Hey Guys Im buying a 2001 Dodge 2500 4x4 and Im trying to find the Block casting Number to see if its a 53 block or not Im having problems finding the number. is there any way to find out beside looking at the casting number. I have the truck at the house now and let it cool down and going to go look again with a light and take the wiring harness off and see if i can find it easier.



Thanks

Hey Mutch79 I was Checking at the Front of the block ( I have a Diesel power mag and it was saying its driver side front on the block ) thats were i was looking I had to unbolt a clamp that holds the wiring harness to see the numbers. (right below the injector pump )

Hey Clunk there is no casting number where the wiring harness goes its smooth as a babys butt. But I will check the other side when i get the truck. But I know the truck was built in mexico.

Well BOOSTEDONE I would like to know what block I have and If its a 53 block I can go ahead and start looking for a new block and start building the new motor like i want and just wait for the old block to crank. Because I would hate to not have a new motor ready and the one in the truck cranks because I did not take 5mins and check for a little number on the block and be blind sided later.

Because if the block is a 53 why would spend a ton of money on the motor and I know the block is going to crank .

Im betting the Block is not a 53. Because I looked on the other side first and did not see anything. I'll get the truck tomorrow and Im going to double check the Block because i do not want to spend the money on upgrades if I have to start looking for a new block.
