Tech- - Engine / what engine is in my 1962 Chrysler Saratoga

I've stripped all the paint off the engine and can't find any markings but the ones I mentioned before.

the car is not much to look at right now it's in pieces all over the shop. Been working on the front fenders so they are off as well as the hood, bumpers lights etc. I will be sure to post a pic once I get it back together

No problem. I guess if I can't find out if it is a 361 or 383 it won't matter too much if all the Canuk ones are painted red. I'm not doing a numbers matching car or anything just want it to look right. thanks

That pad is the one that has the SC2- on it, with the numbers 20704C underneath. That yellow mark is pointing to where the dizzy goes, I took it off to get a better look.

The first picture you posted of the unrestored windsor is identical to my engine. I have been able to get the paint from a Chrysler dealer. As you said the alternator brackets seem to be painted red. Is the power steering pump red as well. I notice on mine the radiator support panel is painted black, I was going to paint it white to match the body colour would that be correct. I may have asked a lot of these questions when I was on earlier in the year but I had a slight stroke and lost a lot of memory, so I'm slowly getting it back, and since I only came to Canada five years ago from England I don't know the Canadian cars very well but I love the old classics so thanks everyone for all the help. The engine in the first picture, is it a 361 or a 383 do you know?

Here's another pic from the top. It  doesn't seem to have the triangle piece on it and there are no numbers there. It is definitely a mystery and doin my head in.

I have a shot with more of the engine in it. Having a hard time keeping the pics small enouth to upload. The yellow line on the pic points to where the dizzy goes and the pad just below it is where those numbers are stamped. I'm stripping most of the engine to get the old paint off to repaint it. I can't see any numbers on the other side at all . maybe once I get it all stripped and cleaned I will find something. Someone said the Canadian engines were all painted red as this one is. Do you know if it was a certain color of red

Thanks guys, I guess I'm going to have to do some more detective work and look for more numbers.

Hi everyone. haven't been on in a while due to some health problems. I'm trying to find out what engine I have in my 62 Saratoga. the casting number on the side of the block is 2128854. the pad near the distributor has SC2 with a dash after it and below it is the number 20704C with the 2 being smaller than the rest of the numbers. any help would be appreciated

Tech- - ELECTRICAL / Negative ground or Positive Ground??
« on: May 28, 2010, 04:17:26 PM »
I don't know what the wheel base is on it but will try to find out. I do know that the tail lights, bumper rear chrome are shared with Newport New Yorker, 300 and the dodge 880 62 models. My car was made in Windsor, Canada. What's confusing me is the car I looked at yesterday was also made in Windsor and also had a generator and both seem original,but as I said his battery was positive ground and mine appears to be negative, going off the battery terminals on the vehicle. They both have the same regulator. I was told to remove the regulator and look for positive or negative markings, there are none on mine. The car seems to run ok other than showing it charging in reverse. Just frightened of doing any damage. Could this be converted to an alternator?  According to what I've been able to find out the 1962 Canadian Saratoga was equivalent to the Chrysler 300 Sport in the U.S. they both had the model # SC2-M. I know 62 was the last year for the slanted head lights in Canada.

I just purchased a 1962 Chrysler Saratoga and it has a generator instead of an alternator. I don't know if it is supposed to be positive ground or negative. I looked at another 62 Saratoga yesterday and it was wired positive ground but like mine it seems to be charging but  the amp meter was reading discharge also I acquired a wiring diagram but it shows an alternator not a generator. It is for a 62 Chrysler 300, Newport or New Yorker. Any ideas???
