I'm fairly certain it's a Chrysler based on the external oil pump and the angled distributor driven from it. Now as to which one... They produced many flathead 6's from 20x something, through 218, 231, 251 and up to 265 cubes. Search the block ID number to find out whatcha got. There are a lot of sources for parts but one you might want to ring up is Vintage Power Wagons in Iowa. *Once you know what it is.

There is a "Pad" on the left side of the block, just below the head that will tell you what model the engine is.

I had seen the pad and saw no markings. I just took some sand paper to the pad and you can just see a faint Y

How long is the cylinder head? 23 inches (218 or 230 cu. in.) or 25 inches (236, 251, 265 cu. in.).

It is definitely a MoPar flathead.

Tip offs are the oil pump, road draft tube, thermostat housing, freeze plug locations and a few other things.

I suspect a Plymouth/Dodge. The Chrysler/DeSoto motors were similar but a couple of inches longer.

Oh, and the motor is probably 1950 or older based upon the thermostat housing and water pump.

Bob, thanks The head is 23 inches long. so it's 218 or 230 good start.
D huling, It appears that it was both gas and propane not sure if it was a add on kit or factory, It had a propane block above the Zenith carb. and in the grill it has a circle to hold the propane tank inside the grill area.
