hi my name is tim. i just found this place and its great. a wealth of info. i hope some one here can help me. i receintly bought a pile of hemi and poly engines. i have be able to i.d. all except one. the casting number is 1739429-3, which i believe is a 1957 325 poly. however the serial number is a little weird. it is wer 632. i have search every book i have and every web site and i can not find out what "wer" means. also didnt every engine begin with 1001 as a production number. this is only 632. i have pics of this but im not sure how to up load here. any info is appreciated. thanks.
Guess i left out...the casting # is a Dodge block. All block codes with WE that I've seen are Chrysler Polys. Lists probably are incomplete. On another Forum a guy posted a Chrysler with a code that starts with Z, another mystery.timshemi wrote:thanks for the info, but this is definatly a dodge block, crank, and rods.

I've run into a few of those "Z-code" hemis before,
The Z-coded engines seem to have been used
in Heavy-Duty - ie - 10 ton and up, Dodge and
Fargo trucks - mostly in dump truck and highway
