49 Super six Brougham
49 Commodore Eight Convertible
The only Hash 6 cyl. cars I have see, either had 308 or swb cars with the 202's. If that is fact ( just guessing) Then any 262's provided after 54 would have been for replacement in stepdowns. Therefor would have the early crank? I don't have any parts books after 54 or I could check that out.
The reason I am asking is because I am trying to help a guy that has a 53 with a 55 engine that has a cracked 262 head. It's 100 miles away, so I can't peek under the hood to see if the block has the reinforcement rib above the pan flange. I asked him, but haven't heard from him yet. Last time I saw the car was a couple years ago and I noticed the serial number pad on the drivers side. I didn't notice the 262 head. I had assumed it was a 308, but???
