Question lincoln y block I.D.

Hi everyone,
I hope someone can help me to I.D this motor
I am looking at buying a Lincoln truck motor supposedly a 317,for my 1952 pickup. The motor was in a 1954 cab over Ford, possibly of Canadian origin.
The casting numbers on the block dont seem to line up with the info I have from
www.y block .com also the numbers /letters are very hard to see exactly on this motor,
The casting looks like it could be CSTE 6019A , located upside down on the right hand rear side of the block, not above the oil filter like a Ford y block.
The heads have ECT-E stamped onto a machined spot on the rear of them

Does any of this make sense to anyone ?????
Cheers Swampfox

I think you'll find that the second letter you have called an 'S'...is probably actually a number? Make sure it's not a 5 or 6 or maybe an 8? The first letter which is a 'C'...means the engine was made in the 1960's,so I don't think it's the proper motor from a 1954 Ford Truck.A photo of the engine would also be very helpful...regards,Luke!!

Re: lincoln y block I.D.

swampfox, have you thought about what tranny you would run with a Lincoln Y-block in a pickup ? The LYB has a unique bellhousing bolt pattern, so your choices of manual bell or auto tranny are limited. There were a few 1957 Mercurys with 368s and 3 speeds, but these are rare. Most truck LYB bells are for heavy duty 5 speeds. You may want to consider a Lincoln 317-341-368 with an auto tranny.
