Ok, the engine is in a 1957 super 55 and has 550 sheet metal . So this engine should have the larger cubic inches correct ? I assume more HP than the original diesel engine ? It has the American Bosch injector pump.

Well we don't know if you just have a later block or a complete later engine. The 155 cubic inch engines have larger valves and the intake manifold and they bolt on different. The exhaust manifold is also different. Do you have the stamped engine number by the alternator. What is the model of the starter>

These are good questions, I couldn't find any numbers by the alternator but I did take some pics for you guys that can identify this stuff.

The head and the intake manifold are for a 144 cubic inch engine. Those 155 cubic inch sleeve also fit the older blocks.
