« on: December 09, 2008, 11:30:14 PM »
I'm restoring a cs 5-1 and am wondering if someone can tell me anything about my engine (age and so on). The number on the plate is : 97775.1R3.
thanks Ralph

That would suggest a post '51 engine. Is that all the info on the plate ?

I would make that build number 9777 5/1 radiator version 1953.  And sure someone will correct if that is wrong.
