Mystery casting number

Postby George Willer » Sat Dec 13, 2003 2:23 pm

Marilyn's new Cub has a casting number (inverted) on the manifold. I haven't ever noticed a number on a manifold before. The number is very nearly a year newer than the engine the manifold is mounted on. 4-14-R (April 14,1948)

The number on the engine indicates it is an early '47. (April 19, 1947)

Were the casting numbers only on replacements? Does anyone have such a (any) number on their Cub's manifold? If so, does the code closely match those on other castings?

:shock: Yes George, My 48 has one, it's 10-1 B I think the last letter is or it could be an 8 . It's upside down as you said. Never paid any attention to it before. "Jack"

Jack, that's probably an 'R' for 48. my 50 with a 54 block does not have one. i'll check the 48.
