I was scrutinizing the Lemans Crosley pictures..Looking at the engine I see it has the Crosley script.. But it has four welch plugs? Should only have two, one either side of thermostat housing. Only blocks I know to have four welch plugs are the Homelite/Bearcat Big Blocks [Big bore 2.750]. Then I look at the casting number 308682 [Crosley engine tree,http://crosleyautoclub.com/EngineTree/Crosley_Eng_Tree-3.html .. So its a big Block [2.750 bore] Fageol/Crofton with four plugs And Crosley script; if this is the original block [maybe] then Crosley had it in 1950 when they built the engine.   https://hymanltd.com/vehicles/6610-1951-crosley-lemans-race-car/
