Question Industrial Engine ID

In the orchard I work in we dont know really what engine one of our wind machine has. So I am hoping that someone out there can help me. We know it is a old motor weve been told both 292 and 332. But here are the numbers off the Id plate.

Serial: 4645-E14KB
Type: B8PK-6003-3
Options: S0-742

B8 may indicate 1968, but I am unsure about the rest. Maybe Dennis can come up with more.

Hypoid has a good reputation on FTE.Hypoid has a good reputation on FTE.
292 and 332 are CIDs for the Y-block; consistent with the B8 ('58) prefix.
Cool motors, check in at the Y-Block forum for more info:

There are two studs in the center of the valve cover there are no other bolts that hold them on. and the disturbutor is at the back of the motor too. I didnt know that ford put them back there.

Ok, it's a Y-block, or a Lincoln Y. Similar to each other, but not identical. Not much interchanges, either.

At this point, to tell them apart, look at the exhaust manifold bolts or studs. If all the bolts are in a straight line more or less & at the same height (if you know what I mean), it's a Y-block. If the bolts at the very ends of the exhaust manifold are distinctly higher than the middle bolts, it's a Lincoln Y.

Like this: *.....*

The Lincoln Ys were also used in medium & heavy trucks, so it's quite likely they were used for industrial powerplants as well.

If it's a Y block, it should be a 292 as supposedly they were all that was offered from '58 on in the US, but according to one member of the board, 312 CI Y blocks were installed in some trucks later on, (or warranty replacement, I forget which) without Ford stating that they were 312s instead of 292s.

If it's a Lincoln Y, it should be a 332, I believe; the smaller Lincoln Ys were dropped by that time. I won't swear to that though, but some of the other board members should be able to confirm/deny.

Personally, that's one of the few things I dislike about the Y; harder to adjust points when they're in the back, just like a GM.

The Lincoln Y exhaust bolts have a zig-zag pattern. It is not just the end holes that are different.
The lincoln intake ports are side-by-side, like a Chevy (and many other engines of the early '50s).
The thermostat housing is on top of the intake, mounted horizontally

The Ford Y has exhaust holes which are in-line.
The Ford intake ports are stacked, one on top of the other, more like a pair of Chevy ports turned 90 degrees.
The thermostat housing is on the front of the intake, mounted vertically.

There are many other differences, but these are probably the easiest to spot and will help to narrow down the options

ok!! THANKS for the reply and the info.. im a bit confused tho.. it appears we have an exhaust bolt pattern as described for a Lincoln, but the thermostat housing is verticle. I suppose it could have different heads/intake? Maybe these pics will clear things up.. Lincoln exhaust bolt pattern?
Verticle thermostat housing
thanks

That is a Lincoln, no question.

I should have said that the mounting surface of the thermostat housing is horizontal.
