No engine serial number

Postby muleboss » Tue Oct 22, 2013 11:22 am

I have a cub engine that does not have a serial number.
Known about engine- Mfg 9-11-K
Firing order numbers very crude. Could probably not read first 2 numbers if I did not know what they are.

Casting number on block-355741 R6
# 2 stamped in block above 3rd pan bolt on left side (as sitting on tractor)
Letter "L" just left of oil filler (dipstick)
Front cover- 651 674 R1
Oil pump cover- 251398 R1----L IH 7

I do not know what year this was suppost to come from.
I bought it in a pile of a tractor that was in many pieces.
Was told the engine had been replaced and this was original to tractor.
Can not tell you any other parts numbers from tractor as it was parts and I do not know which ones they are.

Question is, Why no serial number on engine.
Thanks Bob

Don't know the answer.

I have a NOS engine block, Casting code 5-16-X, with no serial number. This one came from someone who purchased several crated NOS engines from military surplus.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Engines with no SN's are replacement blocks from IH. Only complete engines were stamped with a SN. Your engine was replaced at some time in the past, with the internals swapped over.

There are many around, here are two that were at last years OK Cubfest.

Raymond, Thanks for the answer. That would mean that cub has had 3 different engines.
