262 engine in a 1951 commodore 6A , door tag 104968,  uncertain if it is original engine, block cast # 304298 CWC 4 and head cast # is 304621 2 CWC B121
any info one can decipher from these #'s
I have looked online under various vin and engine cast decoders, info  etc, but did not come across any info that had these #'s

    The engine serial number will match what's on the A pillar, if it is the original engine. The engine serial number is stamped on the right side of the block, just forward of the exhaust manifold.

    Your cylinder head was cast on Feb. 12, 1951. (B121). There will be a similar date code just above the casting number on the block.

    thanks ill look again , I bet the oil filter housing blocked the upper casting numbers on the block, as I didn't even see them

    The date code on the block, is just below the distributor, and hard to see. I usually use a small mirror.

    not that it really matters,  but I did get the rest of the #'s off the block etc, and it appears that it is the original engine, just pretty awesome as its 70 some years old and the original.
    262 engine door tag 104968, block cast # C141 304298 CWC 4 and head cast # is 304621 2 CWC B121, head number in from of exhaust manifold is 104968, same as door tag. thanks for the insight.
