The 1938 engine serial number stamped on the rear of the block W69256HA

With the head pulled off we see why things are stuck tight.

The engine is easily removed with no front end in the way.

The oil pan removed we see spiders didn't mind the dark oily bottom end.

It is always an adventure pulling out sleeves in something that has been sitting outside a long time
Here we see mice had filled it with dirt and chaff, the water pump wouldn't have liked that.

Nice that they used to cast the date right into the block.
