Hey guys looking for a early 1949 331 Cadillac engine or a complete short block or block core. My block is a 52 with all the early 49 accessories on it. It actually has two dipsticks on it lol. Wanted to find the correct early block at least. But I'm down with a whole engine if that's all I can find. Also looking for a left side exhaust manifold, single groove pulleys and a fan assembly.

Thanks
A. Shields

I might be willing to sell the engine out of my 49 Cad series 61 4 door. It's seized, but complete down to the air cleaner. Don't know what early 49 means ? But it's a 49. I'm in Bakesfield Ca. Ken Perry

I have one pair of the early 1949 valve covers in excellent condition.  These are correct for the early engine, with the 2-bolt mounting arrangement.  If You can use these please contact me. I also have ONE of the elusive spark plug wire metal conduits that go with the early 2-bolt valve cover.  Thanks. Joe Cutler  508-476-3490  or email:  49caddyman@gmail.com

Thanks Joe, I already have a nice set. I'm mostly looking for a good running 49 engine now. The motor I have isn't in as nice of shape as it was supposed to be.
