Christopher,

That photo is a great example of how wierd things can be. I notice the C on your fram rail was stamped over with a Y.

Still looking for the s/n on the frame rail, ain't found snot yet. On the up side, engine turns over. Pulled Radiator, fan belt and shroud, and turned the motor over with a breakover wrench... Surprised to see two thermostats! sheesh...

The left and right cooling systems are seperate on the flathead, the only comon area is the radiator.
You can disconnect a water pump pull the head on that side and run the engine, don't know why ya would want to do that, but it can be done.
Look on the crossmember now that you have the raditor out and see if the SN might be there. A heavy wire brush will help there or as described before on the frame rail.
I wouldn't put too much faith in the on in the glove box, the plate and/or the glove box door can be swapped out. I've sent a couple out to folks fron Ol Trucks that will never see the road again.
