The engine number shown on my data plate is 120848 which is for 119343 dod 12th Feb. However the actual engine block is 121233 so it was swapped out at some point soon after the data plates were stamped - maybe a fault before delivery. Hopes this helps to pin down your number.

Hi Buddy!

the delta on this day was about 1.000...
In my list I have confirmed (Frame/Engine/ DoD):

118952 - 119854 - 2-11
119170 - 120191 - 2-12
119284 - 120307 - 2-12
119343 - 120846 - 2-12
119462 - 120960 - 2-13

Where did you get the info on 120310 and 120574 engines? Do you have a matching frame no for these?

I know Barry is focused on the Slat Grille blocks but don't forget there was another 1500 jeeps in the 505 Contract.

The 505 contract jeeps had the pressed grille and whatever updates that were being done to the companion USMC contracts per the original Canadian contract specs. A portion of these also remained in Canada while the rest were shipped overseas.

I only state this because new readers may not realize there is another Canadian contract besides the one in this thread when it comes to Canadian jeep contracts.
