what size engine?

Going through some parts catalogs for the 62 F100. It is showing three different engine sizes for the I6. O'reillys lists the engine as the 3.7L. Rock Auto gives me the options of the 3.6L and 4.1L. Were there different engine's for these trucks? And how are they figuring these sizes considering that they didn't use "liters" as a measurement system for these trucks in the 60's.

How would I be able to tell which one mine is? Vin #? Numbers on the engine?

and thats if it is the same engine, remember that these trucks arent just a little old and parts (also engines) get swaped out.

The 4th digit of the VIN is the engine code.

B = 262 I-6 / C = 292 2V V8 / J = 223 I-6.
