Re: Fw: Dodge Block Casting Numbers and Letters



Mine doesn’t have either 2R or 3R!

I am posting this email for David, as it got misdirected.

Another Mopar mystery. My recall is that there is no definitive reference for the meaning of Mopar engine casting numbers like AAQA on some of the blocks, like what Darrell Davis' reference  books did for 1960 to 1965 Dodge and Plymouth hi-po cars.

There was speculation that AAQA meant the casting was made to use Ambient Air Quality Analysis to see if the casting process met The Clean Air Act's monitoring requirements for pollutants. As for 2R or 3R, I've not seen any explanation as to what they mean. 

Thanks,
