I didn't realize the 2bbl heads were 45. That makes me feel a lot better because the numbers cast into these heads are 62 and dated coded C049(march 4,1969) for the left bank and C059(March 5, 1969) for the right. Just for the record, the intake manifold has a casting number of 9794234 and date coded C119(March 11, 1969). The Quadrajet's PN is 7029262 with a number 3271 stamped underneath the PN. THe block is definitely stamped YS with a production number of 0599899 above that. I had originally thought(hoped) that someone might have replaced a blown rear end with an COMPLETE USED rear end assembly rather than replace the set of gears but than I thought, who would do such a ***** thing. Especially one with 2.56 gears!!! When I could not find the partial VIN on the block where all the literature says it should be I started second guessing myself about that rear end assembly.
