sounds about right for early '81 maybe?

my '81 40 shows 2F 538080, built 5/81. I bought the rig new so I know it's original, reading about 195k. Most of those motors went into 60's I'm sure as the u.s. only imported a few thousand 40's in '81
oops, that was for spanky

stupid virgin rookie mistake, sorry

Engine ID number

Specter Off Road has some of this data in their Support - FAQ section.
They have some info on engine number on F engines 1969-1974, and early 2F engines 1975-1978

http://www.sor.com/2fengine.html

Here are my 2 Trucks info:

FJ60-USA (door jam plate says April 1984)
Original engine block number = 2F 822650

FJ60-USA (door jam plate says November 1983) It is titled as a 1984 because of the vin #. I think this is because the production date is late in the year.
NOT original engine block number = 2F 529999

I think this is a great database you are putting together. If possible when you are done could you send me a copy and put it here somewhere permanent.

IF you have a lead I would like to know the year of my replacement engine.

Good luck.

Believe I have a 9/76 build. No plates anywhere, but

Frame VIN# FJ40-232040
Engine# 2F-114720

The engine has a huge hole in the block though, so have another engine I am trying to figure out where it came from. VIN 2F-534254. Maybe an early model FJ60. Anyone?

Thanks,
Mark

1972 with a 2F motor - serial # question

Forum is great, I plan on absorbing all info I can possibly handle so I can bore non-FJ owners at every opportunity. This is my first post so hopefully I don't make a grave rookie error . If I did, please let me know what it was so I can toe the line.

Here goes: 1972 FJ40-137491, frame and plate at drivers side door match. Motor is immaculate, block has glossy black paint, eat off valve cover, etc. No smoke, starts every time w/o any choke. It is a 2F which I know makes it right off the bat not the original motor. The serial says 2F-877067 and from everything I am reading in these threads, no one's serial even approaches this high of a number.

What's the deal? Counterfeit Chinese motor? Candid camera gag? If it helps, drivers side number on block is 61014 which I believe means the motor was produced October 14th, 1976.

Appreciate the help, especially to a South Floridian :flamingo:

The 61014 is the casting number or part number of the block. Date code is on drivers side, near the back.
61014 is the late 2F block.

FWIW, there is a block sitting here w/ casting date of Jan. 87, serial number is 877125.
Too bad this one has a rod sticking out the side.

Right ok, so it's a replacement block that explains the appearance of it. Much respect to you guys, I'll keep reading up and learning. Still green here, but you may want to have that rod sticking out of your block checked by the experts at the local Jiffy Lube:D
