I know it is a long shot, but does anyone have my engine number MB537738? The number is listed on my title, but sadly it was swapped for a Kaiser. I don't have one to trade, but would be willing to buy it back if it was realistically priced.

I'm looking for a Willys block with a casting date of either late May or really early June of 1944. I have a 7-5 cast dated Willys engine in mine and am willing to trade it or sell it if I can find one that I can use.

Mike, can you please delete all my engine posts? I will be checking the barn once the weather improves and repost an accurate list of what I have left. Many of mine were sold during the recession. Thanks.
