60 Pan Case Part Numbers

#1

Post by craig60pan » Thu Feb 21, 2008 2:01 am

I finally got around to splitting the cases on my 60 pan and I don't see these part numbers in any of my parts books
left side 24547-55 (date stamp riveted on 7/59)
right side 24563-58 (date stamp riveted on 6/59)
Both also have a E in a circle below the part numbers
The cases have matching belly numbers
Any ideas?

Those are sixty cases and you most likly will never find casting part numbers in the book. Whats the belly numbers. I've always figured that the first fifty percent of all casting dates will be the the year before. Bob

Craig

Like Bob said, the numbers that are cast into the parts are usually not the part number from the spare parts catalog. They generally indicate a blueprint number used by the foundry, the numbers to the left of the dash in the belly number will tell you what year the castings went through the machine shop before going to the production line.
