The serial # should be stamped by the carb side flywheel on a little spot. I know thats where it is on the 118's so it should be there also.

Nope, on a 346 the serial # is on the end of the crankshaft. Dont know why they thought that was a good idea because that is a replaceable part.

The serial number is stamped on a milled flat area just forward (head end) of the crank case cover on the top side of the engine.

Nope, a 346 is different than all the other ZC's when it comes to the location of the serial # It will be stamped on the end of the crankshaft.

Now if your engine is a BELL mfg'd "FM Copy" all bets are off.

You learn something every day. I thought it was on top of the crankcase.
