So far this is what I have. The nameplate is virtually unreadable. I am trying to identify the engine in order to identify the starter for replacement. FROM NAME PLATE The Yale & Towne Mfg Co Philadelphia Pennsylvania MODEL ?? -1OU ?? SERIAL 54 097 POWER IND-3?0-104 Pounds Center Height 4275 21 ? 4000 24 ? 3750 27 ? 3500 30 ? TWO STAMPS ON HEAD A 1 E5 50 <-- could be a date like 1.5.50 P 1405849-3 TWO STAMPS ON BLOCK T3Co 1I23I77 <-- 1I is really ?I T3C.1I23I77 or T334*II0C7* or T3C6*I23I77 543097 Engine may be a 218 Plymouth flathead 6 dated 1/5/1950 or 6 cylinder gas Continental engine model F226 seems likely Looking for some suggestions about how to track down a the right starter. Thanks!
i have a 1950 plymouth with the original 218 in it. original transmission. The old 218 has just been falling apart. it seems like everything i do just creates a new problem. pretty sure the guy that had it before me build the engine with JB weld. i'm ready to just drop in another motor so i can DRIVE already. i came across a smoking deal on a strong running flathead. the guy says it's a 201 out of a '36 plymouth. I don't think i've even heard of a 201. i know i can interchange with a 230 as long as the transmission doesn't have the overdrive, from what i recall reading. does anyone know if a 201 would be a drop in and go on a 50 without having to change motor mounts or anything else? my skill level is pretty low but i've been able to figure things out. welding anything isn't an option for me. i could pay someone to do that for me but i'm trying to look for something i can do myself. i like the idea of being able to say " i did that"... even if i'm taking the easy road. thanks. -phillip
