1941 L-head Dodge

Hello, I recently bought a 1941 Dodge 1/2 Ton pickup. The engine runs but needs rebuilding. I hope to "trick it up a bit" to squeeze a few more HP out of it. This seems like a great place to get some tips on doing that.

Yes, hello to a fellow Moparite...

I have a 230 I'm going to give 'the business' one of these days, but I imagine your engine is either the long block or it's a 201 or 218... do you know which engine you have in there?

My 41 Dodge 1/2 Ton 4x4 has an engine with the following number stamped in the block just below the thermostat housing. D22 30949WN. I can't find that serial number listed any where. Any suggestions to where more information can be found out about this engine?
Thanks

Don't worry about the numbers, they are of no real benefit...

First thing is measure the length of the cylinder head, that will tell you a lot. If it's over 2 feet long (actually close to 25") it's a big engine, if it's under 2 feet long (23") it's the 201/210/230 size engine.

Once you know the length you know a lot about the engine.
