If you can get the serial # stamped in the block you can get the year here. http://www.mafca.com/data_eng_production.html



I wish my numbers were as clear as the ones in the picture you posted. The best that I can tell I got A163648 which would put it in May 1928. I guess the seller was wrong...but he admitted having very little knowledge about the engine, he is into tractors, and from what I can tell he definitely knew his stuff there. No big deal to me, A B engine would have been nice simply because it is better....but I have no need for a better engine. I would have replaced it with an A in any case if it turned out to be junk due to availability.

The top water goose neck may tell the date. 28-29 = 5.375" tall. 30-31 = 6".

Tad your transmission is a Ford model A car or pick up three speed. AA and BB had a four speed with a gate leaver on the stick to get it in reverse. They all had closed drives. I think '40 trucks went to open and so did the cars in '48 or 9.

Is your trans cast into the bell housing? if so it's got to be a really early A.

All Fords used closed drive shafts. Trucks through '39 and cars 'till '48?


I just wasn't sure if the larger trucks (AA,BB,etc...) would have still had a closed drive shaft.....not that the engine/trans are necessarily out of the same truck(or a truck at all) the axle was.

Being a doodlebug most any up draft carb would be appropriate. Easy enough to make an adapter. Most all old farm tractors used up drafts. Check your local bone yard for something that will fit.

I'm pretty sure only '28 and early '29 rim will fit your axle. The bolt circle may be the same through 34 but the pilot hole I think is smaller on yours. Here's a good place to get Ford info. http://www.fordbarn.com/forum/index.php
