Engine ID Code Example: V0101CLJ - (V = Plant, 01 = Month, 01 = Day, CLJ = Engine Suffix Code)
Another example: T0830CTY - (T = Tonawanda, 08 = August, 30 = 30th day, CTY = 1970 396 Camaro, 375 hp, 11.0:1, TH400)

F Flint (Motor) S Saginaw Service
H Hydramatic T Tonawanda
K St. Catherines, Ontario V Flint (Engine)
(McKinnon Industries Canada)

thanks for the reply, on the engine info. another interesting thing about this combo is that it has a parking brake lever made on side of transmission. there is a drum that mount in between trans and driveshaft , that has brake shoes on the drum which a linkage attaches to the lever on side of trans

that type of setup is for 1 ton+ trucks. 57 283 has no side motor mounts check that out sell it to someone that is restoring a 57' chevy or corvette.

i didn"t notice the side mounts but will look tomorrow. i does have what appears to be some mounts on front of engine, on each side of timing chain cover, it looks kinda like a rubber isolator on a stud. it"s for sale if anyone interested.
