Any numbers that are cast into the housings are usually only for the manufacturer and do not answer you queries. They relate to the un-machined casting and any reference numbers that you will be interested in will be stamped into the castings. There are exceptions to that and it is often cylinder heads where they have different ones for High and low compression or Altitude, but not all engines are marked like this, it does vary greatly....John(UK)

I got told off by someone on the massey forum over foundary casting marks! So be easy on me Mikey!! So here is a couple guesses... An early LP? Would 'x' be- experimental? Or all blocks were the same? HF just picked one off a pallet to make into an LP? Or a boring Roman numeral ten?- the benchmark of the fellow that was pouring the castings that day?
Pick your poison. I bet even 15 years ago there would be enough old Continental staffers left to answer all these questions... wonder if there is a Continental website or forum with these retired guys on there?????
How's the weather down there?
