Hi guys,I am in my third month part time motir pool ww2 jeep restoration project.
Here are a few pictures with my both my sons.

I have a question about the engine.
It has a serial number GPW 124536 on top between the block and the water pump. Is it correct for a ww2 engine to have a serial number there?
The engine is chain driven, I am the third owner since the war and I have paperwort with this serial # Written on the paper from the custom officer in 1952.

I need some knowledge here.

Thank you for your help

I will send more pictures as work progress.
