Chrysler Engine ID Verification

Post by BradZ » Thu Nov 15, 2018 2:13 pm

I was under the impression that I had Chrysler 318 Engines. But I was getting pictures of the ID tags on the engine for my insurance agent and this is what they looked like. You may have to zoom in but the numbers are as follows:
M360BWR15 912 & M360BWL15 912.

Does this mean I actually have Chrysler 360s?

The PO did tell me the engines were not the original ones and that they were rebuilt some years back. He did not have receipts so I took it as a sales pitch at the time. He bought the boat 6 years ago from the first PO who bought it new. The first PO was a close family friend and was docked next to the boat when I bought it and verified the story. Everyone in the marina told me the same story also. The story goes that the boat was bought at the same marina were I bought it privately and has never been anywhere else and the PO has been super helpful even now three months later. The engines run super good from idle up to 3200 rpm is as high as I pushed them on the one and only outing I was able to squeeze in before haul out.

Yup, so long as the engines match the tags. Have a look at the side of the block below the heads, there should be a casting number , middle set should say the engine size.
