Does anyone know what the trailing "55" on a Waukesha "Model-6SRKR 55" might stand for? It seems too low for a h.p. rating. It is currently mounted in a 1939 Coleman G-55, but we are not sure if it is original, or a replacement. The standared engine for a G-55 in 1939 was a BUDA-L525.

Also, from the model number alone, it is possible to estimate the engine "build date"?

Thanks...

A little late---been preoccupied---bit if you're still there the "55" is a works designation, usually for the accessories (ign, carb etc) on your particular variation, or possibly a "purchaser" designation...
However, for all things old Wauks check the Wauk Eng Hist Soc website (wehs.net); for info on your specific engine send all info on tag; they're all volunteer, ex-Wauk employees, supported by Wauk..
You'll find them very friendly and helpful, dedicated to keeping old Wauks going (manuals, help, advice, sympathy but no parts)...
