  • 6 cylinder engine ID

    New member, first post. I'm just getting to know our new
    63 Lark Daytona convertible, and I've got a question on the
    engine ID. From all the literature I have, the engine number
    should be S-xxxxx, but the block is stamped 1E-24068. I assume
    this is not the correct engine, and is a truck engine, but from what?
    What are the differences, and is it a good or bad thing in terms
    of the car's value?

    Also, the engine has no oil filter at all. I'd appreciate any
    suggestions on the best route to take to fit one to this engine.
    A partial flow, I assume? Thanks

    According to the technical data on the homepage of this site:
    1E 24068 1960 5E Series Commercial 170.

    It is not unusual for a Studebaker of this vintage to have no oil filter. In fact it's unusual for them to be there at all. I have a 1962 289 V8 where the (aftermarket) oil filter is mounted on the TOP of the motor. What a mess! I have another with the FRAHM toilet paper filter mounted on the wheelwell. There are aftermarket kits oriented to your particular needs.

    The only way to tell what engine the car originally had is to order the build sheet from the museum. This will tell you what options were ordered, the engine, etc... Not expensive and well worth the pennies involved.

    It's possible that the original engine blew it's headgasket and the owner replaced it with this one. as far as value... Well that's a toughie. A six isn't going to be very popular. They're just... dull. It will depend on what, or more precicely whom, is the market you're aiming to sell to.

    By the way, nice car![8D]

      I saw that chart, but I noticed that it only goes to 1960. By the
      range of 1E engine numbers used in previous years, I'm extrapolating
      that this motor is from a 62 or 63 truck, whatever that would be.
      (7E, maybe?)

      As for the dull six, that was a plus for us, we preferred it. Simple and basic.
      Several of our other cars are big MoPars, including two
      440's and one Hemi, and we find that we don't use and enjoy them
      nearly as much as our little Rambler American convertible.
      That's why we got the Stude - it's a lot like that. I think we're gonna like it.

        That engine # is for a 1962 (7E series) truck. It's a pre-full-flo OHV 170cu.in engine.
