would indicate someone at some time in it's life, did some work on it, maybe a rebuild.

                  It would have been Olive Green.

                  Mark, the [u]'56 & '57</u> 185 c.i. 6 Cyl., the Truck 245 Big 6, and the V-8's would be the only one's with turquoise Green paint.

                  It's a Champion 169, sometimes called a 170, small flathead 6.
