Interesting information. I like the attachment of the 10 Commandments.

OK, so after reading the information on the serial numbers, in the picture below did I correctly point out the serial number on my JB? What about the "N" under Onan? What does that mean? Also I see 2790 on the block too. What does that mean? Earlier in the week I found numbers elsewhere on the block and the feedback was its the casting part number.

Yes that is the serial number. Not sure about the other two. I will check my files. Most likely production numbers.Or production line.
