Hi All
Glad to be a new member, I find myself on this site regularly researching and learning from all.Decided to join......Just bought a 63 NovA SS Convertible. ACC Code 3,194 inline six, great running car,fun to drive. I believe the car came from IOWA. Cream Colored /Saddle Tan Interior, All Stock.

Trying to decode an engine casting number that insists that the engine is a 292. However the side plates are 4", the motor mounts are directly across from one another. The engine serial indicates 194/Power-glide. Searching the internet I have come across other Chevy II owners with this same casting number and nothing but 292 answers from the web? Possible Canadian casting or assembly?

Engine Casting: 3788378
CON3 K91
Engine Serial: FII28HF

Thanks for any help in this puzzle.

Welcome! Short valve covers, fuel pump up by the distributor and the 'HF' suffix all point to a 194 backed by a power glide. When possible, you ought to put a few pictures of your convertible up on the site. Sounds like a nice car.
