Thread: Serial number question

  1. #1

    Default Serial number question

    I have a project 29 JD . The engine case is stamped 29 JC . What does the C stand for ? Ive been told commercial ? Maybe the stamper was moonlighting at Miller Brewing Co.

    You were told correct information. C = commercial
    Mark have been a package truck, etc.
    A JC would be a 61", low compression, generator equipped, and probably with a large rear wheel sprocket.
    Is it a JC or a JDC? (61" vs 74")

    It is a JC . So I have a 61”. I’ll check the rear sprocket also. I’ve done many projects and they have all been assembled when I bought them so I could take a bunch of pictures through the disassembly. This one is in box’s and I’m finding I have a challenge on my hands . Loving every minute of it! Thanks

    Well, the VIN indicates that it's a 61" but all you have to do on 1924 and up cases is use 74" flywheels, cylinders, and a few other small bits and it's a 74"

    Is there a difference between the 61" and 74" rod lengths?

    Not from 24 or 25 up. I'd have to look in my notes to verify which year.
    There were 74" specific rods for early 74's. 1921-24? non DCA motors.
