2 valve head interchange/ engine ID


Recommended Posts

I'm looking to see if anyone has any info about what heads can interchange with the engine in my truck. Unfortunately the trucks VIN comes back to a glider kit and the engines data plate is missing so I'm not sure what engine I have, its a 2 valve with tip turbine and side mount cooler. Guessing a 285-315? Is there any way to know for sure? Truck is an '82 not sure on the engine, saw a 77 stamped on the side of the head.

Engine dropped a valve and I am in need of a replacement head but they are proving difficult to come buy. The part# on the damaged head is 732GB5218B. It does not have engine brakes. Will any E6 2 valve Mack head work or does the part number need to match exactly?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks! Got a head on the way.

Still would like to know if any one has any ideas on how to ID the engine without a data plate??

The #'s that you want have been stamped  ahead of the fuel pump on the top flat deck of the timing case.

Tip Turbine first offered in 1972 or 1973.

For example this serial number translates to a ENDT675. Early 1970's mack dropped the ENDT and such. TB indicated a 675 with Dynatard. Find your number and we can i.d. it.  If you can not find it on the timing case the look at the rear behind the head area on the slim chance it was originally in a COE
