A little help please


Hello to all. I'm new to this forum but I'll get use to it I hope. I can't find out what the "W" stands for on my 354 Chrysler Hemi. Also I can't find out the casting numbers on two manifolds, as follows: 1874861 and 1674861. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks

The tag you refer to is usually on the rear of the block. Model 56a is an industrial engine. The short block assembly is the same as the car engine. Industrial engines usually had the same type heads as the truck engines, that is sodium filled valve stems and intake manifold heat from the cooling system rather than exhaust gas. I have acquired two industrials, a Model 56 331 ci and a Model 56a 354 ci, and both had car heads and intakes. Some industials had solid lifters and adjustable rocker arms so all industrials have rocker arm covers with exhaust rocker clearance bumps often called demples.

Just so everyone will know the rest of the numbers are as follows. On the Aluminum tag on the block, this tag is rivited to the block where th normal engine number would be, Model#Ind-56a, Type 1070-1, and the serial #200576. The tag is about 2"x3", 4 rivits hold it to the block. It has a place for a part number under the numbers but there is nothing in it. Again, Thank you so much. Fuzz

Hello Jack, you are correct. The numbers are 1674661 on both manifolds. Sorry about that. It's hard to tell the difference in a 8 and a 6. The numbers at the valley pan are (passenger side) W 516 8--on the driver side: 1613829 7 W7 D.N. I'm pretty sure I've got the numbers right on that. Now for one more. Can I use the 392 heads on this block? I've searched and I believe the responce was yes. Am I correct? I have the 392 4 blb. intake that goes with it. I do thank all of you for helping me find out what I've got.

The easy answer is NO! & yes with difficulty, depending on a few things. You can bolt the heads on but no one piece premanufactured intake would fit. the 392 is a raised block engine that the heads were designed to use low deck intakes. On a low deck block the 392 heads are too close together, but....You could use a twin log intake or an unassembled U-Fab type intake that would have to be welded up for your application. the other problem is the W/P & or crossover. If your engine has the small '55 & up timing cover & 4 leg W/P it wouldn't fit. You'd have to use a Chevy or 392 W/P, & then have a custom water crossover made because the water outlets on the heads will be too close together.

Opps! wrong numbers on the manifolds

Upon closer examination, and with a good light the numbers on the manifolds are as follows. #1874661 with a #3 below it. the other is 1874661 with a #2 below it. I hope that helps. Thanks

My book does not show a casting #1874661, However it does show a casting #1674661, same casting number for both sides with different part numbers (right side has has a hole for the choke tube).
They are from a 1957-1958 Chrysler without the 300 engine.

The W mark on your block means it was cast at the Chrysler foundary in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Not necessarly a truck block. The production serial number on the flat at the fron edge of the lifter valley tells the original application for the block. If it's a passenger car the number will have a prefix of NE56 for New Yorker, CE56 for Imperial, 3NE56 for 300, WE56 for Windsor (polyshere heads), or, if it's a truck a prefix like VT. The actual casting and dated numbers are along the side of the lifter valley on the top edge of the block deck. If the heads are on the block you can't see the casting and date numbers

1st off...The CWC Foundry is in Muskegon, Mich, Leo's book is wrong on that. The casting number can be seen with the head on, but not with the intake on. Is between the head & the valley cover, passenger side in the rear.

The W seems to be found on truck blocks, but no firm data on that.
