That appears to be a flat head ford engine.  It has the two water hoses from the heads to radiator, the spark plug wires go forward to the distributor on the front of engine and the yellow piece lower front is one of two water pump/motor supports. (One on each side). time line would about 1932 ? until 1953.

Keep trying that number! They probably took the weekend off but I'm sure someone will get back to you. You know you have to be using a dial phone for that number don't you?

Thanks.  The heads didn't look right to me for a Ford.  I guess the heads changed a little over the years.  Glad you could clear that up for me.

that is definitely a flat head ford. it would be a 1948 or earlier. ford moved that radiator hose to the front of the head in 1949. those engines was hard to keep cool if ran hard. i ran them in race cars in the early 60s i would like to have one in a hotrod today but probably will never be able to afford one.

It seems like most of them have been found and put to use.  Hard to find one at reasonable price.  I hear there's one on Vancouver Island that's not doing anything.   :D  Maybe they'd take a nice small block chevy in trade.   ;)
