DD 6-71 serial number year
« on: July 05, 2013, 04:51:42 PM »
Does any one have a book that lists an old 6-71 engine with HV injectors?  I need a printed page saying what year this engine is:

Serial number:

6A23789

Thanks if you can help...

I found this:   http://igor.chudov.com/manuals/Detroit-Diesel/Detroit-Diesel-Series-53/Detroit-Diesel-Engine-Serial-Numbers.pdf

but it only goes back to 1960.  Looks like yours is considerably older than that.
