Thank you for your response. I have looked at some charts in the site you suggested and have to admit I am having a bit of a problem putting them together. Based on the P 2 C date related number it makes that engine a 1959 model but the stamped serial number at the top of the block S171621 seems to be indicative of 1962. Also, according some other discussions I have read, and as cdmn has pointed out in his reply, the FL on the head seems to be pointing to like 1963. Is it possible that this engine is not from a tractor and maybe like an industrial engine or something? Is that something we can tell by the numbers we have available? Or maybe the head is not orginal to the block?

Duane, not uncommon for Major's to be repowered with industrial Fordson engines.Another posibility could be that you have a later Ebro engine in your Major.Ebro built Majors under liecence from Ford ,as the Ebro Super 55 and Ebro 155.TSG.
