    On the front of your engine, just on the driver's side and forward of the oil fill pipe is a machined pad. Stamped into this pad is combination of letters and numbers. Post them here. Someone will interpret it for you.

    [Edit] mea culpa, I didn't read far enough before posting, I guess.

      OR, look it up right here in the Tech tips and Spec's and data link on the home page of this website:

      http://www.studebakerdriversclub.com/V8EngineID.asp

      It looks like a 1964 date coded engine number, but are you real sure that is correct, something does not match up here. [:0]

      The 6 and the J could not be right. The first letter should be a "V" or "P". If it were a J, it would have to have a T or TS following it and then another Letter before the numbers. [:0] [?]

      The other way to I.D it is:
      (1) check in a spark plug hole for a dished piston, you can see it with a light when one is up, or feel it with a pencil, indicating a Std. non-jet thrust 289.
      If it has flat top pistons, it is MOST LIKELY a 259.

      (2) look for an oil filter base or mounting pad on the right side, rear of the block, telling us it IS a late '62-'64 block.
