Re: Early Tin Motor?
Are you sure it doesn't have CE6 above the 554?toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
As far as I know the serial numbers were contiguous for the production CoBra engines starting at CE6-100. They switched to CE7- at 5587 and dropped the CE7 for a straight number at 22000.
The military engines, before car production use a different number set and as far as I know started with CE2 then switched to CE3 and CE4 etc. Not sure if they started over on the numbers each year because I haven't seen enough WW2 CoBra engines to form an opinion.
There were enough variations of the engine and crankcase it may be for a different application, I know ThermoKing and some other companies that bought the Crosley engine used their own serial numbers.
Anyone else got any ideas for Mike?
