General


The "Super Hurricane" 226 L-Head engine has a cast iron block and cylinder head with 4 main bearings and solid lifters. The exhaust and intake valves are in the block, not in the cylinder head. The engine was used in earlier Willys cars, but was first introduced in 1950 in Willys trucks. The Willys Pickup and Willys Wagon used the 226 from '54 until '63. There was an option 7.3:1 high altitude version available during these years.

The 226 used between 1954-1958 has a slightly higher horse power rating than the later 226.

My 56 Hurricane vin number is on the drivers side about the middle of the engine. There is a flat spot noticeable if your engine is clean and the flat section is visible. My body Vin plate is on the fire wall passenger side and the body vin and engine vin do not match.
