160AX-LI stamped tag
« on: May 15, 2018, 11:00:09 PM »
As Shon and I continue working on our halftrack, we continue to find many things that we don't know anything about.  When we come across these things, I come here to get us set straight. 

We noticed a tag that was stamped as 160AX-LI.  Is this a standard or does it have a different meaning, such as a rebuild or something?  I did a little google-fu and haven't come across anything.

I haven't seen that before. If it is a tag for the engine why is it on the bell housing? Very interesting. It may very well be some sort of rebuild tag. That's my guess.

I have two engines that have the same type of tag as well. I am in the same boat as you and others have no idea what they are there for.
