  • Engine: Type of engine

    I have a V8 engine with an engine number E629. I think the engine is a 259. What year would the block have been cast and what vehicles would the engine been used.

    Not familiar with just an E prefix. A 2E629 would be a 1955 224" truck block.

      As Jack said, a number followed by an E would be a truck engine. Look more carefully at the engine serial number boss and then look here:

        Is a 224 a V8. The engine on my car looks like a 259. The only numbers on the engine are E 629.

          The 224 and the 259 are the same casting, the 224 has a short throw on the crank.

            Is the engine number cast in the block on the right front of engine or stamped by the distributor?

              It is stamped next to the fuel pump stack.

                I do not think that we have the engine type/year/displacement identified yet.
                The engine number is not a cast number. It is always stamped.
                On early 232s it is by the distributor. On all of the rest, it is stamped on a pad on the top surface of the block at the left front of the engine (right looking under the hood.

                  Here is our V8 Engine I.D. Page from this Website, if you scan to the bottom you will see a Picture of where to look and all the info needed to decode the Serial Number.

                  That is IF it has a Factory Serial Number from a original Production Car, and not a Factory replacement Engine.
