Hi, Scott -


The table might give an inaccurate impression, depending how one interprets it.


For BJ8s:  the first chassis number (25315) was not the first car Phase 1 car built, and no effort was made to make the engine serial numbers increase in sequence with the chassis numbers.  

Chassis 25315 got engine 29K/RU/H571.

The lowest engine serial number (29K/RU/H101) went into chassis 25331.

The last Phase 1 car (25704) got engine 29K/RU/H1174


The first Phase 2 car (25705) got engine 29K/U/H1713 (no overdrive)

The last BJ8 built (43026) got engine 29K/RU/H17504.

The highest engine serial number (29K/RU/H17631) did go into the last BJ8 built on the production line (43000).


When dealing with BMC and serial numbers, it seems nothing was nice and neat.

Hello Mitch and Seasons Greetings.  

The attached files may help a little but the casting numbers are not related to sequential engine production.

How do you ID an engine block/or head……that does not have an ID tag?

Do the engine block casting numbers mean anything?
