Re: [FWDLK] 57 341 Block Casting Date Question



I never tried to decipher the casting date, Dan, BUT DeSoto used the “letter I” instead of the “number 1” for all 1957 DeSotos, but it is definitely intended to be a “one”.  SO, the motor number is S26-one-nine-zero-four-seven, regardless of the shape of the figures.

 

BTW, S26-18702 (with a number very close to yours) was installed in a car built on 3-25-1957.

Hello, fellow Forward Lookers.

 

I’m trying to decipher the casting date on a 57 DeSoto block.

 

It is stamped at the front top with S26-I9047  (an I, not a 1). So it’s a 1957 341 hemi.

 

On the driver’s side next to the valley cover are the cast digits 3 27 6

 

Are these the block casting date numbers? How to decipher? If they aren’t indicative of the casting date, where is date on block?

 

Thanks — Dan in Seattle
